Things We Saw Today: Facebook-Flavored Ice Cream
by Rebecca Pahle | 5:00 pm, September 9th, 2013
You won’t be able to partake in this social network-themed treat unless you’re on Croatia’s Murter Island, where the not-sanctioned-by-Facebook confection can be found exclusively in brothers Admir and Ibi Adili‘s ice cream shop. It’s pretty much just plain ice cream with a blue syrup that tastes like “chewing gum and candy” drizzled on top. So it’s geared towards kids and looks neat at first but ultimately doesn’t have much to it. Fitting. (That’s Nerdalicious)

- Via MTV, Marvel has released a synopsis for the first episode of Agents of SHIELD:
In the premiere episode, “Pilot,” it’s just after the battle of New York, and now that the existence of super heroes and aliens has become public knowledge, the world is trying to come to grips with this new reality. Agent Phil Coulson is back in action and has his eye on a mysterious group called the Rising Tide. In order to track this unseen, unknown enemy, he has assembled a small, highly select group of Agents from the worldwide law-enforcement organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division). The group’s first assignment together as a team finds them trying to track down an ordinary man who has gained extraordinary powers. Powers that could have devastating consequences.
Soooo… pretty much what we already knew. 15 days and counting ’til the September 24th premiere!
