Scotland’s “Fabric of Flavour”

A collaboration between Johnnie Walker and Harris Tweed Hebrides has spawned a thing of wonder: a tweed said to smell permanently of whisky. The resulting “Fabric of Flavour” is a tweed forever imbued with rich hints of malt, vanilla, dark chocolate, and red fruit consistent with the nose you’d find on a glass of Johnnie Walker Black Label whisky. “Proprietary secrets” are said to be in play with this innovation, so the whys and wherefores of how this was achieved are not readily available. Either way, a scarf or sport coat that never stopped smelling of whisky would be wonderful to own, though, wearing them to one’s place of work is probably inadvisable.

Deep-Fried Egg Nog Shots

Popular food site Oh, Bite It has shared this recipe for Deep-Fried Egg Nog Shots. Somehow, this seems like something that should have existed a long time ago. Regardless, those who prefer their creamy holiday beverages poured over little cubes of cake and deep-fried will be happy to see their dreams realized in a tangibly delicious form.

Coffee Mug Water Pipe

IronMan Designs, LLC has invented a real-life counterpart to the coffee mug water pipe (patent pending) some reading this will remember from having appeared in the horror movie “The Cabin In The Woods.” Soon to be available for purchase at, this product consists of a telescoping tobacco pipe that compacts into a standard-sized 20-oz. coffee mug. Only you and your barista (and perhaps your tobacconist) will know its true secrets.


A Vegan Butcher Shop

The Herbivorous Butcher will be the world’s first vegan butcher shop. Scheduled to open next April in Minneapolis, Minnesota, it recently blew way past its Kickstarter funding goal and is well on its way to being the most intriguing new food shop of 2015.  [Video courtesy of The Herbivorous Butcher YouTube channel]
