Despite the fact that I have been surrounded by Menchie’s frozen yogurt shops everywhere I have lived, I’ve never actually seen one. So if you’re not as oblivious as I am, visit one of their stores to pick up a “Moto Fro-Yo” insulated bag with their mascot riding a pink scooter. It runs around $9.99. I’m also including some other scooter imagery from a quick web search.

Remember this “Rare Bit O’Swag” I posted awhile back â€” the Goggo/IWL/Heinkelesque cookie mold? Well I finally got around to making cookies with it due in large part to the help of my friend Jessica S.
We had loads of fun making them and we were amazed a wooden mold could make such great looking cookies. I want to play around using other recipes to see what kind of results I get.
Want to take a stab at making Speculaas with you own molds? Check out this very well done video and the recipe. Keep in mind that Jessica and I used double the spices for a delicious result. We even added fresh ground pepper.
This is the first respectable looking site I’ve come across that features the pop can scooters. (And here’s some kismet – they’re located in Brighton!) They’re handmade out of recycled cans and have movable steering, rotating wheels and even a working kickstand. You can choose from Coke, Pepsi, Heineken, Tiger Beer, Schwepps Tonic or Schwepps Soda. They measure approximately 18cm x 11cm x 9cm or approximately 7″ X 4.3″ X 3.5″. They cost Â£9.95 each and come in a gift box made from 100% recycled materials. The site does note that these are not meant to be children’s toys.
Only those lucky Canadians with Bendix stores nearby can shop for these ceramic cup gift sets. Each has a world city theme with Rome, London, Paris and New York featured. There are also tea bag holders in this collection. To see everything, type “Divas” into the search window.
