I absolutely love doing these things! Here's what is trending and some cool things to know about:
IT'S TIME TO PUCKER UP: Grandpa Joe's Candy Shop, with locations in Ohio and Pennsylvania, has started making and selling Pickle Juice Soda and the internet has lost its mind! Most people are questioning the craziness, but for those people who love to drink the juice it’s a dream come true.
You know, I'd probably be down to try it at least once! Everything is worth trying at least once just to see how it plays out. You don't have to have it again if you don't like it.
LESS TEST ANXIETY? GO ON SOCIAL MEDIA: Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that undergraduates test anxiety were able to reduce symptoms by 21% when they reached out to friends on social media for support.
I do not get the social media age. I like to detach from it on the weekends because I feel that it can just be way too much. However, I can see how it would ease people's worries. Our Producer Justin used to go on Facebook in High School before he'd take a test.
THE PERFECT DESIGN: Amazon is coming to the rescue with a new service that would allow you to give them a design – the color, fabric, style and cut of your choice – and get a custom piece of clothing delivered within a couple of days.
OH YES! I LOVE THIS!!! I am very picky about what I wear. I always like to go to stores and try things on before I purchase them, to make sure it is something I will truly feel comfortable in. Maybe this will ease that burden.
A COOL NEW POSTAL STAMP: It is to be released August 21st to commemorate the solar eclipse that will hit on that day. The really special thing about the stamp? You can change the design yourself with the touch of a finger. Body heat transforms the eclipse photo to a picture of the moon. When it cools again, the eclipse image returns.
What an amazing way to commemorate something so unique, something that we do not always see on a daily basis. I will be buying them!!
Let me know what you think of all these cool facts!
