Not only do bananas belong in bunches, but they also belong hanging from a tree. Since most of us can’t find the time to tend the banana groves in our backyard, we need to find alternate options for banana bunch hanging. Enter the Umbra Banana Split. A nifty little banana hanger, the design by Jason Nip features styling in white and “mellow yellow” for that all important banana appeal (ahem).

No matter if your favorite potluck item to bring to gatherings is brownies, cupcakes or deviled eggs, you’re going to need a way to get them there. Luckily, the Deluxe Bakers Sto ‘N Go can accommodate all that and more. With two deviled egg trays and four standard trays, the portable carrier makes it easy to share your favorites with a crowd. The shelves slide in and out and are completely adjustable, while the retractable handle makes for easy portability. Not only can you leave undesirable smushed eggs in the past, but with this carrier, there’s also room for a batch of brownies. (Hint, hint.)

While I appreciate the enthusiasm of this Expandable Cookie Cooling Rack, I just don’t know if I actually see it being used to its full potential. Utilizing a space-saving design when not in use, the telescoping steel surface slides out to reveal two additional cooling racks. Starting at a measurement of 14-inches by 13.75-inches, with a height of 1.5-inches, the cooling rack may provide plenty of room to cool cookies and other baked goods, but chances are those additional racks will never get a chance to know the sweet delight of a sugary touch. At least around these parts, freshly baked cookies hot out of the oven simply don’t last that long.

Does the light really shut off when you close the ice chest door? Wait, there is no light inside the ice chest. That is, unless you have this Cooler Light from Taylor Gifts. Other than providing minutes of entertainment as the mystery of the cooler light is explored by opening and shutting the ice chest, the cooler light provides much needed illumination for when the party heads into the night. There’s nothing worse than grabbing a Coke when what you really wanted was a PBR. Now that all-too-common mix-up can finally be avoided. As for the cooler light? Yes, it does shut off automatically twenty seconds after you close the lid. But to see the light gnomes in action, you’ll have to buy one and see for yourself.

The Wild Fling Popcorn Basketball Bowl may just be the most ridiculous sports-watching accessory since the beer helmet. Not surprisingly, the two hunks of plastic complement each other; drink with one, eat snacks with the other.
Dust off your old beer helmet (because every closet has one, right?) and get up to date with this snack bowl. When the beer helmet runs dry, enjoy the convenience offered by the integrated beverage holder. You’ll find it right next to the remote control. If your beer helmet is in the shop, no worries, because when the popcorn is all gone and the game is over, the bowl doubles (triples?) as a stylish helmet. Remember, it’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you watch the game.
