Celery Inside Celery For Celery Infinity

Hutzler Snack Attack Celery and Dip to Go Serve Set

You are what you eat. So of course, it’s important to know what you put into your body. One way to do that is to look at the package. The list of ingredients are a telling sign of what’s to come. But what of food that has no ingredient list? Shouldn’t our one-ingredient meals get the same treatment?

The Hutzler Snack Attack Celery and Dip to Go Serve Set says yes. It might look more like a mysterious green bullet than a heart of celery, but once you know, you know what’s inside. Not only does the amusing celery container transport celery to and fro, but the design also includes a self-contained dip container.

They say it takes more calories to consume celery than it gives back resulting in so-called negative calories. Of course, that doesn’t include whatever mysterious fatty dip that the dip container has in store. But hey, designing a dip container in the “shape” of dip is probably kind of hard to do.

And here’s something that’s fun to say: Also available in Carrot.

Twinkies Tell The Truth


Twinkies are back and this time they mean it. It is being reported that the iconic snack cake will have a shelf life of 45 days. Hostess Brands recently went through reorganization and it appeared that the fabled snack was in trouble. But you can’t keep a good sponge cake down. Or let it expire.

Somehow, without changing much (or any) of the 37 ingredients that go into a Twinkie, the shelf life has been increased from 26 days to 45 days. The new Hostess company says they still won’t last forever, but… yeah, right.

To participate in “The Sweetest Comeback In The History Of Ever” just visit your local grocery store. Twinkies are set to reappear on July 15th.
