Tim Hortons Creates “The Priestley” Donut From ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Canada Episode
Each year when the Easter season rolls around and people run out to get their children their very own bunnies only to then return or abandon them after the holiday when the novelty wears off, I encourage people to say “Make Mine Chocolate” – which means, if you want to give a bunny, make it a chocolate one!
Thanks to Think Geek, this Easter I can say “Make Mine A Chocolate Zombie Bunny!
This 8-ounce Chocolate Zombie Bunny is made of solid white chocolate and may or may not infect you with a zombie virus, but I think it will be safe to pass it around to the children this Easter [...]

The famous Canadian eatery Tim Hortons played a big role in last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, where Barney goes to Canada to talk to Robin’s past boyfriends to find out who she was obsessed with in her past. Each ex he talks with seems more fixated on the free Tim Hortons donuts Barney is offering than with reminiscing about Robin. Eventually, Barney gets his hands on an installment of Underneath The Tunes — Canada’s supposed answer to VH1′s Behind The Music — that exposes a dark period from Robin’s years as the Canadian teen musical sensation Robin Sparkles.
In the Underneath The Tunes segment, several famous Canadians are interviewed regarding Robin’s historic transition in the 1990s from happy go lucky teeny bopper Robin Sparkles to scorned stalker goth-grunge chick Robin Daggers. Rush’s Geddy Lee, K.D. Lang, Paul Shaffer, and Jeopardy host Alex Trebek all recall which Tim Hortons they were in and which donut they were eating when Robin made her outrageous public shift and “lost it.”
90210 alum Jason Priestley said he was at a Tim Hortons in Squamish, British Columbia, where he crammed a Timbit into a strawberry vanilla and invented “The Priestley.” The fast-food chain was so excited to be featured in the episode that they were inspired today to actually create “The Priestley”!

Farewell Twinkies! Snack Cake Giant Hostess Closes Down
It’s nearly impossible to watch HBO’s Game of Thrones without getting hungry or thirsty for some good old medieval fare, and even harder to do so while reading George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series.
There are plenty of related cookbooks and recipes for those of us desperate enough to eat the way the people of Westeros eat, and most of the drink is readily available in reality. But, when it comes to beer specifically, fans will soon have the option of picking up some Game of Thrones themed suds.

Twinkies and all the other products produced by the Hostess Company, which has been producing many compact dessert confections for decades and is the principal owner of other brands as Wonder Bread and the Drake’s line of cupcakes and snacks, is saying goodbye. The company ceased production, claimed bankruptcy, and moves to sell all its assets, various sources including CNN reported today. The company also plans to lay off over 18,000 employees.
A major pop cultural icon in the gourmet sense and junk food of the highest order, the Twinkie, which has to stand as the benchmark product offered in the Hostess oeuvre, is the 5-star standard in a quick snack. Invented in 1930 in Illinois, the cylinder-shaped golden sponge cake with cream in the middle has and continues to continued to adorn lunchboxes for children of all ages for decades and decades; it’s become the stereotypical after meal treat in those situations [...]

Check out this clever faux product someone created that will make every Star Wars fan scream “WANT!”
It’s Ben & Jerry’s Boba Fett Carbonite Crunch Ice Cream, a vanilla ice cream with salted caramel swirl and chocolate Han Solo miniatures frozen in carbonite — you can see the frozen chocolate Hans in the background!
Would this not be the fastest-selling ice cream in history? I can see the supermarket display now: a big cardboard Slave I replica that lights up and says,”Eat up! You’re no good to me dead.” Oh, imagine the possibilities! [...]
