There really isn't much we can say about this, which is a shame, because there should probably be lengthy dissertations on the subject! LOLz!!

The Glamorous Star Cake:
Lucious Lemon Cake
2 ½ cups cake ﬂour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ sticks (12 tablespoons)
unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ cups sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
4 large egg whites plus 1 large
1 cup whole milk
½ teaspoon pure lemon extract
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray two 8-inch round cake pans with nonstick spray. Sift the ﬂour, baking powder, and salt together; set aside.
Beat the butter on medium-high speed until pale and ﬂu#y. Add the sugar and lemon zest and continue to beat until well combined. Add the egg whites, followed by the egg, and beat until fully combined.
Mix together the milk, lemon extract, and vanilla extract in a cup. Reduce mixer speed to low. Add half of the ﬂour mixture to the butter mixture, followed by the milk mixture, and ﬁnally the remainder of the ﬂour. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and give the batter one ﬁnal stir. Divide the batter between the two pans. Smooth the tops of the cakes with a rubber spatula and bake for 38–40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool in pans for 15–20 minutes. Wrap each layer in plastic wrap and freeze for an hour.
Nothing says the holidays quite like a pickle flavored candy cane, right guys??
Not a single human wants these, so we don't even know they exist. Maybe to display them on a shelf and have a laugh about them once in a while. Maybe just as a big middle finger gift to someone you don't really like. Your guess is as good as ours! LOLz!
Here's what the makers say about them, and it's jaw-droppingly weird:
Have you been itchin' for some sweetness to go along with your usual Pringles flavor?
You know, the the flavor that's decent enough if that's what's being offered to you? LOLz! If so, you're in luck!
Pringles is now offering THREE holiday flavors, but only one stands out.

Holidays are simply not the time for sacrificing - especially when it comes down to the treats you grew up loving to share with your family. Unfortunately most of us don't have the same metabolisms we did when we were eight years old, and instead of looking for Santa, we wind up looking like Santa by Christmas Eve.
Here on the farm don't believe in artificial sweeteners or processed diet foods, so we've developed some healthy, natural ways to enjoy our favorite holiday noshing without resorting to poking new notches in our belts.
Egg Nog in front of the fireplace is a holiday ritual at Beekman 1802 Farm. But nog is like a perfect winter storm of both calories and fat. One 8 ounce serving can have more than 400 calories and 20 grams of fat. Our trick? Use half egg nog, and half skim milk. (Even diluting your egg nog with whole milk will save a hundred calories or so.) Add a little extra cinnamon, and you'll barely notice the difference. (Add enough rum, and you won't notice anything.)
