Thank God. The next “pet rock” is here. And it’s a beverage container. The BEER BELLY deluxe kit, including sling, sells for only $49.95.
If you’ve ever wanted to go out on the town… not to look attractive and “hook up”, but only to get pissed drunk for cheap, then this is the invention for you. Simply strap on the BEER BELLY!
Sure, you’ll look about 50lbs heavier in the gut, but that’s all beer baby!

I grew up eating Krispy Kream doughnuts. A hot glazed doughnut and a cold glass of milk used to be about the best treat in the world. (Mom would heat up a KK in the microwave, my brother and I would eat them with a fork, dunking each piece into the cold milk).
Now, a hot glazed doughnut and a good cup of coffee is right up there. A couple of years ago I remember first noticing that Krispy Kream was advertising their coffee as something more than just run-of-the-mill coffee (which, if you are going to charge over $1.50, is a necessary marketing move I imagine). They now have 3 blends. SMOOTH, RICH, and BOLD (oh, and decaf if you count that). This morning I had the opprotunity to try SMOOTH and RICH from their “Coffee Truck” (about 10 cups for about $10). Either the guy making it messed up, or there is very little difference in these two blends. As for the “truck” itself, I was not impressed with the beverage container. Not only was it NOT in the shape of a truck, but it didn’t have a nifty dispenser, just a huge ~5″ opening with a big plastic lid…. which isn’t on the same face as the handle… so any leakage (which it did) goes everywhere while carrying. All said, nothing amazing about the KK coffee, but certainly beats MOST gas station mess. I’m sure their cold milk is good too. Mmm. Milk. I’ll have some now.
