What'll They Think of Next?

I'm a sucker for new products. Chocolate Skittles? I'll try 'em. Banana Reese's Cups? Send 'em my way.

But this, a self-heating can of hot chocolate with marshmallows, takes the cake.

Here's what you do: peel the seal, push a button, wait five minutes, shake and enjoy a rich, hot, delicious hot chocolate. I was in awe.

They also come in Chai Tea Latte, Green Tea Latte, Hazelnut Latte, etc., etc., etc. See here for complete listing.

We found these at Walmart for $2. Not cost-effective if you're sitting at home, but well worth it if you're on the road. Or camping. I think they'd be great for camping.

You still can't toast bread in less than 2.5 minutes!

i actually tried one of these last week - a coworker brought one in.

While it is an awesome idea, especially for camping, etc. I just didn't like the taste. I thought it was WAY too sweet. Almost tasted gritty, like there was too much sugar.

Anything that "self-heats" concerns me a little. Have you tried it yet?

I am totally weirded out by this.

Totally cancer-causing.
