Um... Fab Alert?

death wish coffee

Personally, this wouldn't make me feel fabulous. Far from it. It would likely make me run into the street, screeching and tearing my hair out in clumps.

Some people, however, might find it fabulous. You go, jitterbugs.

Behold: Death Wish Coffee, which bills itself as "the world's strongest coffee."

Your basic cup of joe containes about 320 milligrams of caffeine. Sixteen ounces of Death Wish: about 660 milligrams.

According to the company's website:  "Death Wish Coffee is the most highly caffeinated premium dark roast organic coffee in the world. This is extreme coffee, not for the weak. Consider yourself warned."

Note to my premium dark roast organic coffee-loving husband: Please don't try it. I'm high-strung enough for both of us, dahling.

jeni's influenza sorbet Influenza Sorbet by Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. Kick ass! 

Cayenne pepper, ginger, Maker's Mark bourbon, honey, and cold- and flu-fighting orange and lemon juices. Cures whatever ails you.

Says Jeni via her site

“This is our flu-season fix. It’s proven to clear nasal passages, ease a sore throat, and soothe the body. It’s modeled on the home remedy my mother and grandmother made when anyone in the family was under the weather. Sniffles, aches, and fevers meant one thing: a mug of hot whiskey with honey and lemon juice, then straight to bed.”

Twenty-three more shopping days 'til Christmas, dahling.

For your favorite rocker: Jeff Gold's 101 Essential Rock Records—The Golden Age of Vinyl From the Beatles to the Sex Pistols, an overview of rock's most seminal albums.

Torani Chicken 'N Waffles syrup

The company suggests trying it drizzled on buttered biscuits, cornbread or in bourbon cocktails. 

Since Torani syrups are so popular for flavored coffee, why not try a chicken 'n wafflechino? Let me know how it is. I'm not trying that. I'm simply suggesting that you try it.

Behold: blk. It's black spring water, dahling. Fun! 

It looks like sludge, but is good for you. You see, blk. is infused with fulvic trace minerals, which play a critical role in the growth of plant life, assisting in the transport and absorption of nutrients inside the plant cell. Once the minerals are added to pure water, the water turns black naturally without the use of any artificial dyes or colorings. Science lesson adjourned. 

Great packaging. Five stars.
