JELL-O's New Edible Slimes Are As Fun to Eat As They Are to Play With

JELL-O has good news for anyone who has ever gotten hungry watching slime videos on YouTube. As MovieWeb reports, the snack brand has added two new products to their JELL-O Play line: Monster Slime and Unicorn Slime, both of which are 100 percent edible.

JELL-O edible slime starts as a powdered mix. At home, kids and parents can stir three scoops of the powder together with one scoop of warm water for 30 seconds then add an additional tablespoon of warm water to make the slime.

Like the slime you find in toy stores or the DIY kind, this slime is meant to be played with. "The slime stretches if you pull it slowly, but snaps if you pull it apart fast," the product description reads. "It's firm if you squeeze it, but it can also pour and drip like a liquid!" And after they're done playing with their slime, kids (and fun-loving adults) can eat it. As for the slime that does't get eaten and ends up on clothes and hands, JELL-O says it washes off easily with soap and water.

The JELL-O slime comes in two flavors, lime for Monster Slime and strawberry for Unicorn Slime, and will be available in select stores beginning in December. It's part of a line of interactive snack products from JELL-O, which includes pudding pop molds and dirt cups kits.

Now You Can Wear Your Favorite Dunkin' Coffee Flavor as Nail Polish

Dunkin'—the coffee chain formerly known as Dunkin' Donuts—is getting into the beauty business. For a limited time, nail polish inspired by Dunkin's flavored coffees will be available at select nail salons across the country.

The nail polish line includes eight freshly brewed shades. Three pay homage to Dunkin's new signature lattes—cocoa mocha, caramel craze, and blueberry crisp—and three are inspired by the seasonal Baskin-Robbins ice cream-flavored coffees: butter pecan, pistachio almond fudge, and banana split. Nail polishes in Dunkin's iconic pink and orange color palette are also available.

The collection is a collaboration between Dunkin' and the vegan-friendly nail polish company Lauren B. Beauty. While supplies last, the products will be available at certain nail salons in 10 cities where Dunkin' operates, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and Boston. Each purchase of the branded nail polish comes with a $3 Dunkin' gift card. To see if a salon in your area is participating, check out the map below.

Dunkin' isn't the first fast food chain to release its own nail polish line. In 2016, KFC released edible "finger-licking" nail polish that, yes, tasted like chicken.

Australian Family Walking Dog Named Lucky Discovers $24,000 Gold Nugget

An Australian dog named Lucky has lived up to his name. As the Bendigo Advertiser reports, a family from Bendigo in Victoria were walking their pet on May 12 when they literally stumbled upon a hunk of rock resembling gold on the ground. Experts have confirmed that the 20-ounce nugget is indeed gold, and in its intact state it's worth an estimated $24,000.

A father and his two daughters—who wish to remain anonymous—were taking their dog Lucky for a morning walk when one of the girls hit something with her foot. She noticed it wasn't an ordinary rock, and asked her Dad if it might be gold. He suspected it was and took their find to a nearby supermarket to weigh it on the deli scale.

Weighing over a pound, the gold nugget could earn the family a small fortune if they wish to sell it. The father says he does plan to find a buyer eventually; he had been struggling financially, and he told the Bendigo Advertiser the lucky event "couldn't be better timing."

The family has decided to keep the location of the discovery a secret. They plan to go for more walks in the area in hopes of striking gold twice.
