Daily nuggets of inspiration from the good folk
Strawberries and cream, peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and Vegemite… apparently.
Images of Vegemite-filled Dairy Milk have been doing the rounds on social media down under. But until now, many were left wondering whether it was just a photoshopped hoax.
Cadbury Australia have announced the product is very much real, encouraging fans to even suggest their own foodie pairings with the hashtag #ChocPlusWhat.
Whether it’s a gimmick, or a genuinely tasty combination, remains to be tasted. But even a purchase out of curiosity, is still a purchase after all.

To show just how green they are, Adidas are getting rid of colour altogether.
In the sports brand’s latest push towards ‘green tech’, they have released a pair of sustainable football cleats made with zero chemicals or pigment.
As we all become more eco-conscious, we increasingly look to our favourite brands to help us out, so this could be a nice step forward from the sports giant.
There are only 3,000 pairs of the ‘no dye’ boots in the world – and just 210 are making their way to the UK – so if you want to get your hands (or feet) on a pair, you better be quick.

Companies can spend millions on carefully crafting their logos and slogans in the hope they will bring customers flocking.
But when you combine the internet and a few basic photoshop skills, all bets are off, and you get the online craze of creating honest logos and slogans.
Advertising student Julien Delerue, has added to the internet’s efforts with these ads for Kleenex – reworking their logo to show exactly how their tissues are often used. It’s an honest bit of fun – rather nicely executed.

For those who like their Big Macs on the move, comes the aptly named BagTray from McDonald’s in Hungary.
With a sturdier, perforated bottom, this takeout paper bag doubles up as a serving tray, with plenty of space for your meal, sauces, Diet Coke and all.
‘Making takeaway more convenient’ – that’s the claim at least. Although going to Hungary to try it doesn’t seem particularly convenient, so here’s hoping this innovation is a tearaway success and makes it to other shores.

Channel 4 have just launched 4NewsWall – a new news site offering users a ‘wall’ of gifs. Created for 16-34-year-olds, each gif can be clicked for further reading, with links to share everything on your social channel of choice.
In response to the apathy that often comes with current affairs, the dumbing down of news for younger audiences, the sheer amount of content out there, and the hyperactive social sharing of the internet – it might be time to take gifs a little more seriously.
