So, there's your justification for eating a Hershey bar for breakfast. Or, if you want to disguise (sort of) your indulgence as a ... More >>

    Aah, the holidays. Time for roasted turkey and jingle bells and homemade pies and sriracha candy canes and...wait, what?

    The Demise of Cereal Box Toys?

    When I was home in Pennsylvania over Thanksgiving, I started rifling through some old boxes of my childhood ephemera to see if there was anything worth transporting back to Texas.
