As classic junkfood snacks like Twinkies and Ding Dongs—unchanged for generations—slide into obscurity in the age of energy drinks, it’s cool to see the old-timey Cracker Jacks get a marketing makeover. The update to Cracker Jack’d includes a hefty dose of caffeine to spice up new flavors like Spicy Pizzeria, Cheddar BBQ, & Cocoa Java. That’s right, caffeine Cracker Jacks. How’s that for a prize?
The main shortfall of the standard kayak is that even though they’re lightweight, they’re big, and cumbersome and you need a truck or roof rack to get them around. But the Oru Kayak ends all that. This thing is collapsible. It’s a full-size 12-foot long kayak that packs down to a very portable size allowing you to check it on a flight, stow it in the trunk of your car, even backpack it into remote mountain waters.

We can all appreciate a nice rack. Whether the display is a deer, elk, your neighbor’s wife (don’t stare), or even the steering system off your OG mountain bike, a good mount will always draw attention. Bicycle Taxidermy offers a variety of pre-mounted bike “horns” and “antlers” as well as the parts to mount your own. Odd perhaps, but certainly less creepy than a jackalope or ogling another man’s rack.
