Mars Real Chocolate Relief Act - Free Chocolate on Fridays

For nearly 100 years, Mars has made chocolate with 100% cocoa butter, which is taste bud-craving, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate. Without cocoa butter, chocolate simply is not chocolate. Some companies use artificial ingredients to make their chocolate sweeter or because it's cheaper but at Mars there is no substitute for cocoa butter.

What is Real Chocolate Relief? Times are tough and Mars wants to help. How, you ask? Every Friday through September, Mars will give away free real chocolate to 250,000 people. That means you can enjoy your favorite Mars candy brands--M&M'S®, SNICKERS®, TWIX®, 3 MUSKETEERS®, MILKY WAY® and DOVE®-- for free!

Note, however, when they say free, you have to register on the Mars site ( and, if you are one of the lucky ones, you will win a coupon which can be redeemed for your favorite Mars chocolate bar. So, not everyone will automatically win free chocolate. No more than 250,000 eligible individuals per Friday will win and there are a few other terms and conditions which you can read on the website.

Good luck!

Dining blindfolded makes for an extreme eating experience

Dark dining is a trend sweeping through Europe and the US where diners are treated to fine cuisine while blindfolded. Because diners cannot see the food, they must use their sense of touch, smell and taste to eat each dish. Dana Salisbury, Artistic Diretor at Dark Dining Projects in New York, serves sensory feasts to blindfolded guests. Andre Crump brought the concept of dark dining to the San Francisco area in 2007, and since then he's been bringing the party to a different restaurant every four months. Don a blindfold and put your trust in the chef at this intimate rotating dinner party. The party begins with cocktails before guests slip on their blindfolds -- after which only the wait staff, fitted with military-grade night-vision goggles, can see. The experience can be both scary and sensual and gives a whole new meaning to the term blind date. Dark Dining events can be found in several major cities across the US including Opaque, which hosts wholly-dark dining events in Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco.

151-Pound SpongeBob SquarePants Cupcake Sets Guinness Record

A cupcake weighing in at 151 pounds has been certified as the world's largest by Guinness World Records. Fifteen pounds of fudge filling and 60 pounds of yellow icing decorate the 1-foot tall, 2-foot wide sugary sweet. Guinness World Records adjudicator Danny Girton Jr. called it a "fun and creative achievement." The cupcake was made by, which is run by cake-decoration supplier and marketer DecoPac. Company spokeswoman Jamie Miller said the giant cupcake will go to a pig farm. The company decided against giving away pieces to mall patrons because most would not have had frosting. Instead, gave away 4,000 smaller cupcakes.

A candle topped the creation, bringing the total height to 4 feet. The cupcake's final size yielded 1,500 servings.

 The world record cupcake was made as part of a celebration of the 10th anniversary of Nickelodeon character SpongeBob SquarePants held at Mall of America's Nickelodeon Universe.
