The Titan Sock

The Titan Sock: A No-Show Sock You’ll Actually Want to Wear

The Titan Sock is a no-show sock for people so sick of no-show socks they have sworn them off forever. The creators of The Titan Sock ask you to give no-show socks one last chance. You won’t regret it.

The Titan Sock took the idea of a no-show sock and fixed all the problems you thought were inherent in the concept. If your no-show sock is constantly slipping off your heel, coming off when your shoes do, stinking after just one day, losing its mate in the wash, wearing out and getting holes, or worst of all, actually showing above your shoe – you might be tempted to call off the experiment and go back to a sock with fewer drawbacks.

But The Titan Sock has features to tackle every single one of these problems.

The Titan SockThis no-show sock is also no-slip. Its silicone webbing heel is the secret behind this feature. The fit is so snug that it will only come off when you want it to. It also incorporates silver ionized antimicrobial thread, which actively kills bacteria, preventing the dreaded odor of dirty socks. The fabric is moisture wicking and temperature regulating, further promoting comfortable and odor-free wear.

The Titan Sock’s black and white color scheme is minimalistic, sleek, stylish, and best of all – uniform. If one gets lost in the wash, its mate can simply pair up again with another identical sock. And the silver ionized antimicrobial thread is complemented by reinforced Titan Thread, which is 15 times stronger than steel. These no-show socks will not wear out or develop unsightly holes.

Last but not least, The Titan Sock will not show above your shoe. It takes the no-show part as seriously as you do.

Reduce Food Waste with Silo, the Smart Vacuum System

SiloI like to think that I’m going to eat all of the spinach I purchased at the grocery store this week. But it’s more likely that it will stay in the package and rot before I’m able to enjoy a salad. About one third of all food is wasted. Some families turn to vacuum-sealed products to help prolong their groceries’ useful lives, but many are bulky or simply don’t work.

Silo improves the traditional vacuum-seal process with new and updated technology. Each Silo system comes with a platform base that removes air from the bottom of the storage container. This process allows you to seal liquids, something that is impossible with other vacuum-seal methods. Using Silo will extend the life of your produce by at least five days, and in the case of some foods, much longer.

If you are curious about the life span of your produce, simply ask. Silo actually has Amazon Alexa built in. Users can ask Silo about the freshness of foods inside the containers. Silo can also keep an inventory of what is inside the containers to help you manage your refrigerator and pantry. That information is relayed to Silo’s companion app, which then gives you a best-by date. The app also offers storage suggestions for different types of foods.

It’s simple to vacuum-seal foods with Silo. Just place the foods inside the storage containers and then place the container on the top of the platform base. Press down and the air is sucked out in seconds. Each Silo container is made with Tritan TM plastic. This material is BPA-free, safe for the dishwasher and microwave, sturdy, and stackable. You can purchase containers in various sizes and use them over and over again. Silo comes in either black or white.

Silo has already been tested within a beta community. Those included in the pilot run have praised Silo, saying the system allows them to eat healthy without wasting money or food. Having a Silo system in your kitchen will make life a little easier and less wasteful.

Santo Coffee Cubes: Coffee Made Easy as One-Two-Three

Santo Coffee CubesCoffee keeps getting easier and easier to make, and coffee-lovers keep assimilating. Santo Coffee Cubes are the latest creative way to make a cup of coffee, and over fifteen hundred coffee-lovers have already expressed their approval by backing them on Kickstarter.

Santo Coffee Cubes are made of compressed coffee powder. To use, follow these three steps:

  1. Drop
  2. Stir
  3. Enjoy

Simply Drop one, two, or three cubes into a cup of hot milk or water and Stir for ten seconds. Just like that, your cup of coffee is ready to Enjoy. The creators call it the world’s fastest cup of coffee. It is certainly the world’s most intuitive.

The creators recommend using one cube for 6-8 ounces of liquid, two cubes for 10-12 ounces, or three cubes for 16-24 ounces. This will keep the flavor strong, no matter how much coffee you drink at a time.

Santo Coffee Cubes come in many flavors, including Caramel, Mocha, Amaretto, Vanilla, Cappuccino, Hazelnut, Dark Roast, Light Roast, and Decaf. Each cube is made with natural and organic ingredients and sweetened with a natural unrefined sweetener. Because you can prepare it with water or milk, you can skip the creamer as well as the sugar. And at between sixty-three and ninety-nine cents per cup, coffee made with Santo Coffee Cubes is substantially cheaper than anything a coffee shop can offer.

It is hard to imagine a simpler way to enjoy coffee. Santo Coffee Cubes let you skip the coffee shop line and the coffee machine, as well as reducing waste and saving time and money.

Solo Stove

Solo Stove Creates a Bright, Hot Fire, Minus the Smoke

For humans, fire has an almost magnetic quality. We love to coax it into life, feed it by hand, and gather around. But no one likes getting a face full of smoke.

The Solo Stove debuted a few years ago and quickly became a Kickstarter success. But the creators have not rested on their laurels. Since then they have released iterations on the original camp stove, so that anyone who loves a good cookout can enjoy a big or small bonfire, regardless of their space.

The newest versions of the Solo Stove are named Yukon and Ranger.

Solo Stove Yukon is for those with the space for a really big fire. At forty-five pounds, the Yukon is made to stay in one place, and it has a weatherproof cover to protect it from the elements wherever you choose to put it. It measures sixteen inches tall and thirty inches wide, and it has all the design technology that makes Solo Stoves unique.

That technology can be summed up in two words: double burn. It is the secret to the minimally smoky Solo Stove fire. The double wall heats up air, then pushes it out over the fire, creating a “secondary burn” that burns up the tiny wood particles before they can become smoke. In addition, the super efficient burning process burns wood into a very fine ash, so there is no wasted wood and virtually no mess to clean up.

Solo Stove Ranger was made with backyard patios and camping trips in mind. It is much smaller than the Yukon, weighing about fifteen pounds and measuring twelve and a half inches tall and fifteen inches wide. It uses the same double burn technology to keep smoke to a minimum and create a really beautiful fire.

Both Yukon and Ranger emit plenty of heat. Ranger distributes heat up to four feet away, while those enjoying Yukon can feel the warmth from as much as eight feet away. Both offer a no-mess, almost smoke-free way to enjoy a wood fire with friends and family.

Taste Plants

Taste Plants: A Breath Mint That Promotes Oral Health

Health benefits aren’t usually the first thing we think of when we think of breath mints. We want them to fix our bad breath fast, end of story. But maybe we should give the matter a little more thought. A lot of breath mints contain sugar, and sugar itself can cause bad breath by fermenting in the mouth – not to mention its leading role in tooth decay.

Taste Plants are a different kind of breath mint. They are breath mints that not only avoid the pitfalls of sugar, but actually pack a powerful oral-health punch. Their sweetener is a natural extract called xylitol, and it not only contributes a sweet, cooling flavor, but also helps build tooth enamel. When paired with plants, which add anti-microbial properties and truly natural flavor, xylitol makes for the perfect breath mint.

Taste Plants

Taste Plants come in three flavors (none of which are the grassy, rabbit-food flavors you might expect). The first, Matcha, Ginger, contains ginger oil, and has an earthy, warm flavor, with a little spice. The second, Orange, Cardamom, contains orange extract and has a bright, herbal flavor. The third, Rose, Lemon, Mint, contains rose extract, peppermint oil, and lemon extract, and has a cooling, zesty flavor.

Whichever flavor you choose, you can rest assured that far from damaging your oral health, Taste Plants will actually promote it. These are breath mints you can feel good about.

COBA: Your Favorite Pick-Me-Up in a Tasty, Snack-Size Bar

COBAA cup of coffee is not always as easy and fast to procure as one would like. When fatigue sets in, a quick pick-me-up requires either a trip to the coffee machine to brew it yourself or a trip to the coffee shop to pay someone else to brew it, and neither one is terribly time efficient. The creators of COBA have made coffee more portable than any mug or thermos, and faster than any kind of coffee you drink.

COBA is coffee you eat. It comes in two varieties: Milk and Dark. Despite the chocolate bar resemblance and names, COBA contains no cocoa. As the creators explain it, just as chocolate is made from cacao beans, COBA is made from coffee beans.

Each bar is equivalent to one cup of coffee, with 100 mg of caffeine. The Milk COBA bar contains some milk powder to make the taste a little more neutral for people who prefer diluted coffee. The Dark bar contains no milk powder and is therefore vegan. It has a stronger taste, ideal for those who like strong coffee.

The benefits of eating rather than drinking coffee are clear. With a bar you eat instead of a cup of liquid you drink, you rule out the possibility of spills. In the office, where expensive and company-owned electronics abound, this is particularly comforting.

COBA

You also save a lot of time and planning ahead. Actual coffee has to be temperature precise in order to be fully enjoyed, so the anywhere-anytime potential is minimal. COBA is as portable and as non-labor-intensive as a chocolate bar, and at 80 calories per Milk bar (the specs for the Dark bar are still being hammered out), you can enjoy COBA without guilt.

Prepd

Prepd: The Colorful Lunch Box That Makes Meal Prepping a Breeze

PrepdMeal prepping has become part of my daily routine. I wash, chop, and prepare vegetables and meats Sunday evening. During the week, I always pack a lunch before going to bed. Planning meals ahead of time allows you to cut back on spending, calories, and single-use plastic items. Prepd lunch boxes makes it easier to pack a healthy lunch while also offering a fun pop of color.

Each Prepd lunch box comes with several different food containers in various sizes. Each container is leak-proof and made with toxic-free materials. You can pack soups, sauces, and dressings without worrying about making a mess on the go.

Prepd containers also allow for easier portion control, a perfect tool for those watching their calorie intake. If you would like to use the containers just for leftovers, the containers stack perfectly on top of each other. Prepd containers leave your fridge perfectly organized.

The actual lunch box is pretty unique. Prepd has its own placemat integrated into the lunch box. Simply pull up the strap, open the lunch box, and flip the lid over. Containers fit securely into the box. Each lunch box also comes with a set of magnetic cutlery. You can pick up an insulation sleeve to carry your Prepd, along with a set of cool sticks for meals that need to be temperature-controlled.

Prepd’s companion app helps you find the perfect meal plan to fit your dietary needs. Once you’ve selected a meal plan, you can find recipes hand-selected by chefs and nutritionists. Then save your favorites and make a shopping list based on those meals.

Prepd

Each Prepd lunch box comes with the box itself, one large container, two small containers, and a set of cutlery. There is also a small container for dressings and sauces. Prepd comes in four different colors: blue, green, pink, and gray. You can also buy a separate package of just food containers.

Homemade lunches allow you to save some money while taking control of your calorie intake. Even if you aren’t looking to lose weight, Prepd is a fun and stylish way to prepare and package meals on the go.

CrunchCup

CrunchCup: Take Breakfast Back with Cereal on the Go

CrunchCupBreakfast might be the most important meal of the day, but it’s also the easiest one to skip. When multiple people in one household have to get to multiple locations clean, dressed, and on time, sometimes the most important meal of the day gets bumped to last place on the priority list. The CrunchCup was made with hectic mornings in mind.

In the frantic dash from bed to front door and all the stops in between, it’s hard to find time to sit down and do nothing but eat. Even cereal, that convenient and tasty breakfast food, requires a certain amount of time devoted to nothing but bowl and spoon. The CrunchCup is a way to eat cereal one-handed, leaving your other hand free to do something else (drive, corral kids, text, etc.).

The CrunchCup requires just as much preparation as a bowl of cereal, but it has this advantage: the preparation need not be the second before you eat it. Why? Because the cereal and the milk do not mix. Its cup within a cup design means that only when you raise CrunchCup to your lips does the milk hit the cereal, so that the mouthful of cereal from the CrunchCup is just like the mouthful from the bowl and spoon – only possibly better, since every bite will taste like the very first, when the cereal is at its crunchiest.

Whether it’s the night before or the morning of, it takes just a minute to prepare CrunchCup. Just pour your milk or milk alternative of choice into the large cup, then fill the smaller cup with your favorite cereal. Then screw on the smaller cup and lid so that the cereal cup is nested inside the larger cup.

Just like that, you have your breakfast in your hand. You just saved yourself time and frustration. And think what would happen if you equipped the entire family with CrunchCups. How much easier would the weekday morning be?

 

The Every Day Calendar Helps You Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

Every Day CalendarNew Year’s resolutions are kept so rarely that they have almost become a joke. And that’s too bad, because the idea was a good one. Everyone wants to change their lives for the better, in big or small ways, and what better time to start than at the start of a new year? The chief problems seem to be the lack of accountability, motivation, and follow-through. The Every Day Calendar was designed to create and encourage all three.

The Every Day Calendar combines the satisfaction of marking off successful days with a “gold star system” that offers a visual reward for every day you keep your resolution.

The psychology of motivation is complex, but the Every Day Calendar, in its wonderful simplicity, is a fun and intuitive way to harness it and use it to achieve your goals. The wall-mounted light up calendar consists of twelve columns, each labeled to represent a month, with either twenty-eight, thirty, or thirty-one buttons beneath each month. (You remember: “Thirty days have November, April, June, and September. February has twenty-eight alone, and all the rest have thirty-one.”)

The process is so intuitive little more needs to be said. Every day you keep your resolution, whether it’s going for a bike ride or meditating or brushing twice, you press the button corresponding to that day and watch it light up. Stand back from the wall, and you can see your progress. At the end of the year, you will have the satisfaction of seeing your entire Every Day Calendar aglow, a testament to your willpower.

Every Day Calendar

With a tangible way to gauge your progress, you can fight the feelings of apathy and powerlessness that are the doom of any New Year’s resolution and set yourself a realistic goal whose achievement you can watch day by day. And since the Every Day Calendar does not require an app or WiFi, anyone can use it, including the smartphone-averse.

And in case you’re worrying that the first thunderstorm will knock out your power and all your progress marked by the light up buttons will be lost – don’t. The Every Day Calendar will keep track of which buttons you have pushed even in the absence of electricity, and when power returns, so will your progress, mounted on the wall and lit up for all to see.

Candy Cane

The Candy Cane: A Sweet Travel Pillow That Keeps You Rested on the Go

Candy Cane It’s difficult to take a nap while on a flight or during a car ride. Let’s be honest. Most travel pillows are simply exhausting. They can be bulky, take too long to inflate, or are made with flimsy materials that won’t last long.

Candy Cane is the first compact and modular travel pillow. Travelers can use the Candy Cane pillow in 20 different ways. Once the pillow is inflated you can adjust the pillow to your liking and strap it together. The Candy Cane can be used in flights, car rides, camping trips, at the office, or really anywhere you’d like.

When you are ready to use the Candy Cane, simply inflate the pillow manually or using any air conditioning vent. It pops up in no time with minimal effort. When you aren’t using the pillow, it deflates and easily folds down for easy travel. Candy Cane offers 360 degrees of neck support, so you’ll never have to worry about waking up at your destination with a crick in your neck.

Each Candy Cane pillow is made with durable and soft materials. The special polymer inner lining is soft to the touch and won’t irritate your skin. The material is breathable and wicks away all moisture, so you’ll never get caught sweating during a flight. You can also wash your Candy Cane cover.

Traveling can be stressful. Tossing a Candy Cane pillow in your suitcase will ensure that you get enough rest to actually have fun when you arrive at your destination, without a headache or sore neck.
