Here Are Creme Egg Cookies And Easter Grass Twizzlers Because Why Not

Have you always wanted to grab handfuls of the plastic grass in your Easter basket and chomp on it? Have you always secretly wished that Cadbury Creme Eggs came in a form that you could pass off as a normal dessert instead of a chocolate egg? The answer to both of those questions is probably “no,” but this is America, where progress marches on whether we want apple-flavored licorice grass or not.


You can see from this photo that the tipster who sent those Creme Eggs in to The Impulsive Buy had them in his cart, because this food is simply impossible to resist. That’s my theory, anyway.

Meanwhile, over in the candy aisle, Twizzlers has introduced green “Easter grass” flavored licorice ropes, because regular Twizzlers are not gross enough as it is.

Time Out Chicago opened up a bag of this stuff, and the individual strands are loose, making it resemble plastic Easter grass to a disturbing extent. You could use this to line a child’s Easter basket, but I’m not sure that anyone would want to eat it after it sat out, which in turn defeats the point of using edible Easter grass in the first place.


Wait, I thought green apples went with candy apples to form one of the official flavors of fall! These holiday mashups are too much to bear.

If Disney Princesses Were Historically Accurate

What would your favorite Disney princesses have actually looked like IRL?


Watch these models transform into historically accurate Disney princesses:


View Video ›


Disney creates fictional worlds for their princesses to live in, drawing on historical and mythical inspiration to create beautiful fairy tales. We wondered what the princesses would’ve looked like if they’d existed in the real world, so we used context clues from the films to determine, as specifically as possible, the time and location of each Disney princess’s story.


*based on the Disney films, not the original source material.

Jasmine, Aladdin — c. 300s Arabian Peninsula


Jasmine, Aladdin — c. 300s Arabian Peninsula


CONTEXT CLUES:

“Salaam,” an Arabic greeting, is used several times.

• The opening song, "Arabian Nights," is pretty clear about where this story takes place.

• When Genie makes over Aladdin into Prince Ali, he says, “First, that fez and vest combo is much too third century,” making it seem like Aladdin must take place in at least the fourth century A.D.
