Which is the best Haribo candy?

TwitterFacebook

It’s not just the bears. Friends, let us repeat: it’s not just the bears.

The (wonderful) world of Haribo is rife with unimaginably delicious, squishy, delightful candies … and a few duds. Such is the world of the sweet treat.

So we grabbed a bunch of Haribo candies available in the U.S. — FYI, some of the labels are in German because that was the deal at Economy Candy — tasted each, then judged away.

You may disagree with these rankings. That’s okay! It’s subjective. But if you catch yourself feeling angry, please promise us you’ll get yourself a packet of Haribo to make yourself feel better. Read more…

If you’re not excited after this ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ trailer then you’re clearly dead inside

TwitterFacebook

The Bellas are back and they’re finally college graduates. Which is to say: they’re buried in debt, desperate for work, and rapidly learning that music isn’t a sustainable career for most people.

Fortunately for them, this is the movies. Can’t get a job? NBD! Ditch everything, get the band back together, and give the troops a boost on a USO tour.

That’s the premise for Pitch Perfect 3, which is dubbed in this new trailer as the Bellas’ “farewell tour.” As if it’s up to anything other than the movie’s box office performance to make a decision like that.

Pitch Perfect 3 arrives in theaters on Dec. 22. Read more…

Twitter Moment shows exactly how devastating the GOP healthcare bill would be for one family

TwitterFacebook

Before the Senate votes on its bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, many people are sharing stories of how the bill would affect them. 

One story struck a chord with thousands of Twitter users this weekend. The mom of 3-year-old Ethan Vikash shared a photo of a medical bill for her son’s open heart surgery. The 24-line item bill came to $231,115 for 10 hours in surgery, one week in the hospital’s cardiac intensive care unit, and one week on the hospital’s cardiac floor. 

With insurance, Ethan’s family only had to pay $500 out-of-pocket. But if Congress passes a healthcare bill that imposes lifetime caps on what insurance companies will cover, families that deal with childhood illnesses or heart conditions like Ethan’s would be well beyond priced out of life-saving care.  Read more…
