Ooo. For me, I think I'd also like to make the brown sugar one first โ€“ย but then pull a @sophiamor and dip it in toasted almonds ;D
The mocha one looks beautiful! I would try to make that one but dip it in almonds like the other recipe suggested :)
@danidee I'm so excited to actually try to make these! I don't have all the supplies I need yet but the vietnamese ones are actually first on my list.
Vietnamese iced coffee pops sound right up my alley. That and the brown sugar one. I've been using brown sugar in my teas and coffee instead of regular white sugar for some time lately and it's so good. I can only imagine how it'd be in a pop.
@sophiamor Yes!! That's the second one I'm going to try, I think. I still need to go shopping though. But it's too hot to shop, and then it's hot so I want to eat them, but I haven't shopped! I can't win!

The Christmas Latte to Rule Them All
I've talked about this cafe before, and I'll talk about it again. All That Sweets is hands down my favorite dessert cafe on Earth. Watch my video review here or read below^^ Today I went alone so I passed on a slice of the strawberry shortcake but look how adorable is it! Their cakes are always light and creamy, though the flavors change daily! I've seen chocolate, vanilla, and even kiwi cakes. Instead I opted for one of their amazing macarons. Because I came late in the day, my only option was the chocolate raspberry "merry xmas" heart macaron, but I probably would have chosen that anyway. These flavors also vary with the season but every single one I've ever tried has been absolutely delicious. But of course, the star of the show is my Christmas Tree Latte <3 Their lattes are amazingly intricate, and they have a dozen of them on the menu at all times. The homemade (delicious) whipped cream is covered in melted chocolate, sprinkles, and meringue cookies. I seriously thought I hated meringue until I tried these babies. Now I can't get enough! They sell these for the month of December, and then usually move on to make snowflake or other winter themed lattes. All year 'round they offer rose, raincloud, and even coral styled lattes! This year they also introduced a gingerbread man latte that I was tempted to get, but I had to stick to my traditional tree :) You can also find me here: Tumblr Instagram Twitter Facebook SnapChat: cari.cakez
You Can Drop These 4 Costly Grocery Shopping Habits
The largest spending bucket in India belongs to groceries. According to our research, Indians spent Rs. 21,491 on this category in 2017-18, or 28% of total spending. To save money on a regular basis, some may try to be disciplined by sticking to a shopping list, making fewer trips or clipping coupons. For those who are particularly budget-minded, we've laid out 4 bad habits to drop if you truly want the most value out of shopping for your everyday necessities. Don't Go Grocery Shopping When You're Hungry Hunger is one of the most basic and intense feelings people can have, and such a sensation can easily throw you off your budget at the supermarket. Even when armed with a shopping list, hungry people can be prone to buying unnecessary items just because they want food so much more in the moment. To prevent this from happening, try going grocery shopping when you're relatively full. For example, grocery shopping after dinner can be a great way to take a stroll to and digest while preparing for the week ahead. Don't Be Loyal to Brands In the early 20th century, the key to success in business was making good products because reliable, high-quality production itself was difficult. Since the 1950s, however, consumer packaged goods companies like P&G have been building their global businesses by inundating consumers with advertising. Over time, consumers came to trust these brands to represent good quality, and they were willing to pay for the convenience of simplifying their shopping process by sticking with well-known products. However, blind brand loyalty isn't the best value shopping strategy in the modern era. First, some companies may charge higher prices for features that aren't actually necessary, like adding a fifth blade to your already sufficient razors. Second, production quality of alternative options has improved, and many of the generic brands sold by supermarkets are just as good as those sold by brand names. One can save significant money by forgoing flashy branded goods across many categories. Stop Paying With Cash Finally, unless you shop for groceries at cash-only marketplaces, always use a credit card when shopping for groceries. As most businesses do, supermarkets charge the same price whether you pay with a card or cash, and there are a number of credit cards in India that provide high rewards specifically on grocery spending. How much one can earn using a credit card depends on one's spending profile, but annual rewards could easily amount to thousands of rupees every year, which is essentially free money if you use your card responsibly. Always Check Your Receipt Most people have a tendency to just stuff the receipt into their bag or pocket after paying for their groceries. Or, they don't even take the receipt from the cashier. This is a bad habit that can actually lose you money over time. First, cashiers can mistakenly scan items twice, charging people for items they are not taking home. Second, sometimes cashiers fail to credit you with a sale or promotion, causing you to miss the discounts to which you're entitled. Therefore, it's advisable to at least glance over your receipt to make sure you paid the correct amount. This article originally appeared on ValueChampionโ€™s blog

How To Make Sex Coffee (Yup, it's a thing.)
Sex coffee is a thing. I'm not even kidding. Studies have shown that even on its own, drinking 2 cups of coffee a day can improve your sex life. Combine that with a few ancient superfoods, and you've got some truly sexy health benefits. Whether or not they actually make your bedroom activities more exciting... that's for you to find out. And report back, obviously. ;) What makes this coffee so sexy? Each ingredient has unique libido-boosting, stimulating properties that have been relied on since ancient times. Check it out: MACA: an Aztec root, usually ground into a powder. An adaptogen, it supports your body in creating the enzymes it needs to balance hormones and enhance fertility. It's often touted as an aphrodisiac, which can increase libido. CACAO: Raw cacao is a stimulant. It gets your blood pumping and triggers your body to release seratonin, which enhances mood. The Journal of Sexual Medicine published a study that found women who ate chocolate daily scored slightly higher on the Female Sexual Index, aka the chart that measures female sexual function. CINNAMON: Cinnamon promotes vital energy, keeping your body from that desire-sucking lag that can come after a busy day. HONEY: Honey may increase stamina, and has been shown to increase virility and fertility. COCONUT MILK: Many cultures have used coconut milk to naturally balance hormones and to increase sex drive. Full of healthy fats, coconut milk will give you energy for sex, without a nasty after-crash. (Source: YourTango) Are you ready to take the plunge and try it out yourself?
