Are Halloween Ice Cream Flavors of Blood Pudding and Chocolate Covered Crickets a Little Much?

If you love ice cream, you likely get all sorts of excited when a company comes out with a new flavor. Even if it's just vanilla mixed with something equally yummy. I thought when Jimmy Fallon hosted "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" and Ben & Jerry's came out with "Late Night Snack", featuring potato chip clusters, was a huge stretch. I have to say, though, I was pretty impressed. Well, just in time for Halloween, an ice cream chain on the west coast called Salt & Straw just created two new ice cream flavors. One that's made with BLOOD...and one that's made with INSECTS. The Dracula Blood Pudding flavor offers actual pig's blood with a "hint of chicken liver" mixed in with a spiced ice cream.

Williams and McAuliffe

Michelle Williams to Play Christa McAuliffe In New Movie Called ‘The Challenger’

January 28, 1986, a day that, if you were alive, you will never forget. Almost 33 years ago, millions of people across the Nation watched as Space Shuttle "Challenger" exploded 73 seconds after launching from Cape Canaveral, killing all seven on board. Christa McAuliffe was a social studies teacher at Concord High who was selected to join NASA’s Teacher in Space Project, and had been planning to conduct experiments and teach lessons from the Space Shuttle Challenger. McAuliffe spent a year training for the flight, becoming a national media favorite in the process thanks in large part to her enthusiasm for spaceflight and learning of all persuasions. A new movie named 'The Challenger' is in the works centered around the life of McAuliffe and it's been confirmed that Michelle Williams has won the part to play the beloved teacher. Williams has been nominated for Academy Awards for "Brokeback Mountain," "Blue Valentine," "My Week With Marilyn,” and “Manchester by the Sea.” She recently starred in “All the Money in the World,” “I Feel Pretty,” and will be in this weekend's superhero movie, "Venom." Production is expected to start in May. McAuliffe's lessons are not lost, as astronauts are still using her experiments today. She recorded her exercises prior to launch as a tool for teachers to use in the classroom while she was in space.
