This Back-to-School feature is brought to you in partnership with Costco and General Mills #CostcoBoxTops 

Like so many, I'd seen those Box Tops for Education tabs on product packaging for years, never realizing what a big deal they were until my wife and I actually had kids in school ourselves. For the past 20 years, General Mills has been supporting education and America's schools through a very simple program: Clip the box tops from specially-marked products, submit them to your child's school (or a school you support), and each will be counted as 10¢, with participating schools able to earn up to $20,000 cash per year (no maximum annual earning limits for schools earning eBoxTops or Bonus Box Tops) to use on important supplies. This year, Costco is making it even easier to rack-up the Box Tops fast, by creating specially-marked packages that come with 8 additional Box Tops plus a code that can be redeemed at CostcoBoxTops.com for a shot at winning the Golden Box Tops Challenge and scoring one of 3,000 Box Tops Prize Packs - each containing 100 eBoxTops... that's $10 for your school, and all the earnings come from products you were already going to buy anyway. It's a win-win for all, and it's easy!

Last month, we had a chance to sample an early batch of Thomas' Salted Caramel English Muffins and Bagels - the latest limited-edition flavor offering from the folks at Thomas'. I took them up to a lake house we were staying at in Wisconsin, serving them up as part of breakfast for our entire crew, and as expected - they were delicious. Salted Caramel is one of the latest flavor trends to really take off after building steam over the past few years, and while a few people have indicated to me that they expect it to challenge Pumpkin in the years ahead, I say that's foolish. As a pumpkin enthusiast, I can tell you that nothing will ever overcome the mighty gourd as The King of Fall! Compliment it, sure... and with chunks of Salted Caramel baked right in, these new offerings from Thomas' are really good - available through early October. Then it's Pumpkin Spice time!

It's #GhostbustersWeek...

Hi-C Ecto Cooler (1987-2001, 2016-?) is an absolutely legendary beverage. Back in the late 1990s, when I met the girl who would eventually become my wife, I would drink Ecto Cooler seemingly by the gallon, right alongside another creation of The Coca-Cola Company - SURGE. Following the triumphant, fan-led return of the latter beverage back in 2014, Ecto Cooler officially started hitting the streets again this past May, the idea being that the drink, spawned from the success of THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS cartoon series (Slimer once adorned the packages) and which maintained a preseence on store shelves nearly a decade past its run, would once again reign supreme as audiences prepared for the release of Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS: ANSWER THE CALL on July 15th. Indeed, Ecto Cooler is back! But can you find it?

This #RockFathersDay #DadHacks adventure is brought to you by Chuck E. Cheese's. The Rock Father has been friends with Charles for a very, very long time...

Father's Day, or Rock Father's Day™ as it's known around here, is June 19th, and as everyone gears up for the annual round of "What Dad Really Wants...," I can tell you that what I want is very simple: time with my family, and fun. While my perfect Father's Day is a pretty low-key affair in which I like to hang out at home and spend some time in the yard, I'm all for a little detour to one of the kids' favorite places, which just so happens to be one of my favorite places... a place "Where A Kid Can Be A Kid," or where a big kid can still be a kid because he's never really grown up, but he happens to have kids of his own now. It's in that spirit of family fun that my friends at Chuck E. Cheese's are celebrating dads this year, serving-up some exclusive Father's Day offers that everyone can enjoy. Ticket Blaster for Dad? A chance to win a trip to Great Wolf Lodge? Read on, friends...

When you think of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, certain elements tend to stand out more than others, and one of those things is Pizza! Ask any kid to tell you what a Ninja Turtle eats, and it's pretty much guaranteed that they'll only be able to give you one answer. Over the years, there have been many cross-promotional TMNT pizza tie-ins, with a Domino's driver appearing in the 1990 film, a mention of Pizza Hut in the 2014 film, and even frozen pizzas sold on the East Coast by Ellio's that were TMNT-branded. First-released last fall as a tie-in for the hit Nickelodeon TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES series, Wicked Cool Toys' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pizza Oven lets kids made their own, personal, snack-sized pizzas pretty-much from scratch!
