With two Girl Scouts here at Rock Father™ HQ (a Daisy and a Junior), it feels like we just finished Girl Scout Cookie season... and maybe we did. But in just a few months, it's all going to be ramping up once more and for 2019 the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) will team up with the DC Super Hero Girls to inspire more girls to participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program in the world. Announced jointly by Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment alongside the GSUSA, this new collaboration will foster the female leaders of tomorrow through the 2019 Cookie Pro contest. Using the power of the DC Super Hero Girls, the contest will inspire Girl Scouts to be smart and courageous as everyday Super Heroes. It will also highlight and reward exceptional cookie bosses who take the lead, set high goals for themselves, bring positive change to their communities, and learn valuable entrepreneurial skills. Get the full details via the official announcement below...
Craft sodas are big business, and when it comes new exploring new opportunities that rock, Gene Simmons is there. The serial entrepreneur, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and co-founder of KISS, America's Number One Gold Record Award-Winning Group of all time (RIAA), has announced the launch of a premium soda line called Money Bag™ Sodas. They're hitting retail this month in cooperation with Niagara Falls, New York-based Rock Steady Sodas Inc. (a subsidiary of Johnnie Ryan Bottling Company). The Money Bag Sodas line includes cola, diet cola, root beer and ginger ale, and the makers promise that additional flavors are in the works, along with a line of premium fountain sodas.
It's Pumpkin Spice Season. As Starbucks preps to unleash this year's supply of the official beverage of fall, I've already done my first "pumpkin-everything" haul for 2018... sadly, a few days later than usual as it appears my local retailers were slacking in terms of stocking the seasonal goods this time around. But who says that humans should have all the fun? Now, thanks to twitter, I know that Greenies is serving up a Limited Edition batch of Pumpkin Spice Greenies - a worthy treat for all the canines in the house!
Tony Rigatoni and Linda Linguine are certified pasta enthusiasts. At least, that's what I gather since their names were on the first cards issued as part of the next evolution in Olive Garden's headling-making "Never Ending Pasta Pass." That's right, the O.G. (as my wife still calls it) is redefining "unlimited" by extending the Never Ending Pasta Pass to a year-long affair. 1,000 superfans now have the opportunity to buy an exclusive Annual Pasta Pass for $300. The first-of-its-kind Annual Pasta Pass includes 52 weeks of unlimited servings of guests' favorite pastas, homemade sauces and toppings, accompanied by unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks. Somewhere, I imagine that WWE Superstar Virgil is lining up for a pass...
We love our food. We especially love our food when it's part of a promotional special that gives it away for free. It also helps that there's an informal holiday for almost anything imaginable. Many of them revolve around food, which makes America really excited.
Fast food restaurants may not be seen as inherently romantic, but one popular chain continues to prove it's got a place in the wedding industry. In fact, it's convinced a lot of couples to say "yo quiero" in addition to "I do."
Last February, Taco Bell announced that it would offer the option of hosting weddings at its Las Vegas flagship Cantina location. At the time, it seemed more like a kooky marketing stunt to promote the two-story store on the Strip, complete with alcoholic drinks and themed merchandise. But it now looks like couples actually want to tie the knot there. Although 33% of weddings take place in a religious institution, Taco Bell might as well be a house of worship for many young people. In fact, the Las Vegas Cantina location has welcomed 60 couples to make their partnerships official in the last year. Throughout 2017, the restaurant hosted an average of more than one wedding per week. They've got another 25 in the works already over the next year. One couple traveled all the way from China just to be married at the Cantina.
Americans love convenience: it's no surprise that this fondness for accessibility would work its way into our favorite restaurants. Florida has embraced this concept with open arms, following the lead of other states who have jumped on the bandwagon: using food halls.
But this is no cafeteria; these food halls have sprung up in major cities across the country, including the likes of Chicago, New York City, Detroit, Seattle, and even Chapel Hill in North Carolina.

With summer in full swing, we've entered the big summer movie season both in theaters and at home. For regular readers, it should be no secret that we're big movie fans, and while the traditional cinema experience can be a cool break from the hot summer temperatures, our family loves going to the drive-in, and we also love showing movies in our backyard theater right here at home. Backyard movies are a great way to bring the neighborhood together, and depending on what you're showing, it can also lend itself to some fun themes. Since Sony Pictures Animation's Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation is arriving in theaters on July 13, here's five essentials for throwing a Hotel Transylvania double-feature to get re-acquainted with how the story of Dracula and Mavis began. You'll be all caught up before Drac's pack sets sail on a monster cruise ship helmed by a Captain who holds a mysterious secret that could threaten them all!
A memorable backyard barbeque isn't complete without the smell of tangy barbeque sauce on the breeze, but A1 Steak Sauce had the genius idea of bringing it into your living room when they announced three new meat-inspired candle scents.
Just in time for Father's day, the sauce company released three limited edition candles on a special site inspired by the food their sauce improves: "Original Meat," "Backyard BBQ," and the elegantly put "Burger."
This morning, I received an email that had started off with a very true statement: "Whether you're a true Phish fan or not, you've tried Ben & Jerry's classic flavor, Phish Food." I have, and I love it so much that at one point it was my favorite flavor from the Ben & Jerry's lineup, despite my not being a Phish Phan at all. Now, Ben & Jerry's has partnered with Phish for a third flavor to celebrate the 21st anniversary of The WaterWheel Foundation. It's Ice... Cream features a caramel malt ice cream with almond toffee pieces, fudge fish and a caramel swirl and was one of the original flavor concepts in the running back in 1997, to become Phish Food. Luckily, Ben & Jerry's Flavor Gurus never lose sight of a good flavor concept and have brought it to pints. A portion of all proceeds will benefit The WaterWheel Foundation.
It’s been nearly a year since I started The xB Mission - an idea that I could take what had been becoming an “old” car and start to reverse the process as its age begins inching toward “classic.” I special-ordered this car new, and I took delivery in June of 2004. 14 years and 160,000+ miles later, my Scion xB and I have a special relationship… like Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon, Michael Knight and K.I.T.T., The Lone Ranger and Silver. This ride and I have been through a lot together, and this year there will be more. What you can’t see in the picture above is that the whole family is there. My wife is snapping the photo, while our daughters are behind tinted glass in the back seat. While I’ve driven many vehicles over the years, it was my wife who once said “you’re synonymous with that car,” and in many ways that was the deciding factor to keep it rolling. Another thing that I’m known for? My beverage of choice: Mountain Dew Voltage. I’ve enjoyed thousands of them, and one of my favorites exclusive at Circle K on fountain is - Voltage Polar Pop® cup!
