1. Just when you thought it wasn't possible to make ice cream any cooler, a physicist has to go and prove you wrong. Manuel Linares has taken ice cream to the next level by making it change colors when you lick it. The chilly sweet stuff is called Xamaleón, tastes like tutti frutti (ooh, we hope it's sour!) and changes from periwinkle blue to pink when it comes in contact with your tongue. It's almost hypercolor ice cream!

2. You know what sucks about living in Florida? The heat. Even worse? The oven your car turns into when it sits for any length of time.

4. Dominique Ansel is well-known in the food world for creating some pretty awesome concoctions. I mean, he invented the cronut and started a foodie revolution. Well, his latest creation is a peanut butter pretzel lobster tail. Served with a honey brown butter dip, these would make a fantastic afternoon snack. And if that's not cool enough, last weekend, he was selling canned sundaes in the Hamptons last weekend. They're freaking adorable, look:

5. This one's a little bit slow to start, but you'll be amazed when you see how much these cows enjoy a trombone version of Lorde's Royals.
