Well, folks. It’s official. DREAMS. COME. TRUE.

If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with two things: hot dogs and frozen treats. I’m very likely the biggest hot dog fan this world has ever seen. I’m obsessed. I keep the Wienerschnitzel near my house in good business. And I can never say no to a sweet, frozen treat. It’s against everything I am, and it’s against everything I stand for.

Finally, a product has been released that I can’t help but believe was intentionally designed for yours truly. Oscar Mayer has officially launched the “Cold Dog,” a hot dog-flavored popsicle. It’s literally a frozen wiener popsicle on a stick, complete with mustard drizzle. At first, I thought this had to be a joke. I thought it was too good to be true. But, in fact, the two ultimate summer foods have come together to create, in my opinion, the coolest product ever.

According to People, the creation is a result of Oscar Mayer’s “Stupid or Genius” Instagram campaign, which set out to find all the “wonderfully odd” ways to enjoy the iconic wiener aside from just grilling. Thousands of fans voted that the hot dog popsicle was “genius.” With such positive feedback funneling in, Oscar Mayer teamed up with Popbar to bring the idea to frozen fruition. To those who dubbed this idea “genius,” I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The world has gone too long with out this powerhouse combo.

I do have some sad news… Unfortunately, the “cold dog” is only available at select Popbar locations in Long Beach, New York City, Atlanta and New Orleans. I need Oscar Mayer to bring the notorious Wienermobile to Las Vegas with a freezer full of these suckers. I can only hope they’ll be a massive hit and they expand to stores over on the west coast.

Perhaps I’ll just have to take a trip to one of the stocked Popbar locations. Because I can’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind treat. It’d be a crime.

20 Best Coffee Shops In Las Vegas

I think it’s safe to say that coffee is often a saving grace. And Las Vegas coffee shops have definitely helped us recover after a night out.

It’s truly the perfect beverage that’s available in multiple mediums. Hot, iced, sweet, bitter, frothy or blended; coffee can quench any type of caffeine craving.

Coffee is also a ritual for many of us, often signifying as the gong that starts our day. When we smell the brewing beans and hear the bubbling noise of the carburetor, memories are often pulled from the back of our minds about cornerstone moments in our lives.

Along with the memories and conversations that are associated with the amazing beverage, coffee is also symbol in many cultures. Whether it’s the brewing method or the type of beans being used, coffee — like most things — vary across the world.

There are four types of coffee beans: Arabica, Robusta, Liberica, and Excelsa. And according to, Arabica and Robusta are the most common and popular type of beans.

Arabica is known for having a smooth and complex flavor with a distinct lack of bitterness. Robusta, often associated with Vietnamese coffee, has a stronger and bolder flavor with a higher hint of bitterness laced within the coffee’s profile.

The other and less common coffee beans, Liberica and Excelsa, have different flavor notes and are grown in Africa and Asia.

According to CoffeeAffection, Liberica beans “has a controversial and polarizing reputation for wild inconsistency. Those who’ve tried this rare variety either love it or hate it.”

Some have described the flavor as nutty, woody and “burnt,” with a backbite.

Excelsa beans have qualities that are a mixture of light and dark roast traits. These beans have tart and fruity flavors with a lighter aroma. Yet, these beans still have a depth of flavor.

There’s also a science to the coffee brewing process that emphasizes and brings out certain flavors of the beans, which you can read more about here.

To celebrate our love of coffee, here are some of the best shops in Vegas.
