Amazon

Promising review: “These are actually pretty trippy! Once you let the pill dissolve in your mouth and you spread it around your taste buds are in for a ride. I gave it to my coworkers and they were all tripped out. I ate lemon and a lime like it was an apple. They were so sweet I imagined them to be like the fruits from the garden of Eden.

Or a salt shooter, which they can use to season their food or take down pesky bugs in the most satisfying way possible.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband and I’m not entirely sure that was a smart move on my part. Not because the product doesn’t work (it works very well, in fact) but because my husband is now intent on leaving the doors open to the house when summer comes back around so all kinds of bugs can be let in for him to kill. He’s already had the pleasure of being able to use it on a spider that was on an outdoor Christmas decoration and boy was he ecstatic! Since we seem to be in short supply of bugs in the house during these cold winter months, my husband has also resorted to using this gun as a way to add salt to food while he’s cooking. This product works, it kills bugs, and you can even use it while cooking if you’re tired of using the boring old salt shakers we have all grown accustomed too.” —Adrianna McCain

Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

30.
