Razer is launching its own chewing gum

With “mental performance boosting” properties

Published

Razer’s dedicated foray outside of gaming paraphernalia is well-documented. Since the official announcement of Razer’s toaster, the company has released its own SUV, vending machine, and Pokémon-themed earbuds. Now, the company is investing on things you can put in your mouth. Razer is launching its own chewing gum.

If you’re in the particular subset of humanity that chews gum while playing games, Razer now has the perfect gum for you. Partnering with Mars Wrigley’s 5 Gum, the new Respawn by 5 promises more than just something to chew on.

The “mental performance boosting” gum contains B vitamins and green tea extract to supposedly keep you alert while gaming. For health-conscious gamers, it is also sugar-free and only has five calories per piece.

Though the gum itself is black in color, it comes in three flavors: Cool Mint, Pomegranate Watermelon, and Tropical Punch. You can purchase ten packs (or 150 pieces) for US$ 27.99 through Razer’s website. A single 15-piece pack retails for US$ 2.99.

For eagle-eyed Razer fans, the Respawn branding is a familiar one. Last year, Razer also launched a “mental performance” drink mix with the same name. As with the gum, the drink touts increased mental focus and playing performance while gaming.

Of note, Razer has committed to more lifestyle-oriented products in recent years. For its part, 5 Gum is itself a familiar brand. The brand is most known for its tagline: “How It Feels to Chew 5 Gum.”

Animal Crossing is launching a ColourPop makeup collection

Featuring your favorite characters

Published

on

Despite a full slate of exciting games last year, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was one of the most influential games of 2020. The island life simulator allowed everyone stuck at home to connect with another despite the pandemic. However, even with the gameplay, the game is just so darn cute. If you wholeheartedly agree (and why wouldn’t you?), Nintendo is collaborating with ColourPop for an Animal Crossing-themed makeup collection.

In its announcement post on Twitter, Nintendo unveiled four color palettes in the collection. The forefront of the collection features Isabelle’s yellow complexion and her cute-as-a-button pink top. If you’re looking for something more inspired, Blathers and Celeste have their own color palette featuring combination of their colors. For the stylish, the Able Sisters shine in purple and lilac. If, however, you’re looking for capitalist chic, Tom Nook has his own palette featuring his cash-money green.

The Animal Crossing x ColourPop collection will launch on January 28. Though only four palettes were showcased, the collection might include further characters. Besides the main characters around your island, the game also has a wide variety of cute potential villagers.
