Smartfood Has Doritos Nacho Cheese Popcorn

Another day, another new Smartfood popcorn flavor. The brand recently released Cinnamon Sugar Cupcake and Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut varieties, but has decided to go a more savory route with its latest release. Behold! The new Smartfood Doritos Nacho Cheese Popcorn.

As if a new flavor wasn’t already noteworthy enough, the fact that Smartfood has joined forces with Frito-Lay’s Doritos makes it that much better. So you’ll get the texture of popcorn, but the finger-licking goodness of Doritos Nacho Cheese. You can get the 17-ounce bag exclusively at Sam’s Club for $5.28, and the limited-edition snack will only be available through April 2022.

“There are people out there who would keep you and your beloved popcorn totally separate from Doritos. We are not those people,” reads the back of the bag.

Keith Urban is expanding on his Keith Urban Live 

Las Vegas residency dates. Taking place ahead of his previously-announced Memorial Day Weekend Vegas shows, Urban’s five new dates will happen in late March and early April at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace.

Urban’s shows at the Colosseum have been happening on and off since late 2019, when he helped re-open the Colosseum with two shows billed as an extension of his Graffiti U Tour. Those turned out to be a precursor of a longer engagement, and Urban played four residency dates in Vegas in January 2020 before announcing 12 more dates scheduled for later on that year.

The newly-announced dates are March 25, 26 and 30 and April 1 and 2. Tickets go on sale on Monday, Jan. 31 at 10AM PT

You Can Own Garth’s Mirthmobile Pacer Car From ‘Wayne’s World’ As It’s Up For Auction

Garth’s quirked-up, modified coupe became just as much an icon as the movie itself. The Mirthmobile, as it’s called, notably makes its most legendary appearance in the “Bohemian Rhapsody” car karaoke scene.  The 1976 Pacer coupe contains a 258 cubic-inch 6-cylinder under the hood. Features like the mismatched chrome spoked wheels and licorice dispenser are still intact, as well as its welded tow hooks. What’s been added, however, is a stereo system with 10-inch speakers, making it ready for some more enhanced rocking out.

As far as price the car is taking bids with no reserve. Based on the Pacer’s tie to pop culture history, we’re sure the final selling price will be significant.

Fake Whiskey Is More Common Than You Think

“We’ve had fans from across the U.S. contact us to tell us they’ve been duped,” explained Mary Tortorice – general counsel for Sazerac, the company that owns Buffalo Trace.

The NYT reported, “The scammers are finding fertile ground. ‘Luxury bourbon’ was once an oxymoron; now, it’s the hottest thing in whiskey.”

“Part of the problem is the culture I see around bourbon, where it is about bragging rights and being able to Instagram a bottle you just bought,” said Adam Herz – a Hollywood writer and producer who is best known for creating the American Pie franchise. “Most people I see ending up with fakes are partly to blame themselves. Any good con man knows how to take advantage of someone’s greed.”

Herz told Inside Edition, “$380 for a single bottle. Why? Because that bottle can be refilled and sold for way over $2,000.”
