Canada Watermelon La Croix Is the Best/Worst Flavor of La Croix
Daisy Ridley Says There Were Plans to Make Rey Related to Obi-Wan Kenobi (Video)
It often feels like we'll never run out of fascinating behind-the-scenes stories about the five "Star Wars" films that Disney has produced thus far. The latest of these comes from Daisy Ridley, who played the main character of the new numbered Disney trilogy. The status of Rey's backstory was always strange, but Ridley made it clear on Tuesday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" that it was a bit stranger than we realized. Josh Gad, who was guest hosting in place of Kimmel on Tuesday, asked Ridley about when she found out that Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) was Rey's secret grandfather. And Ridley provided a complicated answer.
Earlier this summer I encountered previously unfamiliar bricks in the wall ofat my corner bodega. There were pastel pink and green boxes adorned with the word Pastèque, and the smaller parenthetical (watermelon). Watermelon La Croix?
At that moment, I heard the words of a similar, French-Canadian icon, Céline Dion, echo in my brain: “” she asked.
“Yes, Céline,” I thought, “We shall.”
‘Black Widow’ Pondering Release Date Move; ‘Soul’ Could Still Stay Theatrical
Not everyone is ready to go back to theater, and it’s going to take a long time before moviegoers are comfortable. Warner Bros.’ domestic box office for Tenet, which only made $6.7M in its second stateside weekend (technically 3rd) is an indicator of this, of course, with New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco closures being a further stumbling block. As such, exhibition sources tell us that Disney is pondering a theatrical release date move for Black Widow off its Nov. 6 date. There’s no concrete idea of where it goes, whether its somewhere in December or next year yet. It could easily move to Marvel’s The Eternals release date of Feb. 12 next year.
When I got home I cracked open a can and took a sip. “Wait a second, I know this,” I said to myself before locking eyes with a now-corporeal Céline, “Yes, It’s all coming back to me now!” we cried out together.
Theon the bank teller’s desk, the pillowcase full of candy, that time I almost choked on one in the back seat of our Sienna. Yes, this tastes just like a Watermelon Jolly Rancher! Or...does it?
While most midwesterners have been pulling the lightly essenced La Croix (which rhymes with enjoy, according to the company) from their garage bonus fridges since the 1980s, the Wisconsin brand hit it big in 2015 as its multicolored, abstract expressionist packaging and “not-soda-ness” made it the millennial beverage du jour.
Bunch Raises $20 Million From Ubisoft, Electronic Arts to Expand Video Chat Gaming App
A startup called Bunch has raised $20 million to continue work on an app that lets people play games over video chat. Based in New York City, Bunch has raised roughly $28 million since its 2017 launch, according to funding tracker PitchBook Data Inc. The company will use the funding to develop ways for its software to be integrated into new and more popular multiplayer games and expand its marketing in an effort to grow its user base. The funding round was led by Boston-based venture firm General Catalyst, a new investor in Bunch.
This year, La Croix added two new flavors to their lineup: Limoncello and Pastèque (watermelon). The former tastes like lemon and vanilla, and reminds me somewhat of Carmex lip balm, but in a good way. The watermelon, meanwhile, has quickly become a new favorite. It’s punchy and a little sour, but not cloying. There is definitely a touch of Watermelon Jolly Rancher there, but like most La Croix flavors, it presents itself more as a memory on the tongue than a full blown flavor. Drinking watermelon La Croix is like staring at a watermelon-shaped neon sign; it is like tasting water harvested from a spring haunted by a watermelon ghost. It is an excellent drink for the still-hot days of fall.
Not everybody feels this way about watermelon La Croix. A friend of mine who is currently working her way through every La Croix flavor said it was the absolute worst she has ever tasted. My coworker Joe, meanwhile, shares my enthusiasm. Many have compared it to coconut, as one of the more divisive La Croix flavors on shelves.
The best and worst fictional teachers
School is back in session, in one form or another. For teachers, these are not easy times, especially for the good ones. In Hollywood, television and movie fans have been introduced to some beloved teachers we wish we could have had in class and others who we're glad to have avoided.
So, will you be among the watermelon La Croix lovers? Will you think it tastes too much like watermelon Jolly Rancher, or just Jolly Rancher enough? Will you find it crisp and refreshing, or cheaply artificial? Why does the company use the French word for Watermelon to name the flavor if they openly rebuke the French pronunciation of La Croix?
I can’t tell you those things, because my experience is not your experience. The truth to these questions is between you, the can of La Croix in your hand, and Céline Dion.
The Last Months Of A Canadian Who Died Of COVID-19 In ICE Custody .
Months after James Hill was supposed to be released from U.S. prison and reunited with his family in Canada, he died alone of COVID-19 in American immigration custody, hooked up to a ventilator and unable to speak. The former doctor from Newmarket, Ont. was caught in a torrent of events outside his control — immigration delays, the coronavirus pandemic and irresponsible actions on the part of American officials. “He thought he was going to be free,” Hill’s daughter Verity told HuffPost Canada from her Toronto home. “I can’t stop thinking that he was ultimately given a death sentence. It’s injustice on top of injustice.
