Son's teeth are braces-free, hurrah! How to celebrate/cheer him up?

My 15-year-old son is getting his braces off. This means he can again indulge in some of his favourite snacks, especially popcorn and chewing gum. I want to celebrate and also cheer him up (he's been a bit glum lately)--already thinking of taking him to the cinema *just* for a big bag of MOVIE THEATRE popcorn, and putting together a care package of various brands of gum for his school locker, but other than that, I got nothing. Any ideas, mefites, for braces-themed jokes or treats, etc., that I can surprise him with for, say, a week? Even mild pranks might work (the equivalent of putting googly eyes on stuff, but braces/teeth themed)? He has a silly sense of humour. Thanks :)

PiƱata Filler!

I'm looking to fill a couple of pinatas, one for a wedding, one for a group of very outdoorsy people. Some candy is fine, but I want the majority of it to be a little more interesting. No alcohol or condoms. What are your thoughts?

Help me make a hopper and dispenser that won't clog and won't jam

I need to make a hopper leading down to an opening. Below the opening will be a wheel. Food will fall into the wheel from the hopper. The wheel will turn, causing the food to drop below. Essentially, this but smaller. I'm having two problems with the wheel and hopper design: clogging and jamming. Help me figure out how to shape the hopper and wheel openings to prevent these problems.

Shine, little glow stick, lead us away from allergenic treats!

I'm passing out glow sticks and glowy spiders in lieu of candy for Halloween. A Facebook friend posted a link to the Teal Pumpkin Project about kids with food allergies and Halloween treats. So, yay, my treats are allergy-safe! But my house is definitely NOT a pristine allergy-free zone. Will this be an issue? I don't want to inadvertently poison some poor trick-or-treater. [more inside]

Basically I'm looking for a hard treat or chew toy for humans.

Over Thanksgiving I discovered I really enjoy chewing on cinnamon sticks. The only problem is they can get brittle pretty fast, leading to a mouthful of fragments and a really unpleasant explosion of cinnamon in my mouth. So! I thought I can't be the only person that likes this... [more inside]

Making old bones new again

Homemade Easter gifts. 3...2...1... GO

Homemade Easter gifts. Preferably edible - my friends and family are, like me, wretchedly gluttonous fiends but prefer the not super-processed or over-sweet stuff, so if it's got token fruit or something in then even better. I just realised there's like a week to go and I have no idea what to make these people. HALP.

Dog training snags

Keep me busy so I don't keep you busy...

Fido is coming to visit the in laws with us at Christmas. We want to minimize his potential annoyance to others and boredom. What are the best treat dispensing smart busy toys for dogs? We have a kong and a jolly ball, but what else is out there? It needs to be durable and very difficult since Fido is too darn smart. He loves a good calf thigh stuffed with cheese, but the licking sounds he makes are a little too gross for public. He is around 50 pounds, so it needs to be for large breeds that are hard chewers. Thanks! [more inside]

I can't find liverwurst anymore!

Where can I score some old fashioned liverwurst in the Pacific Northwest? There always used to be rolls of liverwurst next to the lunch meats, but no more. And Amazon no longer carries Mother Goose Liverwurst; there's a "unknown when again available" note. Mail order is fine, if it's a reliable source. (And I really don't want to make it myself; I just want to smear it on bread.)

You can't get that from here.

Husband is going there for a few days in July, and we're trying to think of what treats he ought to bring back to New England - stuff we can't find here at home. Cactus Cooler soda and prickly pear jelly/candy are all I can think of. See's Candies would be wonderful, but would not travel well. Any other regional favorites? Thanks in advance!

Dog Treats

My dog loves dried sweet potato chews. They go for $20 a bag in the pet store even though the only ingredients are potatoes. It must be that I can make them at home for the cost of a potato.

clever ideas for a secret buddy

I'm looking for some clever ideas for treats for my ultimate frisbee "secret buddy." They need to be small (not much larger than a big candy bar) and inexpensive (~$5). I don't really know this person that well, but I would like to be more thoughtful than just slipping her a candy bar with a note saying "good luck!". I think puns are more than called for in this situation, especially if they relate to ultimate or geology.
