Glendale, California, October 2016—Ghosts and goblins notwithstanding, there is nothing like candy to hold together (and make even more fun) a special event like Halloween. And Nestlé’s Butterfinger line is making its play to ensure everyone has a shot at the new goodness they’ve come up with.

They are introducing a devilishly delicious treat this fall with called Peanut Butter Cups Molded Skulls, a #BolderThanBoo addition to the candy aisle this Halloween season. Now hitting store shelves for the first time, the BUTTERFINGER® Peanut Butter Cups Skulls take on the terror-ific new molded skull shape, with a “crispety, crunchety” burst of bold peanut buttery flavor and smooth milk chocolate coating. (Note: “crispety” and “crunchety” may not be actual English words, but in this case, they’ll do nicely.)

Helsinki, Finland, November 2016—VTT, a Finnish research center, has developed a solution for converting small sources of methane-rich biogas into raw materials for animal feed or bioplastic on farms, landfills and wastewater treatment plants. The emission-reducing solution is based on ability of a certain kind of bacteria to grow on methane in gas fermentors.

Methane-rich biogas is generated worldwide on farms, landfills and wastewater treatment plants in anaerobic digestion of biological material. Until now, the processing of such gas into biomethane has only been viable on large biogas-producing sites; small biogas sources such as farms have remained largely unexploited.

Certain foods can give your gut an instant bloat that looks and feels awful. However, there is a solution to this dilemma. Instead of skipping dinner to squeeze into your little black dress, or grabbing bagels for a quick morning bite, there are ways to get around this tight spot (if you’ll excuse the pun,) by incorporating a belly bloat buster or two.
