Hostess Shamrock CupCakes!

Whether it's by guzzling Guinness at your favorite local pub, laughing at Leprechaun 4: In Space, or consuming a Cookie O'Puss cake from Carvel, I hope you're all enjoying your Saint Patrick's Day celebrations today!

Speaking of all things green, we just learned that our upcoming game, GRAVE CHASE, was Greenlit on Steam, exactly one month to the day from when we first put it up on there! Thanks so much to all of you who voted for it, left comments, and helped spread word about the game on social media. We couldn't have done it without your support. The game itself is basically done, so now all we have to do is finishing adding in all the requirements to get it up on Steam, along with adding in their SDK stuff like virtual trading cards and achievement medals. Once we're done with that process, I'll announce an official release date. Can't wait for all of you to play Grave Chase, and see if you can survive all 31 days of October in the Groundskeeper's graveyard!

Hostess Shamrock CupCakes for Saint Patrick's Day!

It would seem that luck of the Irish is indeed on my side at the moment, because I also managed to track down a box of the new Hostess Shamrock CupCakes! I love mint-flavored desserts in general, and I used to eat these cupcakes by the truckload back in the day, so the new Saint Patrick's Day ones were right up my alley. The box is covered in three-leaf clovers (I guess the cupcakes themselves are supposed to serve as a lucky four-leaf clover), a leprechaun's hat, and a green color-scheme. That "limited edition" emblem makes me think of the Silver Shamrock company. I sure hope eating these doesn't make my head explode with snakes and bugs.

I gotta say, they really did these limited edition Shamrock cupcakes justice. The cupcakes themselves look exactly like they do on the box - a light green icing on top, along with a mint creme filling inside. The mint flavoring is just right; not so strong that it overpowers everything, and not so subtle that you can barely taste it. They're absolutely worth picking up if you can find them in your grocery store. Now I just gotta go pick up a Shamrock Shake to help wash 'em down.

Lastly, I have to ask: Do any of you peel the icing off the top of your Hostess CupCakes and eat it first too, or is it just me?
