Say hello to yourself while eating with the first selfie spoon

Finally, it’s here, the selfie accessory no one’s been waiting for.

In a promotional stunt for Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, maker General Mills has launched the Selfie Spoon that helps you take a photo of yourself eating your first meal of the day. Because you really want to do that.selfie spoon

With tongue so firmly in cheek it’s at risk of causing painful bruising, the selfie spoon, as its name suggests, is basically a selfie stick with a spoon on the end.

To be clear – this is a real device and can be yours for the cost of shipping and handling (that’s right, the Selfie Spoon itself is free).

According to its webpage, the stick extends to 30 inches (76.2 cm) and incorporates a remote shutter button as well as the all-important spoon. The page also includes a number of “self-monials” (their term, not ours) showing satisfied users of the Selfie Spoon chomping on their Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.

“Gone are the days of eating a delicious breakfast and all your friends not knowing about it,” the YouTube ad proclaims, adding, “So why choose between eating and posting? With the Selfie Spoon, you can do both.”

Sunday’s batch of Selfie Spoons has already sold out, but if you’re desperate to get your hands on one, fear not. More will be available in the coming days, the cereal maker promises.

Hurry! This DJI drone just had its price slashed to $300
The DJI Mini 2 SE drone in flight.

Getting a dependable drone made by arguably the most popular brand in the industry doesn't have to set you back hundreds of dollars, as there's an option to shop Best Buy's offer for the DJI Mini 2 SE. From the drone's already relatively affordable sticker price of $340, it's down to an even cheaper $300 following a $40 discount. We're not sure how much time is remaining on this bargain because DJI's products almost always get sold out quickly whenever they appear in drone deals, so you better hurry with your purchase if you're interested.

Why you should buy the DJI Mini 2 SE
The DJI Mini 2 SE, which was released in February 2023, is a less expensive variant of the DJI Mini 2, which was rolled out in November 2020. The two drones are very similar, but the huge gap in their prices is due to a downgrade in the camera. From the DJI Mini 2's capability to record 4K video at 30 frames per second, the DJI Mini 2 SE is only capable of taking 2K video at 40 frames per second. If 2K quality is more than enough for you, then the DJI Mini 2 SE is recommended because it's a much cheaper drone with most of the same features.
