There are other new characters entering the ring, but the game play is still the same.  More blood is being shed and the fatalities are just as brutal as ever.  Each and every fighter comes with their own unique special moves to take down your opponent.

And this year, one colorful character will be joining in on the Kombat Pack 1.  Entering the Mortal Kombat universe comes… The Joker.

The Joker will be joining the fighters this year.  He comes with his own quirky special moves, making for some epic fatalities.  Its these moves that will surely uppercut his opponents to their death.  His fatalities come with special props including a jack-in-the-box, a puppet, knives, a cane, and some guns.

Those props, as well as the creepy performances, make for one brutal character in Mortal Kombatl 11.  The Joker will be released among the other characters such as Sindel, Nightwolf, Spawn, The Terminator, and Shang Tsung.  You can get the downloadable content when it comes out this month.

This makes for amazing publicity stories for both Mortal Kombat and The Joker.  The Joker may have come from a different franchise, but he is a gritty and scary villain who’s always after Batman.  He’s crazy enough to become a guest fighter in Mortal Kombat 11.  While the game was released almost a year ago, the Kombat Pack 1 will generate more buzz around the audiences.

With that, The Joker coming to Mortal Kombat 11 will be no laughing matter.  The Joker comes with some comical, yet gruesome fatalities that will knock out every one of his opponents.

Other than cannabis, hemp is another unique product trending around the nation.  Hemp is being used as one of many ingredients for classic food staples like milk or waffles.  With cannabis legalization setting forth around America, hemp is also gaining nationwide trends as well.

Interestingly enough, hemp is being utilized for what is known as hemp-based meat.

The hemp-based meat can be used for making burgers and sausages.  A hemp-based burger is a burger created from hemp seeds.  Hemp seeds contain ten essential amino acids as well as omega 3 and 6.  Its one of the latest items in the plant-based meat trends happening these days.

For the record you CAN’T get high from consuming hemp-based meat.  Hemp contains very little THC, but it does contain a lot of essential and nutritional ingredients.  It is rich in protein, amino acids, omega 6, omega, 3, and other beneficial compounds.

These plant-based meat meals are one thing, but hemp-based meals take the trend one step further.  Hemp has really gotten mainstream coverage now that cannabis use is becoming more widespread across the world.  With hemp being utilized for more food ingredients, who knows what dishes will be created next.

Hemp-based meats are the start of a whole new subculture in the food world.  Both hemp and cannabis are being utilized for ingredients and new dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Foods like hemp-based burgers only modernize the classic meals we grew up with here in America.

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, video games are one of many entertainment options that restaurants and bars offer for their patrons.  There’s nothing better than having a drink with your buddies while playing Super Smash Bros. on a flat-screen.  It’s a bar event worth going to in your local city.

When it comes to video games, the best option is Nintendo since there are more (and better!) multiplayer games to play from.  The Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, and Wii all offer amazing games to play.  One of the more popular consoles that is out now is the Nintendo Switch.

With Nintendo games being offered to play in more restaurants and bars, its no surprise that the Nintendo Switch is popular this year.  Some of the best multiplayer games have mostly been from Nintendo.  Games like Mario Kart 64 or Mario Party are perfect games for a group of people to play while dining on good craft beers and appetizers.

Unique Water Products Philosophy

We looked at two unique water products this week, CBD water and hydrogen water.  CBD water is infused with cannabidiol.  Hydrogen water contains extra hydrogen molecules.  Both products offer their own unique benefits to the audiences.

To take something so simple, like water, and modernize it with some other ingredient is truly outstanding.  This concept has been done before with other beverages (like Coca-Cola or alcohol!) as a means to reach out to other consumers.  Some people like vanilla added to their sodas or dragonfruit mixed into their tea.  They ask for things such as flavored sodas, beers mixed with fruits, various protein shakes.  It’s all about catering the food/drink experience based on the ongoing trends in the nation.

CBD is trending high in the nation, so it only makes sense to add it into waters for those 4/20-friendly consumers.  Some athletes want something to help out with their workout recovery, so hydrogen water would be the right choice for them.  The right type of waters will help out those niche audiences in need.

As the years go on, there will be even more trends in bottled water products.  We can find the solutions for more unique concepts by looking at what our audiences want in their beverage experience.  It’s about creating that beverage experience for the niche audience.

Cooling Off with Hydrogen Water

I gotta tell you folks – that CBD water really hit the spot last week.  Its combination of CBD into alkine 9+ph water truly quenched my thirst.  This water has much more health benefits, especially when its packed with CBD.

Drinking that CBD water got me thinking – water, or rather, the product of water, has truly changed over the years.  Companies have been adding various ingredients into water to create a more innovative concept.  Electrolytes, mineral, coconut, and vitamins are a few of many ingredients being infused into water these days.  Each and every ingredient helps present water as a hip, modernized beverage item in this ever-changing society.

Interestingly enough, I recently came across yet another modern trend in water.  It’s a simplistic, yet ingenious approach to one of our most sought after beverages.  This beverage is known as Hydrogen Water.

Hydrogen Water speaks for itself – it is basically water with extra hydrogen molecules added.  The extra hydrogen helps with things such as athletic performance or overall mood.  It’s the type of water that would be great before or after your workout.

Water is created when hydrogen and oxygen through electrolysis, as in, the splitting of molecules.  All that is different are the additional hydrogen molecules being added into hydrogen water.  Its no different than the concept of adding such things or coconut or caffeine; and yet, this simple idea creates a new line of bottle water products.

We continue to revolutionize water every day and hydrogen water is just one of many examples of that.  Water is one of our most basic needs in life.  It is a product we truly cannot live without.

Trends like hydrogen water will always live on now and in the future.  Water is a food item that will never go out of style.
