Let's Dew breakfast: PepsiCo Inc. is rolling out a breakfast version of Mountain Dew. The product, called Kickstart, contains a whopping 5 percent fruit juice, various vitamins and -- here's the point -- an extra hit of caffeine.

Calm, submissive: Being left alone all day while their masters bring home the bacon-flavored dog treats can make man's best friend sad, anxious and, worst of all, prone to chew on your $180 pair of Air Jordans. Lucikly, food-filled dog toys can keep Fido calm -- and your shoes unscathed -- by giving him something to focus on.

In other words, the exact opposite of what breakfast Mountain Dew is intended for.

-- Mark Carlson, Herald staff
