Unsurprisingly, our Chelsea Donovan thought it was pretty good. I did too, actually, in smaller doses. It's a mindless way to have a little fun for a few minutes on the web.

Here's a list of ingredients and it won't take much time. Trust me, after trying these, I'll do it again and again, all summer long.

(P.S. Chelsea Donovan liked them, but who's kidding whom? She likes everything! LOL)
