Lollyphile, the crazy company behind the Absinthe, Maple-Bacon and Wasabi-Ginger suckers, has launched Candyphile, a candy-of-the-month club. Available in 4-month ($96), 6-month ($120) and 12-month ($204) subscriptions, you'll get a 4-pack of unique candy the first week of every month. But this isn't stuff like Twix and Butterfinger. Instead, you'll be getting hand-picked and hard-to-find candy that isn't distributed to most parts of the country. Get your mouth ready for some tasty, teeth-rotting surprises.

It's no secret that coral reefs are declining. But thanks to the Coral Restoration Foundation, there is hope that these underwater ecosystems can make a comeback. Inspired by divers who are making this restoration a reality comes the Staghorn Restoration Watch. Part of the Oris Aquis collection, the Staghorn features automatic movement and a uni-directional rotating diver's bezel with a ceramic insert for timing dives. It also features a 43.5mm stainless steel case, is water-resistant to 300 meters, and has a dark blue dial and bright orange minute scale for visibility and to reflect the color of Staghorn coral.

Designed with former elite military operatives, the Ceramic Clothing System from Vollebak is as hardcore as any extreme conditions you might encounter. It boasts a three-part layering system that is the first in the world to use ceramic technology to make their T-Shirt, Baselayer, and Midlayer. All three are abrasion resistant yet soft, stretchy, breathable and as comfy as your favorite sports clothing. And each Ceramic layer is embedded with over 100,000 particles that can't be scratched off or washed away.

Not only are they super-spiced, but they come in a bottle instead of a sure-spillable bag. [Thanks, Chad]
