April isn't as exciting without starting off with a couple of pranks. And as always, our favourite brands went full on for April Fool's this year, setting us up with cheer-worthy and even wish-fulfilling faux releases. But while some of them are without a doubt questionable, others actually had us wishing their hoax-y products and services would happen in real life. Care to see which of these made it into our wishlist and why? Keep on scrolling to find out.
Halo Top edible face masks
What's your ideal night in? We're thinking face masks, a K-drama marathon on Netflix, and ice cream — lots of it. Great, right? This is why ice cream brand Halo Top's idea of edible face masks piqued our interest immediately. Sure, the idea of horking down something after you've used it on your face is icky, but there are definitely other ways to work around it. Say, divide the tub of product with one for eating and one for pampering and voilà! If this product exists IRL, it's already got your weekend relaxation covered without needing two trips to the beauty counter and the grocery store. Plus, you don't ever have to worry about tasting bitter serums on your mouth during a masking session. Now, you see the appeal?
HyperX's Nissin Cup Noodles headphones
One word: WANT! As tacky as it may seem, we're all living for novelty products and this one takes home the crown for sure. And yes, instant noodles' sodium levels may not exactly be friendly, but they're sure high up in the ranks with the best comfort foods ever. Still, if you're a fitness buff through and through but would still want a taste — pun intended — of compact ramen goodness minus the health risk, these HyperX headphones make up for the next best thing. The product was suspiciously released on 1 April and is currently listed as sold-out on Nissin's online Fan Store so we can't say for sure if this is 100 per cent a hoax. But if it's not, then is there a waitlist we need to sign up to to get this ASAP?
