Some products just don’t need a version of the brand in honor of a special occasion. Case in point: Kraft is turning your favorite blue box of Macaroni & Cheese pink for Valentine’s Day, with special Candy Kraft Macaroni & Cheese kits. Not the box (though that could be pink, too) … but the actual noodles and sauce. Yep, there’s a “candy” pack in the box that not only turns the noodles bright pink, but also adds a sweet candy flavor to the decadent dish. Yum? Well, at least they’re free … If this sounds tempting to you, click on CandyKraftMacAndCheese.com from now till February 8th and sign up to get your limited-edition box by Valentine’s Day.

Soldiers, let your hair down … The U.S. Army is approving some new rule changes that will allow female soldiers to let their hair down. Leaders have agreed to loosen hairstyle and grooming restrictions and will allow female soldiers to have ponytails, braids, twists, and other styles. Highlights and dyes will also be allowed, as will earrings and nail polish. The changes, which will go into effect at the end of February, address the complaints of many female soldiers. The Army’s top enlisted leader, Sergeant Major Michael Grinston, says, “This is about an Army standard and how we move forward with the Army, and being a more diverse, inclusive team.” (Fox News)

IYKYK stands for: If you know, you know. It’s used to refer to inside jokes and other inside info that, well, “if you know, you know.” (In the Know)
