1. Canada reveals Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup-stuffed burger.

Today is National Chocolate Day, and this burger is well aware. This burger, revealed earlier this month by Ontario burger chain The Works, is both topped and stuffed with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Additionally its garnished with bacon and fried onion strings. Looking for a less adventurous way to celebrate National Chocolate Day? Check out these pudding-filled cupcakes instead.

2. Lauryn Hill to replace D’Angelo at Fun Fun Fun Fest.

This isn’t the late 90’s but Lauryn Hill can still save us. Fun Fun Fun Fest has announced that the R&B singer will replace previous Sunday headliner D’Angelo and the Vanguard after the soul singer canceled his set ahead of the Nov. 6-8 festival. Hill, who hasn’t had a new release in over 15 years, is known for her 1998 album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”

3. Taco Bell to offer free breakfast Nov. 5 after making World Series deal.

On the off chance that the reason you haven’t yet had Taco Bell’s breakfast is the prices, we’ve got great news. The chain will offer free A.M. Crunchwraps to patrons who make it out on Nov. 5 after promising to do so if a base was stolen within the first two games of the World Series. You have the Royals’ Lorenzo Cain and the Mets’ Juan Lagares to blame — I mean thank.

4. Artist creates Donald Trump “Trumpkin” out of 374-lb. pumpkin.

Not sure what to carve into your Halloween pumpkin this year? An Ohio artist added another possibility to the list when she carved a Donald Trump caricature out of a 374-lb. pumpkin and called it a “Trumpkin.” The pumpkin sits on her front porch, behind a sign reading “Make pumpkins great again.”

5. Foam sculpture at Laguna Gloria activated three times a week.

Roger Hiorns’ installation “A retrospective view of the pathway” at the Laguna Gloria museum has proven that bubbles and large amounts of them are as loved as ever. The Contemporary Austin has announced that the installation, which spews non-toxic foam out of two oversized tubs, will now be active three times a week: Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m., and Tuesdays at 4 p.m. The museum also offers free admission on Tuesdays.
