Hi-Chew sugars kids up, and tricks them into hygiene

Soft, fruity, chewy. Man, what isn't there to love about Morinaga's delicious candy treat, Hi-Chew? For those of you who haven't had a chance to indulge in a pack of this sugary snack, it's probably best described as somethi...

If you went to any kind of day job in the States today, your conversations probably included a mention of tonight's interstate Powerball drawing. Clocking in at a sweet $550 million, the little gamble was too m...
