The Buzz with Scott & Ally: Peeps coffee, goth crocs, loaner engagement rings, & Main St. contest

News

Scott and Ally from WINK 106 join 18 News Today anchors Elizabeth Worthington and Jordan Brown every Friday to discuss trending and buzzworthy topics in “The Buzz with Scott & Ally.”

This week, Scott and Ally are very excited about Dunkin’s recent announcement: On April 1, the chain will begin selling Peeps-flavored coffee and a Peeps-inspired donut. No, this is not an April Fool’s joke!

Another new item on the market that’s not an April Fool’s joke – “goth” Crocs. The shoes are being sold on Etsy for $260.

Milennials are notorious for ditching long-held traditions, so it comes as no surprise that “loaner” engagement rings are becoming increasingly popular. A new report from Vox describes the new trend, where couples choose stones that aren’t diamonds, or to use placeholder engagement rings. In the latter case, a jeweler allows the customer to place a deposit in the $50 to $200 range for an alternative, so that couples have time to save up for the rock they want, or the ring wearer has time to make a decision on an ideal style. In 2018, Helzberg Diamonds released the “Will You?” ring, a $50 silver band engraved with the phrase, “This is a ring, not the ring.” Purchasing it guarantees the consumer a couple hundred dollars off a diamond engagement ring, whenever he or she is ready to get one. 

Scott and Ally also celebrate Corning’s nomination for “Best Main Street in America,” a national contest that would award the city a plethora of prizes.
