LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – Here are five things to know before you go to bed Dec. 2, 2021.

1. Cilantro soap

Cilantro may taste like soap to some people. but now there’s a soap made from the actual herb. Chipotle is releasing “cilantro soap” on its merchandise website.

The chain created it after posting a picture of a fake cilantro soap package on Instagram back in August.

 The 4-ounce bar of cilantro soap costs $8.

2. Christmas trees

Consumers can expect to pay more for Christmas trees this year. Despite high supply and an increase in customer demand, nationwide prices for live trees are up roughly ten percent this holiday season.

Artificial trees are worse off, up 30% this year.

 Insiders said shipping delays and truck driver shortages are the reason behind the price increases for fake trees.

This could lead to an increase in demand for live trees.

3. Children and books

It’s time to put down the tablet and pick up the picture book.

New research shows books are better than tablets or e-books when reading with your kids.

Researchers found parents using e-books had fewer opportunities to interact with their child and the story, while parents reading from a physical book were able to ask questions and start conversations.

4. Will Smith

A new online petition is calling for the media to stop interviewing Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.  

Thousands of people have signed the petition on Change.org, asking for the couple to not get any more attention.

 In recent interviews, the Smiths disclosed intimate details of their private lives.

 There are lots of comments and reactions from people who signed the petition including one person who said they’ve learned more about the smith’s in the past three months than in the past 10 years.

5. A sweet education

You can now become a part of a community of Reese’s product lovers at Reese’s University.

 The institution, although fake, has a nearly 100% acceptance rate, and a mascot.

Applicants can send in their credentials to Reese’s University with hopes of becoming a “cuppie” themselves.

If college isn’t for you, you can still support the team by keeping an eye on the “schools” line of merch coming in the new year.
