Jif is releasing a limited-edition jar of GIF peanut butter in a collaboration meant to be as smooth as the product itself.

The purpose is to “settle the great debate” over how to pronounce the looping image format that has overtaken in the internet, J.M. Smucker Company (SJM), the brand’s manufacturer, said in a press release.
Although Jif is obviously pronounced with a “soft G,” people often mispronounce the word “GIF,” which is short for Graphics Interchange Format. It’s said with a “soft G like the peanut butter and not a “hard G.” That’s according to creator Steve Wilhite, who made the declaration in 2013 while accepting a Webby Award.
Regardless of the official ruling, the internet has remained divided. Jif is partnering with GIPHY, a GIF search engine, to “put a lid on this decade-long debate”: Both GIF and the peanut butter are pronounced “Jif.”

Kyrie Irving Unveils Nike Kyrie 4 ‘Wheaties’ With Incredible Packaging

The Shoe of Champions? Kyrie Irving has teamed up with Wheaties for a very special edition of his Nike Kyrie 4 signature sneaker.

His next food-inspired collaborative sneaker after teaming with Pepsi for a promotional Nike Kyrie 1 and Krispy Kreme donuts for a tasty take on the Kyrie 2, Irving has unveiled his Kyrie 4 “Wheaties” — and the packaging is incredible.

Along with the pair of sneakers — which are even packaged in a clear cereal box-style baggie — the box includes a Kyrie-branded cereal bowl, spoon and single-serving mini-box of Wheaties.

Nike and Kyrie pulled out all the stops for this amazing release, which in addition to teaming up with Wheaties also appears to be a bit of promotion for his upcoming “Uncle Drew” movie, releasing June 29 and starring the electrifying baller’s old-aged alter ego.

The Nike Kyrie 4 “Wheaties” is rumored to be limited to only 100 pairs, and no release information has been announced yet. It’s likely that the special packaging will be gifted only to select media members and influencers, but stay tuned for any retail release information. The Kyrie Irving Wheaties cereal box will be hitting grocery store shelves soon.
