If you've somehow managed to hold off on buying a Snuggie—maybe the promise of warmth or an elaborate Snuggie sex manual didn't sway you—then perhaps the latest, electric-heated version will be the one for you. The Coz-E is a Snuggie-style blanket with sleeves, except that it's an electric blanket, promising a full-body cocoon of dry heat. However, would-be buyers might note that they're not cheap—current retail is $68.

"With the same amount of money, you could go to Walmart and buy an original-brand Snuggie and a heated electric throw blanket, and have enough left for a pizza and a six-pack of cheap beer," writes Laura Northrup on the Consumerist. (More Snuggie stories.)
