A little perky jerky

It all started with coffee, then energy drinks. Later arrived everything from caffeinated potato chips to donuts. Now Perky Jerky, the caffeinated beef jerky, is here, stopping meat cravings and drowsiness in one savory snack. Made with guarana, each Perky Jerky bag contains 150mg of caffeine, or almost two cans of Red Bull (80mg each). The guys at Perky aren’t just jerky jerky pushers — from crowdsourcing sponsorship options to a Newman’s Own-inspired cause partnership, they’re all business.

I wore my Dunkin’ t-shirt the other day

21 Sep

And got a free donut. That’s not too bad seeing that I completely forgot and it was an unsuspected surprise. It’s all about surprising the consumer these days, or in my case, reminding them of what they get.

Ambient Ice Cream

21 Sep

Unilever, the company behind Magnum ice cream. is developing an ambient ice cream in an attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The low-carbon product, which is being designed with Cambridge University, would be sold at room temperature but then frozen at home – saving the energy normally used to store, freeze and transport ice cream. 

Honestly, I’m not sure how I feel about picking up ice cream and then refreezing it. There is something that is so un-nostalgic about it.

Great little piece from USA today which ask, – How many times a week do you choose fast food as a dining option for your family?

63.2% chose 1-3 times per week which amazes me.
