As NOW’s food editor, I get sent some weird shit. Unsolicited, of course, and generally never anything you’d ask for anyway. Not that I’m complaining, but how many amusing pairs of promotional oven mitts from the Food Network does one need? Answer: plenty!
The promo bumpf often arrives in an elaborately gift-wrapped box full of raffia, a press release announcing something crucial like the 85th anniversary of the Oreo cookie, and the suggestion for a fantastic cover story, jpeg attached. But do they send me cookies? Forget it!
So, I’m surprised to find something I can actually use in a promo package from a local company that has just launched a line of “tongue-in-cheek” zip-lock plastic baggies decorated with psychedelic 60s graphics like fluorescent camouflage. Promises the press release:
“Add a splash of colour to a boring sandwich, a little punch to party favours, cool factor to your school snack or munchies in the park.”
Party favours? A very stylish place to stash your weed, more like.
