Pineberries

I’m not easily surprised when it comes to food, but these not only caught my eye, but also had me wondering if I had missed something all my life. Before you try to check your memory to see if you’ve ever seen these let me help you out. The odds are that no, you haven’t.

These strawberry-like berries were “re-launched” by Waitrose last April after near extension

According to the Guardian‘s review from last year they’re not all that great, but I still think they’re cute.

I’m curious and would love to try them, even if they’re supposed to taste like watered down pineapples. I’d love to know if I could get my hand on these in the US.

Found them here.

Ice Cream Party

Because I’m over the age of 10 people look at me funny when, every year, I suggest a theme party for my birthday. Get over it, it will continue happening. I’ll keep looking for borderline acceptable theme parties that can be adapted for the adult world while still appeasing my Neverland ways.
Saddly, I’ll never be able to get away with an Ice Cream party, but I’ll definitely find an excuse to make this adorable cake in the future.

Isn’t it just too cute?

Expense-a-Steak

Fraud-o-matic

Expenseasteak.com is a genius micro site for Maloney & Porcelli’s a NYC steakhouse that has found an interesting way to get you to eat there: make the company pay for it.

This stunt from NYC agency Walrus goes beyond digital marketing in a page that’s both clever and charming. You simply have to enter the total of your Maloney & Porcelli’s bill and it will give you a pdf with a series of realistic looking receipts that add up to the exact amount you spent.

What better way to break through the mold then to have a humorous approach to the recession.

It’s advertising at it’s best, but I wonder if anyone has dared to use the fake receipts, especially with the amount of buzz the web page has gotten.

Buddah Pears

pearbabieseur_450x520

I’ve seen a lot of webpages report on the Baby Shaped Pears that are being grown by a Chinese farmer. He’s been trying to figure them out in 2003 and he reportedly grew 10,000 pears this year. In my opinion, they look more like Buddah than a baby, but no matter what they look like they’re not worth the $5 pounds he’s selling them for. He makes them but putting a plastic mold around them at what he’s emasured to be the perfect time and taking them out of the mold before the ripen.

I find them very creepy, and wouldn’t consider eating one.

Click here for more examples of unnaturally shaped fruits and vegetables.

From a marketing point of view it would be interesting to see if brands would dear to dwell into this. I won’t be surprised if we soon see Mickey shaped apples in Disney World or Logos on certain vegetables.
