Our 5 Favorite Promotional Products of the Week: Special All-Food Thanksgiving Extravaganza Edition
Thanksgiving is tomorrow, so we felt like a special edition of the Fave 5 was in order. In honor of America's most gluttonous holiday, this week's promotional products are all food-related. We recommend reading them with a nice big side of gravy-soaked mashed potatoes.
Oh, while we're on the topic of giving thanks, the entire staff of Promo Marketing would also like to thank YOU for reading. This year has been one heck of a ride (and it's not over yet), but we appreciate you hanging in there with us. We hope you have a wonderful holiday!
Now, onto the Faves.
1. Rubio's 'Peace, Joy & Burritos' Gift Box
We don't have any Rubio's Coastal Grill locations out here on the East Coast, but based on the contents of this gift box, we wish we did. On Black Friday, the fast-casual Tex-Mex chain will release 1,000 of the limited-edition boxes, which will retail for $39.95 and include a double-sided burrito blanket, branded socks, a vanilla/cinnamon-scented churro candle, a jigsaw puzzle and more.
2. Nissan x Sanrio Collab
— Original Top Ramen (@WeAreTopRamen) November 17, 2020
We've covered Nissin a few times before, but now the maker of dorm-room staples Top Ramen and Cup Noodles makes its Fave 5 debut. For this merchandise collab, it teamed up with Sanrio, the entertainment company behind Hello Kitty and Gudetama (seen above), for some adorable shirts and other items.
3. Hi-Chew Capsule Collection
Sorry, Starburst—real candy-heads know Hi-Chew is the one true king of the fruit-flavored taffy squares. The Japanese brand cements its low-key royal status with its first-ever merchandise collection, available at its online store. The socks are rad, but the sticker packs are our favorite.
4. In-N-Out Colorado T-shirt
In-N-Out opened its first locations in Colorado over the weekend, with fans lining up for 14 hours to get a taste of the magic. That's a long wait, but you don't have to line up for the brand's new merchandise. Available at In-N-Out's online store, this T-shirt was designed by a local artist after In-N-Out's owner contacted him out of nowhere to create something for the Colorado launch. Pretty cool!
5. Cheddar Bay Biscuits Gift Box
Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits are a national treasure, and while the bake-at-home mix available at the grocery store is fine, it'll never top the real-deal restaurant version. Red Lobster knows that, which is why it's making its biscuits available right from the restaurant. Through the holiday season, fans can get six biscuits in a festively decorated gift box decked out in Red Lobster branding. Some say it's the greatest gift of all.
