Road Trip The Pitch: There's a lot of chatter on ASI's Facebook page right now about what everyone's favorite road trip song is. Bruce, B52s, Bon Jovi and Journey seem to be big favorites. "Thunder Road" is a particular fave of mine, FYI ("you ain't a beauty, but hey, you're alright!" How could you not love that line?). This item from Hickory Farms (asi/60717) is also destined to be a favorite among roadies. Item #30208 is the Traveling Snacker. This soft-sided cooler comes packed with delectables for those who want to satisfy not only their wanderlust, but their appetites. You'll find sausage, cheese, crackers and mustard. This is a great loyalty reward and pricing starts at: one for $55-V. Click here: http://www.hickoryfarms.com/. The Bottom Line: For any snack attack.
Safe Driving The Pitch: Speaking of my Andrew hopefully (I think) getting his license today, Promotional Slideguide Corp. (asi/79930) offers item CS-1071, the "10 Ways Parents Can Help Teens be Safe Drivers" e-z stick glancer. It includes the top 10 tips to teach teens sensible driving habits, such as avoiding distractions, obeying speed limits, and wearing a seatbelt.
