Healthy Choice The Pitch: OK, for the next week, I will be eating everything in sight and not feeling one bit guilty. How about you? After that, however, it makes sense to go back to healthier choices. You Bar (asi/98848) can help with that. This supplier offers customized, fresh, handmade nutrition bars, protein bars, candy bars and energy barswith your client's company name and logo printed on the package. Every bar has its own custom nutrition label, ingredient list, allergy information and expiration date. It's a great idea for health fairs, corporate events, fundraisers, trade shows and more. Pricing starts at: 130; $3.98-R.Click on: www.youbars.com. The Bottom Line: Nuts about it.
Push Plush The Pitch: A couple of days ago, I went outside in my thin robe and slippers to witness the lunar eclipse at 3:30 a.m. Since I'm always awake tossing and turning at that time anyway, I figured, why not go ahead and see this supposed astronomical marvel? If what you see is no moon and a dark sky, then, yes I did see that. I wasn't that impressed, and I was freezing out there! I could really have used a better robe, such as item KH4812 from Terry Collection (asi/90912). This plush and luxurious heavyweight, terry velour kimono robe is perfect for your resort clients. Pricing starts at: 10; $48.50-P for white. Color costs extra, so talk to the supplier. Click here: http://www.terrycollection.com/. The Bottom Line: Snuggle up.
Measure of Success The Pitch: You can always use a tape measure. You never know what will need measuring during your day. Spot 25 Inc. (asi/88883) has item JS0663, a car-shape tape measure key chain made of plastic and metal. Centimeters and inches can be measured. Choose from a variety of colors. You really "auto" pitch this to your car-related clients. Get it? And no, I have not been hitting the eggnog ... yet. Pricing starts at: 5000; $2.17-T. Check it out: http://www.spot25.com/. The Bottom Line: Cool ride-along.
What an Animal! The Pitch: How fun are these? Talking bear pens from Way2Cool Inc. (asi/95735) are what any kid would love. Think of these for zoo stores, definitely, and any kid-related program at all. Pricing starts at: 96; $2.95-R. See them here: http://way2coolpromo.com/. The Bottom Line: Wild times.
