Pie in the Sky The Pitch: What could be more American than apple pie? Bath Promotions (asi/38850) puts a twist on the favorite dessert with its line of bakery-scented hand sanitizers, including apple pie, gingerbread, cinnamon buns and more. I'm writing this at 7 a.m., with my cup of coffee…but no cinnamon buns and now I am hungry. These would be a sweet giveaway at trade shows, conventions, health fairs, etc. They are made with natural corn alcohol, aloe vera and vitamin E. Pricing starts at: 250; $1.97-R.

Bring in Da Noise The Pitch: Yesterday, I put the World Cup on for a little bit, since it was raining torrentially, so the pool was not an option. I swear, I thought there was something wrong with my TV, because there was all this noise in the background. I found out this morning, that it was actually crazy soccer fans blowing very loud horns. Fans love making noise for their teams and Vonco Products (asi/94180) comes through with their world-famous Thunderstix, which are perfect for sports and other events. A pair is even on display at the Baseball Hall of Fame, that's how famous they are. Pricing starts at: 2500; $1.43-Q. Check them out: http://www.thunderstix.com/. The Bottom Line: A fan fave.
Keep It Cold The Pitch: What could be more American than backyard barbecues (besides the apple pie I mentioned above, I mean)? And we Americans love to enjoy a frosty beverage at these affairs too. American Zebra Line (asi/35745) keeps cans cool with flag-themed beverage coolers. Item CF-FLAG comes in a variety of colors and it's on sale too at: 150; $1.25-R. Why don't you order them for your client's company picnic? Click here: http://www.americanzebra.com/. The Bottom Line: It's a wrap.
Sounds Fishy The Pitch: OK, here's one for the dads, since Father's Day is also this week. Terra Americana (asi/90907) offers the Dad's Gone Fishing Survival Kit, which includes a snack mix, fish-shaped candies, dill salt, garden radish spice for any kind of fish and recipes for fish dishes. This is a fun idea for fishing trips, boating clubs, and any client who wants to hook an account. Pricing starts at one for $7.92-R. See it here: http://store.terra-americana.com. The Bottom Line: Spice it up
