From KFC-Scented Firelogs to Taco Bell Wrapping Paper, Why are Food-Related Holiday Promotions so Bonkers?

Last month, we told you about some pretty awesome holiday promotions, but the promotional merchandise in this article is some of the best I have ever seen. Red Lobster released an ugly Christmas sweater that has an insulated pocket to store extra cheddar biscuits. No more stuffing the free bread in your purse, ladies.

KFC has log for your fireplace that smells like fried chicken. Taco Bell has beef-scented wrapping paper.

Why it Pays to Present Your Customers with Promotional Merchandise

This blog offers three key reasons promotional merchandise is the number one way to increase your brand’s exposure and gain the loyalty of customers.


Innovation Watch: Seaweed Tees & Vegan Jackets

This article focuses on Pangaia, an apparel brand leading the way in sustainable, environmentally friendly clothing. Pangaia boasts a T-shirt that can be worn up to ten times without washing, reducing water waste by 39%, and a puffer jacket made with recycled plastic bottles and filled with wild flower down.

Unfortunately, these items range from $150-$900. But, this is something we should keep in mind as we push to offer more vegan and eco-friendly promotional merchandise.
