In college, we took a journalism class called Persuasion in Writing, and as part of it had to make up a product and create ads for it. I was stumped for a product, and finally came up with flavored marshmallows, which I called Kissmallows. (My slogans were " a kiss...of cinnamon" or whatever the flavor was.)
And if I had seen these pumpkin marshmallows this Halloween, I not only would have bought them, but I'd have felt a little prouder about what I at the time thought was a stupid and desperate project idea.
I'm an entertainment editor at MSNBC.com, and have maintained Pop Culture Junk Mail since August, 1999. The New York Times called the site "one of the best places to explore pop culture online," and Entertainment Weekly included it on their Top 100 Web Sites list. If you like weird food, strange products, and 1970s and 1980s nostalgia, PCJM is your home away from home.
