The ramp up to summertime is in full swing, and so are the street teams and summer promo parties in my part of the world.
I’ve noticed an interesting trend lately: Citrus fruit in lieu of trinkets-n-trash keychains/magnets/pens.
Why just today I was at the corner of King & Spadina and two blonde girls in matching hotpants were giving away rather succulent-looking limes to promote some kind of website.
Oh look! Here’s a photo for you!
A few weeks earlier I received a whole, honest-to-goodness real lemon in a gift bag from Bombay Sapphire. I was quite impressed.
I think I prefer receiving fruit as a promotional item compared to other garbage. At least this way it’s useful, and I can eat it!
I’ll be keeping my eyes “peeled” for any further invasion of fruit (particularly the portable citrus! Sunkist, where are you?!) and I pose you the question:
Have you received any promotional fruit lately?
