My brother's work brings him all kinds of little perks - leftover stuff, forgotten stuff - and all this stuff gets shared with us, his grateful fambly. In this case, it was leftover promotional materials in the form of little silver tins. What was inside? Chocolate covered sunflower seeds!
I 'm totally addicted to these colorful little bombshells.
I have to say, as promotional materials go, chocolate is one of the best. If you're in the market for this kind of thing, pass right by the t-shirts and ball caps. Give the heave-ho to the pens and mouse pads. Go for the chocolate. You can get chocolate covered sunflower seeds in a variety of shapes and containers from any one of the many promotional product companies out there. Check here and here and here, for instance. Some of them will let you customize the colors for specific holidays or events! And this place offers all kinds of chocolate and candy promotional products.
I'm almost tempted to get something like this for my own business. I could hand them out at development meetings, I guess. But since I don't go to trade shows, or other public type marketing events ... who would eat all that chocolate?
Ok, maybe I'll just save some money and buy via the regular route.
