You've Got My Attention

The best thing about working close to a large transportation hub in New York City is that it's a marketers' dream; especially when it comes to handing out promotional samples.

Right next to the hawkers of the free news dailys (amNY, metro), unpaid marketing interns hand out free Kellogg's Special K bars, Dentyne Gum; I even saw Ugly Betty look-a-likes (complete with Guadalajara ponchos) handing out Ugly Betty mask!

Today's free promotional gift takes the cake. To promote the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods, a series that I enjoy regularly, they were handing out packages of these.

Here's the link again in case you missed it.

Awesome, right?

Even enjoying my share of 'bizarre' foods, I don't know if I can handle my pack of Salt and Vinegar Crick-ettes.
