  • CasusGrill: A Totally Biodegradable Disposable Grill

    CasusGrill: A Totally Biodegradable Disposable Grill

    The phrase “disposable grill” gets abused a little bit out in the marketplace, since most of these disposable grills will collect dust in a compost heap for decades rather than being truly disposed of, in the global sense. But CasusGrill, fresh off winning a “Feel Good” 2017 Danish Design Award, is different. CasusGrill is a […]

    KFC Gamer’s Box 2.0: A Fried Chicken Box/Video Game Controller

    I imagine most who write or talk about the new KFC Gamer’s Box 2.0 will categorize it as something like a “fried chicken box that’s also a video game controller.” That’s totally accurate, and completely in line with KFC‘s recent strategy to do a bunch of crazy stuff to get people to tweet their brand […]

    Ah, the Kit Kat bar, a decadent treat if enjoyed properly, that is, by eating all three bars at once and making no apologies.

    KFC Ltd: A Ridiculous New Merchandise Line from The Colonel

    KFC has handily surpassed Burger King and all its other competitors in the race to come up with the most ridiculous promotional gimmicks. Their latest almost seems quaint compared to launching a chicken sandwich into space – it’s KFC Ltd, a new line of Colonel-branded merchandise.
