retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Here at MNB, we do love unusual promotions.

And so, we want to draw your attention to a new "Food On A Stick" promotion at Trader Joe's.

"We’re looking for inspired Food On A Stick Recipes to feature on our website for the Trader Joe’s community to devour," the company says in its email to customers. "From appetizers to desserts to all-in-one meals—the potential for Highly Innovative Ingredient Pairing is endless!"

Recipes can use a maximum of six ingredients bought at Trader Joe's - not including the actual stick - and must take no more than 20 minutes to prepare, though the cooking.freezing/grilling time is not included. Alcohol is banned, the company says, so that kids can enter.

I just think this is clever.
