Ridiculous advertising never tasted so good

Evidently, eating ice cream is going to save you from the faltering economy. Don’t believe it? Just check out the marketing on this container.

Recovery in a gallon-sized carton?

“Red, White and No More Blues!” is a flavor of ice cream now? And the catch phrase is “Recovery never tasted so good.”

Really?!

Now, I’m not trying to knock Edy’s because they make some amazing ice cream flavors (try their peanut butter cup, it’s life-alteringly delicious), but when did we start using people’s economic fears to name and sell dessert flavors?

  1. I love this marketing idea! I have not seen this in grocery stores yet, but that might be because of the economy…ice cream just isn’t as important to my budget anymore! I guess it did not work for me.

    • If you believe this label, ice cream will chase away your economic blues, so maybe you should swing by the freezer section!

  2. Wow haha that is kind of sad.

  3. really sad wow. haha. marketing on the pity tip..not cool..haha.

  4. I know! I stood staring for a few minutes to make sure I wasn’t making this up. It’s hilarious with the saddest implication.
