Now that summer’s over—sob—what better way to remain in denial than by indulging in Ben and Jerry’s treats, all perfect pairings of dreamy dessert within and double entendre without.
A quick survey of the Kroger freezer returned this three-item sample.
The best things in life are FREEzed.
Now that’s rich. Gets my vote.
In puns in the freezer section, I gushed over Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia, Mission to Marzipan, and Karamel Sutra and signed off with the promise of additional data pints documenting the company’s other puntastic delights. It took me five years and change to make good on my promise, and some might even say I’m not doing anyone any flavors. But if your day just got a tad bit sweeter and the punny ice cream names made you smile, this data collection exercise was not entirely pintless.
Happy Valentine’s, dear reader! Love is definitely in the air at Tom Thumb where 12-packs of Coke, Diet Coke, and Coke Zero soar in a Texas-sized display by the checkouts. I had a fizz-ical reaction to this splendid stack and its effervescent kisses in red, silver, and black.
Of the many brands that have fun with words, OPI (Don’t Talk Bach To Me, Unfor-greta-bly Blue,Danke-Shiny Red and other shades in the Germany Collection) and ModCloth (Finance and Dandy wallet, Don’t Worry, Be Strappy wedge, Rolling in the Steep teapot) come happily to mind.
And when “serious” brands show a sense of humor, we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise, than when we first saw pun.
The capped Z heralds the “zing” in Amazing Grass! No accident, I’m sure.
