Sausage-scented wrapping paper, by Jimmy Dean


Aaaaahhh...there's nothing quite like the smell of savory sausage on Christmas morning, emanating from your....wrapping paper. Yes, wrapping paper - not your kitchen.

For sausage enthusiasts, Jimmy Dean is giving away free branded items in exchange for pictures of consumers' favorite recipes and dishes featuring JD's sausage. Other items include a glass sausage ornament, an apron with Jimmy Dean on it, and Jimmy Dean's Christmas album. But the wrapping paper takes the cake, though, in terms of offering a full sensory experience and fun kitsch to fans of the brand, spicing up their Christmas traditions.

Mickey Mouse is old - let's celebrate


If you haven't heard, Mickey Mouse is turning 90! That is truly a big milestone, and with Disney being such a household brand for so many people and families, it's worth taking a moment to reflect and celebrate.

To do so, Disney created an immersive pop-up exhibit in NYC that takes consumers back in time to where it all started in 1928 with Steamboat Willie, through several art installations by famouse (yes, typo intended) artists depicting Mickey in all his glory. And all the rooms are visually engaging and offer great back-drops for social share-worthy photos. It's a nice walk down memory lane for longterm fans, as well as helping to educate youngsters on the origins of the iconic figure and company (and take for granted how far cartoons have come in general).

One can only wait to see what they do for Mickey's 100th birthday.
