Interesting info: in this current economy the sale of certain items is increasing dramatically. Of course we all know that larger items like cars, houses, etc are not selling as well. But macaroni and cheese, wine, chocolate and dinty-moore stew are selling more than ever. Spam is too.
The sale of condoms went up by 5% when last checked. Read this guy’s quote (too funny): “If people don’t have the money to go out to a fancy dinner or are looking to cut back, Trojan gives them some real affordable ways to stay in and make some great memories together,” says Jim Daniels, vice president of marketing for Trojan, the nation’s No. 1 condom maker.
I guess items like Pepcid and Pepto Bismol are selling more too.
So, what does all of this mean:
Maybe we are having more sex because we are poorer (is that even a word!), maybe we don’t want babies because we cannot afford them or maybe like the guy above mentioned we just are having more sex instead of going out on dates. I’m glad there are more condoms being bought since apparently people drinking more too…less “accidents” this way.
Hawaii is finally “in the trend” with their popular use of Spam. When we were there to visit you could get Spam at McDonalds. Spam to them is like sausage to us. So, they are now finally fitting in.
And, last but not least…all of the sex, wine, chocolate and processed foods are eating away at our guts so we need pepcid.
