1. Mustard Skittles
French’s Mustard is known for their wacky collabs. They’ve done ketchup popsicles and cotton candy and mustard donuts in the past, so these mustardy, chewy candies are no surprise. This release was a stunt for National Mustard Day, handed out on the Mustard Mobile tour that traveled across the country and was strictly limited edition.
2. Oscar Mayer Hot Dog Straws
After a clip went viral of a man sipping his beer through a homemade hot dog straw, Oscar Mayer doubled down and made an actual hot dog-shaped straw out of silicone. The giveaway was over quickly as the free straws ran out faster than it took the website to load.
3. DiGiorno Pineapple Pickle Pizza
Pineapple pizza is divisive. Pineapple pickle pizza is downright demented, but DiGiorno is giving them away for free anyway. The pizza, which is split down the middle, half pickle and half pineapple, is currently sold out (though they cost nothing). New batches drop Tuesdays at 9 a.m. in September. If you can’t score a pizza, you can instead buy exclusive pineapple pickle merch, like Hawaiian shirts and pickleball paddles.
4. Microsoft Pizza Scented Game Controller
As a tie-in to the recent release of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem,” Microsoft gave away an Xbox controller with a diffuser in the back that unleashed the scent of pizza. Microsoft suggests pairing the controller with a classic TMNT game.
5. Pizza Pizza Mosquito Repellant Pizza
Tomatoes, garlic and hot peppers all naturally repel mosquitos, so Pizza Pizza decided to make it all into a pizza pie. The Buzz Off was available on Canada Day, only in Canada, to mark the start of the summer during what was expected to be a particularly mosquito-heavy season.
6. Chipotle Sour Creami
Ninja Creami frozen treat recipes are all over TikTok so Chipotle had to chime in with a recipe for the Sour Creami. It uses a side of Chipotle sour cream, honey, whole milk, lemon juice and salt to make a tasty dessert. We want to see a Guacamole Creami next!
7. McDonald's Fry Thru
Like a giant fry in the sky, when viewed from overhead, McDonald’s Fry Thru looks like a very supersized order of our favorite snack. Seen at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, this kiosk sold only one thing – fries – with a choice of dipping sauces: Wasabi Mayo and Outback BBQ. Now we’re wondering how big the pickles on a giant burger would be.
8. Avocado Cupcakes
We’ve heard that avocados were a secret powerhouse in desserts, but this one takes the cake. Sprinkles Cupcakes partnered with Avocados from Mexico for a special cupcake, a Chocolate Dulce De Leche. Pecan Banana Cake was filled with a core of Dulce De Leche and the whole thing is frosted with dark chocolate avocado cream cheese frosting. Super yum.
9. Fritos Mullets
Fritos recently partnered with Floyd’s Barber Shop and USA Mullet Championship for free mullets every Friday in August. They called the events Free Fritos Flow Fridays and encouraged fans to get a cut with business in the front and party in the back. Fritos also sponsored a sweepstakes for those already rocking to win a year’s supply of Fritos by posting a pic on Instagram.
When Pop-Tarts meets Crocs, hilarity ensues. A limited edition set of Croc-Tarts included a pair of Crocs Clogs with Pop-Tarts-inspired Jibbitz charms and a box of Unfrosted Strawberry Pop-Tarts with Edible Jibbitz charms. Of course, they sold out immediately, because who wouldn’t want to get in on this?
