Cleverly combining food and wine for wine lovers throughout the country, Wine Cellar Sorbets produces refreshing sorbets made from vintage wines.
Choose your preferred vintage from a constantly changing wine list that includes a selection of Californian and New York red, white and rosé wines. Available in New York and New Jersey gourmet stores, fine restaurants and caterers, it's a 'cool' new way to enjoy your favourite tipple, and such a brilliantly simple idea i'm amazed it's only just reached the market.

For the 'extra personal touch', Porsche are taking customization one step further and offering the option to replace the product type at the back of any 911 with your choice of text.

The site says "Let your creativity run wild and give your Porsche its own identity and a unique name or personal message". This is definitely our favourite- at least they recognise who their customers are!!

name your Porsche

UPDATE- sorry, my mistake- this is not being offered by Porsche itself but by an external customisation company

In Stores Now is a great site that makes fun of how far brands are infiltrating our lives by placing advertising in the most controversial settings. Among those displayed are ideas for 'branding' strippers, animals and places/items of worship. Funny images, but how long until we see a company push the boundaries of taste and utilise such ideas? Many have come close through 'sponsorship' and 'charity' deals enabling a huge amount of product promotion and placement around these areas, but i've yet to see a logo on a bible. Is this the future of advertising? And will brands soon be buying our skins, if not our souls?
