Denny’s Calls Out ‘Man v. Food’ Star Adam Richman

Denny's Calls Out 'Man v. Food' Star Adam Richman

In a fun piece of marketing, Denny’s throws itself into the ring with Man v. Food host Adam Richman, calling him out to fill up at the iconic diner. For the price of a press release, Denny’s gets to hype its menu via Twitter and Facebook. Plus, if the Travel Channel actually accepts the challenge, Denny’s will donate money to a worthy cause.

Introducing FOMZ, Zero Gravity Fruit In A Can

FOMZ, Zero Gravity Fruit in a Can

There are never-ending options when it comes to mixers. This is a good thing, as a little squirt of this or a dash of that can change the entire complexion of an alcoholic beverage. Usually however, those mixers don’t come in foam form. Enter FOMZ, a new foamy alternative to traditional mixers. The innovative edible contains no alcohol on its own, so it can also be used for virgin beverages.

Press release and in-action video after the jump.
