I am a product whore in fact those advertisers, twisting their pencil thin mustaches between their pointy fingers sitting in a room construing slogans to get consumers like me to buy something, have me at HELLO. There is something so exciting about trying a new lotion, potion or sweet that, while I know it will not make me skinny, or have a male model kissing my neck sensuously, for that one brief shining moment will in some way improve a small iota of my existence. Perhaps it will shave five minutes off my from my cleaning schedule, or may make me smell like roses (what my 11-year-old says when I wear perfume)and as far as I’m concerned life’s evanescent nature implores me to seize the day and /or product, because.. WHY NOT?!
So when I was approached about offering a The Staten Island Family reader the opportunity to win all of the products that were awarded the highly coveted 2017 product of the year seal of approval, well of course I JUMPED at the opportunity. (Yes I get them as well… but being the good girl I am felt it was only fair to share the wealth with one of you too!)
So just what is Product of the Year USA? Well they recently held their annual awards ceremony in New York City where they highlighted the best consumer packaged goods that rewards product innovation and is voted on by 40,000 real shoppers. And I”m giving away all the winners below!
This year’s 28 award winners were recognized during the 2017 Product of the Year Awards Show on Feb. 9 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. The event was hosted by “Saturday Night Live” alumnae Rachel Dratch and Ana Gasteyer. The awards show was followed by an after party sponsored by Smirnoff.
“Competition is fierce among consumer brands, with thousands of new products introduced to the market each year,” said Product of the Year USA CEO Mike Nolan. “This year’s winners will have a true advantage over competitors as they are able to utilize the distinctive red Product of the Year logo on packaging and in brand advertising to show shoppers that 40,000 consumers recommend their product against the competition.”
