DailyDirt: Promotional Space Food

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Red Bull made a huge advertising event out of Felix Baumgartner's record-breaking free-fall from the edge of space. But it's not the only food/drink maker to sponsor a space-related promotion. Maybe it's a bit disconcerting that food companies have enough dough in their advertising budgets to fund crazy stunts, or maybe it's awesome that advertising/marketing budgets are being used to fund incredibly cool projects.... Either way, here are a few other examples of sponsored space foods. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
