Peanuts as business cards!

Posted on 19/09/2007 by Carletti mathilde Categorized: Unusual products

There is something you need to know about me: I am the kind of person you’d better not invite to take the aperitif!!
Because for me, the concept of the aperitif is closely bound to the possiblity of making a pig of peanuts!!
A big lot of peanuts… I just love it and I won’t stop untill suffocation!

And now, you’re going to understand why I want to move to Japan!

A Japanese invention which allows you to have your business card imprinted on a peanut!!

I found this product on a funny website: www.pinktentacle.com

I am not convinced the product is efficient to have new business partners! (your business card can disappear in someone’s stomach!!)

But let’s see what we can learn about this product:
Article from www.pinktentacle.com

« For people looking to liven up the formal rigmarole surrounding the exchange of business cards in Japan, Arigatou Co., Ltd., a company specializing in the sale of laser-etched food products, offers “Taberu Me” edible business cards printed on peanuts.

Laser-etched beans and nuts — Taberu Me cards are created using Arigatou’s high-grade CO2 laser engraver nicknamed “Shiawase-kun,” which can etch up to 700 characters per second on hard organic materials like beans, nuts, rice and pasta and which has been optimized to print clean-looking logos, names and telephone numbers on the irregular surfaces of peanut shells.

As for the product name, Taberu means “eat” and Me could either be an abbreviation of meishi (”business card”) or “me” in English, in which case Taberu Me would be saying “Eat me” — a message you probably don’t want to convey to your new business partner at the first meeting. Regardless, a set of 150 Taberu Me cards costs 5,800 yen (around $50), which is mere peanuts considering the lasting impression you will make on your new counterparts. »
