Coffees That Didn’t Quite Make It

30 Jul

Coffee is probably world wide the most popular drink…ever.

Here is a little infographic to inform and empress you.

There is also a lot of competition out there to earn your coffee dollar.

Here are a few products that didn’t quite do as well as expected:

Meatloaf coffee syrup. When you are missing Mom’s home made cooking. Also comes in burnt. Coming soon: Mac and Cheese coffee syrup.

This is an example of two companies coming together to tie in one product. Nescafe coffee and Jelly Belly’s Juicy Pear. I think it’s the weird green look to the coffee that turned a lot of people off.

This one was geared for teenagers, but they of course were to wishy-washy to care.

Seemed like a good idea to team up with a popular TV show, but with the word Blood in the title, it turned everyone off except Goth people…who have no money.

This was an idea to tap in a market that doesn’t drink coffee. Babies! Plus side: Don’t need cream with it.

    I find the coffee facts enlightening and interesting but the rejected coffee ideas are what did it for me, of course. I wish I could have tried the Apathy blend, although I suppose I wouldn’t have cared one way or another what it tasted like.

      True…you would have thought it sold better based on that, but then again no one cared when they ran out.

    Songify and Boston Market. Problem solved.

    Juicy pear could try again and replace those apple bottom jeans. Meatloaf syrup was cracking me up.

    Great coffee facts but we especially like the products that didn’t make it. Maybe we’ll add them to our range of coffees!

      I think Whatever coffee would make you guys a fortune, and me a small creative fee. 🙂

    Your coffee ideas are hot, baby, hot!
    I wonder what other products could be remarketed for babies? Chocolate? Beer? Birth control?

    Also there are no coffee themed board games, just sayin’.
