Sometimes there's nothing we like better than a rich bite of cake slathered in sweet frosting.
So many people enjoy cake so very much that USA Today recently published an article by Bruce Horovitz about the trend in birthday cake and frosting-flavored products currently on the market. Included among the products they mentioned was our very own frosting-flavored Cupcake Toothpaste:
Novelty product maker Archie McPhee's Cupcake Toothpaste hit the market in 2011. Spokesman David Wahl says one dad e-mailed his kid's comments to the company: "He says it isn't like he's brushing his teeth anymore — he's frosting them."
Taking care of your pearly whites while enjoying the sweet taste of frosting sounds like a dream come true, which is exactly why we made it happen.Archie McPhee Seattle]

As a company, we feel a certain responsibility to cheer people up during difficult times. The current economic downturn, bad weather and the confusing, lackluster third season of Heroes have all contributed to our decision to release a free, web-based version of one of our most popular products, the Emergency Yodel Button. This is cloudware of the highest order, fully integrated with your actual Yodel Button. It has a brand new feature, multi-yodel generation capacity. This new feature allows the yodel button to yodel with itself when the button is pressed multiple times.
So, the next time you find yourself depressed, grumpy or constipated and you have web access, just go here and press the button to make everything all better.
Sure, we've been featured in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, but for us the highlight of our mentions in the press came in 2002 when the now web-only Weekly World News called about the Jesus Action Figure. They were everything you would hope they would be. The woman who called had a scratchy smoker's voice and was shocked when we said we were big fans. My guess is that no one had ever told her that before.
We were happy to supply a quote that implied the action figure had healing qualities without promising anything. She was glad to get it because, she said, they had to make up quotes most of the time. The article was published under her pen name, Max Durango.
They published a follow up story without asking for another quote.
Although we did sell a lot of action figures as a result of the articles, we got returns from people who didn't get healed by it.
