Copley Square Swag Report: 8/15/06

So yesterday, as I was leaving work and walking to the T, I spotted a person dressed in a giant watermelon costume. There were a few people hanging around the water in bright pinkish-red T-shirts, wearing caps and carrying tote bags, clearly filled with some sort of swag. So as usual, for you, my gentle readers, I approached the watermelon and picked up some swag. (Surprisingly, they weren't handing things out very aggressively.)

I ended up with three pieces of Wrigley's Extra Sugarfree (yes, they spell it as one word) Gum in the Cool Watermelon flavor. Apparently it is a new flavor they wish to promote. Now I don't like gum, so even if this were certifiably kosher, I would decline to try it.

I've left my pieces on the chair of the Official MABFAN's Musings Non-Kosher Swag Food Taster this morning. I have no idea if she would be willing to try it, but if she is, we'll have a report.

And let me just add -- given the humidity, yesterday was not the day to be parading around Boston in a watermelon costume.
