Food and Wine With Your Name on Them

Let's Dish: Do You Ever Buy a Food Product For Its Name?

We'd all like to think our purchasing decisions are based on careful reasoning and planning, but let's face it: sometimes we choose products using much more shallow criteria. It's difficult, for example, not to be drawn to a wine bottle or snack bag that's got your name on it — I mean, it's practically meant to be! Do you ever buy food products simply because they use your name? If so, tell us which ones!

I don't drink wine, but my friends do. So when I buy a bottle to bring to dinner or whatever, I usually choose based on name or if the label/packaging looks cool.

Never name isnt common but there is a (chocolate!) calcium supplement called "Adora" but I've never felt compelled to buy it online. Maybe if I run across it shopping IRL...

If I ever find something with my name, I will buy it. One downside of having an unusual name.

Yes, I do! It is so rare to see my name "spelled correctly" (LOL) that I do buy things with my name. :) I also buy "name brands" that have the names of relatives and then I give the treats or wine, etc. to them for birthday or Christmas. Wines are stored in my wine cellar for the 21st birthday if it's the name of one of the nieces/nephews/godchildren. :)

I've never bought anything because it had my name in it, but I bought this beer called "Pig's Eye" because my uncle thought it sounded like it'd be really nasty. It actually turned out to be fairly OK.

I do favor Lindsay olives (even if they spell it wrong!), but I haven't found anything else with my name.

I'm not a big fan of wine, but I usually have a bottle or two around to offer wandering gypsies should they pass by. Because of this, I seek out the goofiest labels available. Not too long ago, I made dinner for a friend that was served with a bottle of Old Fart chard. :D

Because I often have the mind of a six year old boy, I am a devotee of Cock brand fish sauce. It makes me giggle whenever I open the cupboard. I don't think I've seen anything "Molly" brand- but I'm sure there are some.

My name isn't common - I've never seen "Kirstin" brand anything. I couldn't even find personalized pencils as a kid, lol!

Sadly yes. My name is so rare that whenever I see something with my name attached to it, I can't help but get a little excited. The sad part is that the food item was actually vegetable oil :/ Lucero Vegetable oil...
