- Auntie Anne's - Let's call it the "Flower Power Logo Change." Supposedly looking to appeal to "Gen-Z" (that's the generation that comes after millenials), Auntie Anne's is replacing their current halo-crowned pretzel logo with a flower-crowned one instead. They're supporting the joke on their actual website and social channels so you can direct your friends/family accordingly.
Here's some choice quotes they put out regarding the somewhat ironic logo change:
"We're proud to reveal a new look that's as fresh as our pretzels," said Carol Pasquariello, Vice President of Marketing for Auntie Anne's. "We spent nearly two years developing, testing and tweaking our logo. While it was an arduous process, the end result is a look that's, as the kids say, 'lit.'"
"I can't even with this transformation!" squealed Juniper Wren, age 16. "It's important to me that brands speak to me and my overall aesthetic. I'm Instagramming my hand holding a pretzel in the air as we speak. My squad is going to love it."

- Buffalo Wild Wings - To help fans grow out their "rally beards" and support their team's success during the tail end of March Madness, Buffalo Wild Wings has come up with Rally Beard Sauce. The hair-growing tonic/wing sauce is described as by the chain as "scientifically designed to stimulate beard growth and help fans rally their team back from even the most lopsided deficit." It also delivers a spicy garlic flavor.
Here's the concept explained:
Sadly, they're not actually making the sauce commercially available... yet. They did however send me a bottle so maybe the joke's on me:

The commercial for the new product spoofs your typical toothpaste commercial:

It's a joke but they also try and use it to highlight their convenience and delivery service.

Here's how they put it together:
Apparently, it's 1/48th the size of the original. There's actually a whole channel on YouTube dedicated to making miniature food (plus how to make the mini tools to make the food).
