Many of the most innovative gadgets sold in America today are specialty items — generally marketed through extravagant late-night TV commercials.
These items also are sold through bulk mail advertisements that use the slogan “as seen on TV!” The business can generate big profits for those who come up with successful products.
TV ads offer U.S. viewers all kinds of unconventional products like the Bacon Bowl — a device that molds fried bacon into an edible container.
There is the Eggie — which addresses the plight of those who hate to peel the shells off hard-boiled eggs — and apparently, there are a lot of them. Six million boxes of this product have been sold, much to the delight of Betsy Kaufman, who came up with the idea at her home in Houston.
