I’ve seen candy packaged in medicine bottles before. It’s a fun idea, good gift, cute, etc. Recently we became aware of a company called Joylab that’s embraced this concept, after they sent us this:
This medecine couldn’t be more spot on for me. What’s WITH these winter months from hell with no football? It feels wrong, nay-BAD. At heart, I’m a baseball fan, but man….football is an addiction and Daddy needs it. So of course, I chuckled like a kid at this packaging.
Other options you can select when choosing a prescription for that special someone in your life?
“drama free relief”
“negativity 0% positivity 100%”
“against ghost (which don’t exist)” ….might wanna check the spelling on this one, boys. Still, the absurdity of it makes me happy
“for man flu” (wtf?)
“happy bird day” (yes!)
“you are dope”
“for the best teacher” (aww)
Best part though? You can make a custom prescription. So if you’re like me, you can exercise your option to be a turd. Something like:
“stop being a dick!”
“I hate you less than last month, surprisingly”
“if this doesn’t help your fart breath, nothing will”
As you can see, the possibilities are endless. But that’s not the coolest thing about Joylab. According to their “smile by smile” initiative, with every bottle purchased they make a donation of school supplies to children in need.
I don’t know exactly what percentage goes to the kids, but it’s a great cause, obviously. Kids are dumb enough WITH school supplies, we certainly don’t need them any dumber. So I love this about Joylab.
If there’s a fault with Joylab’s product, it’s the selection of candies currently available. There’s only a handful, and they need to change that. I got sweet & sour hearts, which were yummy, but in order for this to really work, there’s gotta be at least 20 things to choose from. I figure that, when sending candy to someone, you need to at least get close to their “thing”. Sending a Peanut M&M’s fan (I’m looking at you, Mrs. Guru) Gummies or sours isn’t gonna cut it. But this is a minor, easily fixable problem.
I’m into Joylab. I like what they’re doing with regards to the kids, and I like the fact that they realize that football should be a 6 month sport. Seriously, make it end in early April right as baseball is starting. That works better for me.
