Lifestyle The List

Motorola is using the beloved RAZR phone to promote their "next big thing," which has the Internet talking!

We are all bombarded, assaulted, and harassed by ads coming at us from every direction. One of their favorite ways to separate us from our money is to prey on our most precious memories, much like what Motorola is doing. Jimmy Rhoades and Marketing Assistant, Vicki Vicker, are taking us on a trip down memory lane, with four nostalgia products that companies are cashing in on.

1.  Jelly Shoes

Jelly Shoes were super popular in the ‘80s! You could get them for a dollar, now they're $10, but totally worth it. You can find them on Amazon, Ebay, and at malls everywhere.

2.  Cars

Notice anything familiar about those fancy new Chevrolet Camaro's and Ford Mustang's? They have a retro feel that reminds us of the past. There’s money in those memories and sales for both cars have been strong since being reissued a few years ago.

3.  Drinks

Beverage companies like Miller and Coke are using retro cans and popular mascots of the past, to tempt our taste buds.

4.  Candy

Sugar coated treats are more than just sweet memories now. Candy makers are cashing in on your happy childhood thoughts by cranking out Rip Rolls, Pop Rocks, Candy Buttons and Ring Pops. Dentists around the world are probably cashing in as well!

No matter what you craved as a kid, it has probably been reissued. We all WIN!
