A lot of times I will voluntarily do a "product placement" in my posts or text...just because I want to and because it's fun.

I like writing out the actual name of things. For example, we never said "pasta" in my family's home growing up. We said "Ronzoni", which I still purchase because it tastes good and I really like the blue boxes with the numbers on them ( Ziti #49).

Many people are like this, so I will spontaneously burst into a series of proper nouns that properly define the thing in question.

I think also in this time of retail slumping, people need to pump each other up about buying long as they are not excessive.
