Delicious Delectable Desirable Dinner

One key to marketing is to create a way for people to remember your product. There are many ways to do that but one of the most fun (and annoying) is to create alliteration.

Alliteration is where multiple consecutive words all start with the same consonant sound. You know many of these as they are often used in tongue-twisters:

  • She sells sea shells by the sea shore.
  • Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled Peppers

Think of some of the brands that you know well that use alliteration:

  • American Airlines
  • Bed Bath and Beyond
  • Coca-Cola
  • Dunkin Doughnuts
  • Foster’s Freeze
  • Gold’s Gym
  • …and so on

No. I couldn’t come up with one that starts with E!

I had three packages of tortillas in my fridge that were open. This was a good chance to use them up.

Don’t fill them too much else all your filling will come out.
