Happy Ninja New Year!

‎Posted January 06, 2011 in Fred Hacks, Just For Fun, Sightings. Tagged with .

Can you believe it? It's a brand-spankin' new year! If you're anything like us, you spent much of December keeping the couch warm and eating too many cookies. Well, it's time to get back into action. Or, you could start thinking about action. Or, you could start thinking about COOKIES in ACTION! Thanks to our clever fans Nick B. and his wife for baking up a storm and sending us these EPIC pictures of our Ninjabread Men decked out in 80s splendor. In this pivotal scene from the 1984 movie The Karate Kid, bad boy Johnny is attempting to block a well-placed front kick from the hero Daniel LaRusso as the cookie crowd goes crazy. Clearly, Mr. Cookie Miyagi has taught Danny well. We think you'll agree... the resemblance is uncanny. Frosting on, frosting off. We appreciate you sharing your stellar effort with us, guys. Who's next? Have you made anything using a Fred product lately? Let us know!

Ridiculous Patents

‎Posted April 22, 2010 in Just For Fun. Tagged with fun.

We’ll let you in on a little secret: of the hundreds of product submissions we receive, there are always a few that remind us of these ridiculous patents. Take one crazy idea, add a witty name, et voila! A Fred product.Ooooh, were it so easy… sing my gray hairs in unison. Since we can’t show you any of the more outlandish submissions, we’ll share these patents with you. You get the picture.

This video made us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Comedian Mark Malkoff sets out to disprove the myth that New York is unfriendly by attempting to transport himself from the southern most end of Manhattan as far north possible only by having people on the street physically carry him along the way.
