28 Examples of Minion Innovations

These Villainous Innovations Feature the Minions

— July 22, 2015 — Pop Culture
The Minions are adorable evil doers and the stars of DreamWorks' 'Despicable Me' as well as their own feature film. Though the sinister sidekicks are a popular animation, the short yellow creatures also star in a few of these wild innovations.

In addition to being goofy, The Minions make for a few delicious confections. Minion marshmallows make the perfect topper for a chocolate brownie while a giant Minion cake is the perfect birthday dessert for any Despicable Me fans. The Minions also pertain to fashion followers with a wide range of villainous apparel.

Manikx's Minion t-shirt fuses famous paintings with the adorable Minions for a hypercolor hybrid tee whereas hooded Minion towels allow consumers to dry off in classic villain style.
