Delicious Dessert Weapons

The Marshmallow Double Crossbow Wages a Friendly War

— October 13, 2010 — Life-Stages
If you want to wage a friendly war, I suggest taking up the Marshmallow Double Crossbow instead of a Super Soaker. Yes, water fights are fun and all, but a marshmallow fight is just heaven.

Also, while your friend or sibling is using a tame Marshmallow Shooter, your Marshmallow Double Crossbow will surely take them down. Sold for $36, it holds "up to 50 mini-marshmallows at a time, letting you perform rapid-fire assaults on your co-workers from up to 30 feet away," according to Uncrate.
Trend Themes
1. Rapid-fire Dessert Weapons - The development of marshmallow double crossbows that can shoot up to 50 mini-marshmallows at a time presents an opportunity for innovative and fast-paced dessert battles.
2. Friendly Food Fights - The growing popularity of marshmallow double crossbows indicates a rising trend in friendly food fights, providing an opportunity for businesses to create unique and entertaining experiences around dessert warfare.
3. Innovative Outdoor Toys - The introduction of the marshmallow double crossbow showcases the trend of innovative and interactive outdoor toys, fostering opportunities for businesses to develop creative and engaging products for outdoor play.
Industry Implications
1. Toy Manufacturing - The booming market for innovative outdoor toys, such as the marshmallow double crossbow, suggests a disruptive innovation opportunity for the toy manufacturing industry to create new and exciting products that encourage active and imaginative play.
2. Event Planning - The rising popularity of friendly food fights with marshmallow double crossbows presents an opportunity for the event planning industry to create unique and memorable experiences centered around dessert warfare-themed events.
3. Retail/e-commerce - The demand for marshmallow double crossbows as rapid-fire dessert weapons could create a niche market in the retail and e-commerce industry, with opportunities for specialized online stores to cater to enthusiasts seeking this unique product.
