Are we chemists or cooks?

There has been an interesting trend in the cosmetic industry where companies are launching products that are food themed.  I was reminded about it by this article was posted by one of the chemists on Twitter.

In the article they listed a bunch of strange food cosmetics including… resses lip balm

1.  Okra Conditioner
2.  French Fry Lip Balm?
3.  Fortune Cookie bath products
4.  BBQ fragrance
5.  Pizza Hut fragrance
6.  Wasabi Candles
7.  Bacon fragrance?
8.  Resse’s Lip Balm
9.  Cat food soap
10. White Castle Slider candle

Ever since I worked on the VO5 Strawberries n Cream shampoo, I’ve been a huge fan of fruit flavored shampoos.  But fortune cookie? Bacon?  and White Castle?

That’s just odd.

I wonder what other odd food / cosmetic blends marketers will come up with next.  Any ideas?
