Creativity is found everywhere. Why, just the other day I was reading about the man who came up with the gun to shoot Pope John Paul II in the intestines in 1981 in St. Peter's Square! Why did I do that? Because this historical event features in my latest novel - as part of the creative process!
Let's look at some creativity now!
1. The Minestrone Soup / Kit Kat Kontroversy!
Have you ever bitten off both ends of a finger of Kit Kat?
And dunked it into a cup of minestrone soup? The story goes that you can suck the soup up into your mouth through the Kit Kat, like a straw. You would expect this combination of savory and sweet to be disgusting. You wouldn't be wrong!!!
But when pregnant Michelle Marshall decided to do it, mad as she was on her taste-bud pregnancy hormones, husband Joe Nestlé hit upon an idea. Although he was not related to the Nestlé people who make Kit Kat outside of the United States (where he is known as Joe Hershey), he switched out his wife's minestrone soup with coffee - a beverage more conventionally associated with chocolate eating.
And he asked the Kit Kat people for the royalties while he sat in the boardroom with all of the corporate bigwigs, sucking on his fingers as they stuck them in their coffee, telling him "It'sh delishush!" That's why you have to pay five cents every time you try Joe's clever coffee-based trick. It could also be where the expression "Cup of Joe" comes from. But it's not!
Come back for more creativity in an indeterminate length of time!!!
