Here at Cooking Light, we receive unsolicited products and samples every day, usually from PR and marketing folks who wish for their brands to be featured in the magazine. We don't normally feature a lot of products, because we believe it's the type of food (not necessarily the brand) that is most important.

Curious items pop up each week on our Freebie Table, a small counter top near the coffee maker. Things that make wonderful conversation pieces. We're not endorsing anything here, just sharing some of our most interesting mail. We'll leave the comments up to you...
