QR Code Review - Coop Sports Super Skim 35 - QR codeToday we look at a QR code you can find on Coop Sports Super Skim 35.  It measures about 1 inch square but does not include a call-to-action but does include a URL.

This particular product is a skim board.  As the waves hit the beach and recede, a thin layer of water is left on the sand.  Using this board, people run along the beach, throw the board on top of that thin layer of water, and skim across it, often landing in the water.  Not too dangerous and a whole lot of fun.

QR Code Review – Tanimura & Antle Sweet Italian Red Onions

QR Code Review - Tanimura & Antle Sweet Italian Red Onions - QR codeToday we look at a QR code found on a bag of Tanimura & Antle Sweet Italian Red Onions.  It measures a little less than 1 inch square and does not include a call-to-action or URL.

I’ll bet the call-to-action was there in the beginning but when the onions were being cut, it’s eyes were watering and it had to go (what… a call-to-action can’t have eyes???)

On a completely unrelated note, if you’ve ever wondered why your eyes water when you are cutting or preparing onions, here is your answer.  If that is not enough, here is more information.  The end result is that something in the onion turns to gas and when that gas hits your eyes (or really, the moisture in your eyes), it is converted into sulfuric acid.  Sulfuric acid is the same stuff in your car battery.  Of course, onions do not produce very much sulfuric acid and it is very weak, but it still burns.  

Once you cook the onions, the substance in the onions that causes all the problems is inactivated and all is well for your eyes.  So, battery acid in the eyes = bad, cooked onions = yummy.

Today we look at a QR code found at a local Zaxby’s restaurant.  My family and I go there often.  The food is good and often, during the summer months, kids eat free one day of the week.  Save money when you can.

The QR code measures a little over 1 inch square and comes with a call-to-action and URL.

Notice the little symbol right after the word scanning.  If you look at the small print at the bottom of the display, you can read some brief instructions regarding QR codes and scanning them on your mobile device.
