Welcome to the 100th review here at ScanThisGuide.com. After looking at and thinking about 100 different QR codes, you start to notice patterns of good and bad traits. In the next post, we will look at 7 tips you can use to supercharge your QR codes. For now, let’s go bananas…
Making effective QR codes takes work. To shortcut the amount of learning and work required, you can look at how others are using QR codes. By using the best techniques you find and avoiding the worst problems, you can make your QR codes be the best they can be.
Today we look at a QR code found on a favorite snack of many people, the banana. Yummy and inexpensive, the banana is enjoyed almost everywhere and on these bananas, you can find a QR code measuring about 3/4″ square. There is no call-to-action or URL but the QR code is front and center on the sticker. It’s impossible to see the sticker and not notice the QR code, even if you aren’t familiar with QR codes.
On a completely unrelated note, have you noticed the large, green looking banana-type fruit at your local grocery store? If you are looking at the same things I am, you would be looking at plantains. There are ways to cook plantains but for me, the chips are the bee’s knees.
Luckily, my favorite brand, Turbana, has a QR code on the back (check out the review here). If you haven’t eaten a plantain chip, you gotta try them. They are as crunchy as potato chips and much better in my opinion (less grease, made from fruit, Paleo diet approved).
Find some (I buy mine at Publix and Rouses but you can order them on Amazon
), buy some (a 7oz bag is about $2.50 locally, a little more online), eat some (try not to eat the whole bag at once…). Back to the review…
