DALLAS, Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — WINE CONDOM, #1 BUZZFEED’S “21 Awesome Products from Amazon to Put on Your Wish List” and brainchild of Millennial entrepreneur Mitch Strahan & his Dallas area stand-up comedian, single mom, Laura Bartlett, announced a new and improved wine bottle stopper design. www.winecondoms.com
“I’m super excited about ‘Wine Condom 2.0′ – the new design is virtually guaranteed to eliminate performance anxiety,” jokes Mitch.
The latest version of Wine Condoms contains food grade latex rubber with improved stretch properties. The new design now accommodates a variety of wine bottle sizes. “When it comes to wine, size matters,” jokes Laura. “Now you can easily whip a Wine Condom over a Magnum bottle, too.”
Wine Condoms’ newest bottle stopper is the result of reading hundreds of Amazon customer reviews. Although most customers were perfectly happy with the original 2014 design, a few of the 4.7 star reviews expressed a desire for a more pleasurable user experience.
Wine Condom “Scalpers” Hope to Profit from Limited Christmas Inventory
In past holiday seasons, Wine Condoms “scalpers” have capitalized on the company’s “Out of Stock” holiday status and have resold Wine Condoms online for a whopping $60-$80 USD. “You’d think we were trading in cryptocurrency (Bitcoin), not condoms,” laughs Bartlett.
Wine Condoms credits its growing popularity worldwide from the increase of wine consumption overall in America, including the increasing number of Millennial wine drinkers (especially women) who are more cost-conscious and appreciate the products unpretentious and humor driven approach to wine drinking.
Pricing and Contents
Each Wine Condom is $10 USD – packaged in a tuxedo black luxury gift box with a gold foil embossed tagline “Protection for Wine Lovers” and contains 6 bottle stoppers individually wrapped in gold foil pouches. Each Wine Condom may be used more than once and fits regular and Magnum size wine bottles.
About Wine Condoms
WINE CONDOMS offer an alternative to traditional wine stoppers by resealing bottles from the outside rather than the inside. The idea was birthed when Bartlett lost the original cork and used Saran Wrap + rubber bands. “We both thought it looked like a condom, a Wine Condom,” laughs Mitch. “Yep, the Wine Condom was ‘conceived’ late one evening on a cluttered kitchen counter,” jokes Laura.
What started out as a just a joke soon proved to have advantages over conventional wine stoppers; mainly they sit flush with the rim of the bottle, thereby making it fit easier in refrigerator doors & shelves. Mom & son have seen their stopper skyrocket in popularity around the world with customers as far as the UK, Japan, Netherlands and of course, Land Down Under, pun intended.
A Socially Conscious Company
Wine Condoms is a proud supporter of Charity Water, an organization that provides safe, clean drinking water around the world. Each box contains the message: “Congrats! You just turned Wine into Water!”
