2017 Product of the Year Winners

2017 Product of the Year Winners


Earlier this week we spent an evening at the high school learning about scheduling choices for our incoming 9th grader. The principal surveyed the group and asked who was here for the first time and many like us raised their hand. Then he asked who was here for the last time and many raised their hand. He proceeded to tell us that those parents will attest that these are the fastest four years of our lives. With a nephew already in college (when did that happen?), a niece graduating from high school this year (wasn’t she just in middle school yesterday?) and a daughter getting ready to start high school (gasp!), I totally get it.

Then it got my brain spinning about moving out, growing up and learning to make real-world decisions. The whole process of adulting can be so overwhelming, but we all walk into it more prepared than we realize. Hopefully all parents talk to their kids about money management, social responsibility, manners and work ethic. Even for those individuals who haven’t, there are many other things they’ve learned from their parents through osmosis.

As young adults venture out on their own, there is so much to learn about things like insurance and home ownership, but there’s a lot they already know about the basic day to day necessities! Like options for laundry detergent, air fresheners, toothpaste or facial tissues. We gravitate to what we know and have known our whole lives. As we mature and start making our own decisions, we solidify what we like and look toward replacements for the ones we don’t. Some are discovered by trial and error, but if you’re anything like me, awards such as Product of the Year can help me discover something new.

The Product of the Year program was established 30 years ago in France and currently operates in almost 40 countries. It’s a showcase of the best products launched between a designated time frame as noted in the rules. A global research company surveys over 40,000 American shoppers evaluating various criteria such as innovation, product satisfaction and uniqueness. It’s no surprise that many of this year’s winners are from trusted brands that have been around for years!
