    I call these "bell peppers" (with color specified if necessary).

    "Peppers" covers a wider variety than just this type. In fact, if I just call something a "pepper," I am most likely describing a spicy chili pepper by default.

    This thread reminded me of how my daughter has been trying to find metal sporks.

    She loves sporks for some reason.

    So I found these for Christmas.

    No company branding anywhere, the font isn't actually Comic Sans, but it has a similar vibe, and not just one, but TWO exclamation marks after the product name.

    I can't figure out if this is brilliantly ironic, or if the designer just didn't want to do the job so asked their 8-year old to take care of it! :lol:

    (Now I want to see other products labelled with exclamation marks on their packaging. Exclamation marks make everything better...

    Shampoo!!

    Grade "A" Eggs!!!

    POTATOES!!!!

    Sorry, one of those days... ;) )

    I don't know if your daughter shares your love of Star Trek, and I'm several years too late on this (they came out/sold out in 2009, apparently) but I was just looking for something else entirely and stumbled across this:
