Meet the Ped Egg: A tasty (don't call it cheesy) recession success story


When they write the story of the Great Recession, future historians will probably overlook the Ped Egg. That's a pity, because the device, which shaves dead skin off your feet like a cheese grater, is huge, downturn-defying success.

In fact, the Ped Egg is the most successful product in the history of its maker, TeleBrands. The firm, which calls itself the leading television marketing company, has sold some $300 million worth of them, both through its infomercials and through its retail partners, company CEO AJ. Khubani tells DailyFinance. TeleBrands offers its "As Seen on TV" products through a number of retailers, including Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT), Staples Inc. (SPLS) and Sears Holdings Inc. (SHLD).
