I don’t do a lot of hang regs but like all domain investors I go through my daily routine and as I come across something interesting I instantly check and see if it’s been registered. This week I found what I think is a pretty good name.
I was in Sam’s Club the other day and sitting in the fruit section was a fruit I hadn’t seen before. Apriums. Every Tuesday I hit Sams to pick up a case of my favorite fruit, pluots. It’s 75% plum and 25% apricot. I like it better than a plum because it’s a little more tangy and much firmer than a normal plum. Between that and bananas, I eat enough fruit to feed a family of 5. Evidently an Aprium is the opposite mix. Seventy five percent Apricot and 25% plum.
Like all “designer” fruit they sell it in a clam shell package and have them all in neat little rows. They ran $5.50 for 21 apriums but I was pretty sure I could eat at least 2 in a sitting so I little expensive for a fruit but not outrageous. And the taste? OK. I think they weren’t quite ripe when I bought them. I must say that every day they ripen they get a little better and until I get a fully ripen one I can’t really tell if they are going to be in my weekly fruit list.
So why did I register apriums.com? Because I’m a domainer. If I see an items in the store that’s new, not trademarked, and sold with fancy packaging, the first thing I’m doing is trying to register the domain. Aprium.com was taken but apriums was not. $7.67 later I own the domain. Like most of the domains I hand reg I have plans to do something with it but most likely won’t. Perhaps in the future I’ll use it to sell aprium trees. If you’ve ever had these chime in on how they taste.
