* Wonka-brand "Scrumdiddlyumptious Bars" (actually made by Nestle). The word "scrumdiddlyumptious" was created by Creator/RoaldDahl, author of ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory''; "Wonka-brand" is a reference to the character of Willy Wonka from the book. It dates back to the [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory 1971 film adaptation]] -- which was greenlit specifically to serve as a marketing device for candy bars. So in this case, the word was not so much made up by marketing people as co-opted by them, despite the fact that Dahl was very likely ''[[{{Satire}} satirizing]]'' [[CompletelyMissingThePoint this type of language]]!

* ''Taco Bell'' commercials advertising "melty cheese" on their products. For fun, go to a fancy restaurant and ask for the fondue to be served extra melty. See if you don't get ejected.
** Subway sandwich restaurants have also started advertising their 'melty' cheese. (Can't I have the non-melty kind?)
** As have a few pizza chains.

Added DiffLines:

* The [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers first year]] of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' introduced the word "[[TotallyRadical morphenomenal]]"; that one faded out pretty quickly, though the phrase gets a [[ContinuityNod nod]] every now and then, usually during episodes celebrating series milestones. [[note]][[Series/PowerRangersWildForce Cole]] uses it during "Forever Red" when [[HeroWorshipper awestruck]] by the reality of battling alongside none other than Jason himself. Adam, who was introduced ''after'' "Morphenomenal!" fell out of use, [[PostMortemOneLiner gets a crack at it]] when he nearly disposes of Thrax, coincidentally the son of Rita and Zedd, in [[Series/PowerRangersOperationOverdrive "Once a Ranger."]] Then, [[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Tyler]] [[Recap/PowerRangersDinoChargeForgedUnderFire at one point]] describes his [[SuperMode T-Rex Super Charge]] as such.[[/note]]


* Nissan ran an advertising campaign around the concept of combining words to make new ones, such as "Luxurious" and "Durable" to make "Luxurable". The best was undoubtedly "Spafe" (a combination of spacious and safe". TopGear naturally pointed out that it was just "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Shiny and Bright]]"
