Advertising Age Magazine released its list of "America's Hottest Brands" for 2011.
Some of the list may surprise U.S. consumers – brands like "Pickle Juice Sport," a Brigham-Young-University-tested sports drink purported to relieve muscle cramps faster than competing beverages.
Also among the list are several foreign brands, like the Kia Soul, a popular small vehicle, and the Japanese clothing company Uniglo which debuted in Manhattan this year with a $9.90 denim jeans special.
Advertising Age's complete list of America's Hottest Brands can be found here.
