I guess there is such thing as too generic.

    Strangely, I often wonder what would it be like if every item at the supermarket’s generic brand was named as the item it represents: “Spaghetti”, “Soda”, “Cheese”.

    I’m sure CocoaPeanutButterSpheres.com will be available for a long time.

    Sure, you say that now. But I think that we can all agree that when kids ask for their favorite cereal, they prefer to break it down formally rather than by name. :>

    Reminds when I was living overseas and bought the generic version of cocoa puffs.

    I didn’t notice this until I got home, but the box depicted a native African, bone through his hair, holding a spear.

    OUCH!

    lol
    very true and made me chuckle
    however, you know as well as I do, if kids are doing the food shopping they’ll buy reeses puffs
    however mum or dad do the shopping and I’m looking at the $3.17 price tag instead of the $4.79
    $3.17 wins every time lol

    I kinda like grape nuts cereal… I wish I could upload a pic of the generic box I bought at the store the other day…but it’s called “Nutty Nuggets”.
