Yesterday was a much better day, no spaghetti. After a bit of trouble on start up even the computer behaved.
I have noticed a dramatic change in cereal adds on TV.
They used to emphasize how good they tasted and that they were fun to eat.
Cereals aimed at children had all those delightful creations. You know like Snap, Crackle, and Pop or that wacky bird that went coocoo for Cocoa Puffs. Then there was Tony the Tiger, Captain Jack, and Frankenberry.
Cereals were a treat to eat and fun for the kids.
Times have changed now cereals are for your health. According to the adds they have an entire days supply of vitamins, can lower your cholesterol, are good for your heart, and will give your children added resistance to disease. In other words now they are a treatment not a treat.
Keep in mind these are not new magic cereals. These are the same old cereals we have always had but now they will make you healthier and even make your kids smarter.
Why the change?
Because today health sells, and cute jumping Tigers don’t.
Everybody is health conscious . So you sell your product as healthy.
As a good parent don’t you want your kid to be smarter and healthier?
Of course you do.
So you buy the cereal that will give them better health and more brain power.
Don’t you want to lower your cholesterol .
Of course you do so you eat Cheerios. Better than taking pills.
Well I have to quit this entry and go eat my Rice Krispies . I need to boost my immune system and they do.
It says so right on the box.
