The SHAPE of Things To Come
I haven't bought this cereal in a very long time , but my mother insisted , so it was my breakfast . While reading the cereal box I noticed that there is an internet voting campaign and people are heated about it . The focus - whether Shreddies should be diamond or square . Nothing else , no new flavour or anything , no frosting like they have in England , a simple and probably accidental 45 degree rotation of the weaves. I checked the grocery stores and in every one of them the Diamond Shreddies are more expensive than the ones in my bowl . What a marketing gimmick gone horribly genius!
When Post/Nabisco came out with this product , they advertised a "delicious new diamond shape." Okay , Nabisco , the only way a SHAPE can be POSSIBLY delicious is if we're talking Vida Guerra or Helena Bonham Carter and I see ZERO luscious ladies anywhere in the weaves .
This is ridiculous and people are lining up to buy more pre-packaged bullshit .
I'm off to look up stills from Planet Of The Apes and phone my therapist.
