  4. Yeah, it really bothers me too! but i guess the people who created the box were aiming it towards the ever-growing obesity rates.. or something? i don't know, it's weird :S

    hey let's do the bar-swap!! :) what's your favorite flavor?
    by the way i'll try to post an english translation in some of my posts :)

  6. okay... i understand what they are TRYING to do here, but they failed miserably. how about "healthy" you, or "feel good" you, or "happy" you? "less" you? who strives to be less? dumb. agreed.

  7. *reads post and feels something tickle her ears, puts right hand up slowly only to find steam... well... steaming out of her ears. She then hears a kettle start to screech and boil then realizes that was actually the kettle in the kitchen and needs to stop being influenced by cartoons*

    I'm not okay with that little slogan...
    I am however okay a post from you :)

  11. It definitely bothers me. What an absurd way to put it!! Why not: More grain, a healthier you!!?

  12. nope. when I first heard this slogan on the tv ad. I felt that there was something seriously wrong with it. it seems to be promoting diet instead of health- not cool.

  14. Is that for real? I think that must be the worst marketing technique ever.

  15. I live in Europe, and I'm so glad right now because that...is just terrible! Something has to be done, because this is so stupid, so annoying. Who are these marketeers?

  16. Yes, indeed it does.This is why when cheerios (assorted flavors) were recently 2 for 1 i put these back and grabbed some of their Frosted Brethren. Then i looked at the multigrain box and said... "These are gonna taste better anyway!"
    However, i think the slogan of the Honey Nut Varity make up for it:
    "Be Happy, Be Healthy!"

  17. I freaking HATE ads like that! Also hate the "jeans that instantly slim you" ad. Like, really?

    ReplyDelete
  18. ridiculous. LESS you? why is that something to strive for?

    ReplyDelete
  19. eww thats really obnoxious, what a bad message!

  20. I'll never buy Cheerios again T_T.

    Way to lose customers, General Mills!

    No wonder people accuse you of being an anorexic if you dare to say that you prefer WW bread over White.>_<
