Classic Childhood Cereals - Sneaky Advertising
As a child, I loved sugary cereals. But including the word sugar (as well as terms suggesting sugar, e.g. "honey") as part of the name of a cereal went out of vogue.
They had to change their persona. So they started to say they were the tasty part of a healthful breakfast -- a breakfast that included such things as buttered toast and orange juice, perhaps a little bacon.
But the healthful breakfast would have been none the worse off with elimination of the cereal!
Also, cereals started incorporating vitamins, added artificially. Then the cereal would be nutritious, right? Well vitamins, such as the ones put into cereal are nearly as cheap as dirt.
Yes, sneaky advertising. Funny, I think commercial enterprise hasn't learned much over the years...
