Food

At The Grocery Store

Ya ever walk around the grocery aisles and see products that just make you say, “huh”? Of course you do.

My last trip to the grocery store revealed some “interesting” product names, so I thought I’d share.

I don’t know about you, but grocery shopping often inspires me to cook awesome meals. When I look at all the multitudes of delicious food, I start thinking of ways that I can combine them. However, my last trip to the grocery store revealed some very uninspiring product names, so I thought I’d share.

I’m usually on the hunt for cheese, so imagine my confusion when I found this:
mozzasnack snacking cheese

Why is it called “Snacking Cheese”??? Isn’t ALL cheese inherently “snacking cheese”? Before now, I never thought of snacking on cheese before. What a great idea! Idiots.

Then I was in the cracker section:
roundy crackers

I totally dig the flavour, but the name? Could it be less inspired? How long did the marketing team bang their heads on the boardroom table until they came up with “Roundy”?

“What should we call them?”
“I don’t know!”
“I can’t think of anything either!”
“Quick! We have a deadline!”
“Ok ok! Roundy!”
“Perfect!”

Idiots.

Finally, I found the holy grail of worst names for a product ever:
beaver tuna

Yep. Beaver Tuna.

Your eyes do not device you: BEAVER TUNA

Sorry for the poor quality but I was convulsing while trying to focus. Really. I would buy Aardvark Tuna 100 times faster than Beaver Tuna. Beaver Tuna has to be THE least appealing name ever.

It’s on special though, so it might be a good time to stock up.
