Generic Product Naming ‘ Fails’
I had to stop by the grocery store yesterday and pick up a few things. I have always gotten a kick out of the “off brand” or “store brand” products name their stuff. Some of the names are pretty good. Others, not so much.
Malt-O-Meal cereal does a pretty good job. Their version of Kellogg Froot Loops is called “Tootie Fruities” Their Version of Cinnamon Toast Crunch is called “Cinniman Toasters”
Wal-Mart’s Spam rip-off is called just plain “Luncheon Meat”. What is Luncheon anyway?
Safeway has a knock off Dr. Pepper called….Dr. Skipper.
I was looking for a small tub of butter when I saw this in Winn-Dixie:
It tastes like butter? Well, sure…why not. The name is acually trademarked like someone would want to steal it.
What funny off brand product names have you seen lately. Here is a funny list from Huffington Post.
