I don't know about you, but when I was a kid I used to love waking up early in the morning, and before plopping my butt down and turning on the TV for an extended cartoon-watching session, toasting as many pieces of white bread I could find and opening up a tub of margarine. I'd slather the weird, butter-like product all over my terrible-for-you-not-really-a-breakfast-breakfast and munch on it endlessly until re-runs of The Chuckle Brothers started playing.
As a kid, I didn't really know the difference between margarine and butter, just that butter is supposedly bad for you and that margarine managed to spread a lot, lot better even when it was cold. The one thing I never found all that peculiar was a child, though, were the monikers these food companies would come up with in order to get their products to stand out.
Margarine companies have been known to use some pretty ridiculous names to get the point across that their margarine tastes just like butter. In fact, Twitter user @DaisyOwl discovered that they sum up the five stages of grief pretty accurately...
As you can imagine, Twitter users found the post hilarious.
I can't believe we never noticed this, but sometimes, all it takes is a brave individual to stand up to "big food" and put them on blast for their asinine naming conventions. OK so it's not that serious of a transgression, but it is pretty hilarious that this guy pointed it out.
I wonder if artificial jam or syrup or honey companies do the same thing. Or even better, if organic food companies, in the future, will start extolling the benefits of their all-natural products to a mass of consumers who have been conditioned to eat the fake stuff.
"I can't believe it isn't partially hydrogenated soybean oil!" or stuff like that. Crazy.
