We can all rest now, a very popular cereal has finally made it possible for us to eat together because as you know, this was a problem before their ingenuity kicked in.
I admit, I like to read stuff while I eat and okay, do other stuff. Newspapers and magazines (and now online media) is great but I also enjoy reading the boxes that products come in. i.e., food, soap, toothpaste whatever. This is where the real marketing gems can be found and how these products are not just effective, but actually are changing the world, one family at a time.
So I’m reading a box of Cheerios and learned that Phil, a member of the Cheerios “team” (don’t you love that?) found out that his daughter-in-law cannot consume gluten.
Nothing to make light of and actually I commend Phil and the Cheerios “team” for trying to do something to help her and so many others.
So after “a lot of late nights and hard work” they discovered a way to separate their oats which are naturally gluten-free from the wheat, rye and barley that often mixes in during the farming process.
Great! Now this popular brand of Cheerios is now gluten-free.
Here is the best part: Now that we have “Cheerios for Everyone” we no longer have to let dietary restrictions get in the way of families spending time together.
How awesome is this!
Everyone knows that families cannot eat at the same table if everyone is not eating the same exact thing.
They must retreat to separate quarters in the house.
My son Gaius has an egg allergy so we make him eat outside. It’s a real issue for us because we love eggs and it gets very cold here in the winter. If only we could enjoy our eggs and still let my poor son eat his waffles at the table with us.
Perhaps some other well-known company will have a breakthrough that will rid the world of egg allergies so we can finally eat together as a family.
Until then, we will just wave to him while he eats his waffles, outside. At least the birds seem to enjoy it.
All I have to say is how much do these marketing folks make, who is really being touched by these sentiments and where do I apply? I have a great idea on how Triscuits can increase our dietary and also our moral fiber…
