Alan had been working his way through a box of Froot Loops for a few days and kept commenting on the red froot loops "on steroids." We'd laugh every time one of us would pour a bowl and joked about the different scenarios that must have been happening in the factory. And then my curiosity got the better of me and I had to check it out. I looked at the cereal box and noticed right there on the front in huge letters it said "Colossal Froot Loops" along with a picture of a GIANT red froot loop. It was more fun when we thought it was an accident and not some stupid marketing ploy. Would that really get people to buy the product? I'm trying to imagine being on the cereal aisle....."Let's see, I could buy these here copy-cat fruity loops in the bag....they're just as good, less expensive, you get more for the money....but WAIT! Original Froot Loops have these new colossal red froot loops! What was I thinking? I can't believe I was nearly seduced to buy the knock-off and therefore save money. That was a close one."
