Scrapple Jacks

Apple Jacks cereal have very little actual apple in them. That's why they don't taste like apples. Perhaps Scrapple Jacks has very little actual scrapple in it. Blaisepascal (talk) 00:53, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

While they may have little apple in them, I don't know that that's necessarily the reason they don't taste like apples (as I noted in the Apple Jacks comic itself, the wiki page for the cereal alleges they are supposed to taste like Apple and Cinnamon. Other candy or cereals that have fruit flavours (for example, the candy Runts) rarely have any of the actual fruit in them, but still have flavourings that are designed to taste like that fruit. The question is whether Kellog's used poor flavouring in their cereal, I suppose. TheHYPO (talk) 14:33, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps large food companies with massive advertising campaigns brand their products in ways that may make them appear healthier than they actually are. Iggynelix (talk) 14:37, 5 August 2023 (UTC)

I came here to make a "Honey Bunches of Goatse" joke, but I feel it may be in bad taste. 18:26, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Cereal Meats

Many cereal based meat alternatives are marketed using parodies of meat product names. This is generally not considered disgusting, even by those not interested in vegetarian product lines.

Possibly Randall is exploring the difference by inverting the product and ingredient type. -- Eltimbalino (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
