Marketing Gimmick

Was in Jusco after dinner the other day with Ethan when he saw this:

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that boys LOVE rockets! So when Ethan saw that Honey Stars now comes in new ROCKET shape, he pestered me to get that for him. Apa boleh buat, since he loves cereals I see no harm in getting him this as I usually get him the normal Honey Stars anyway.

But when I poured them into his lunch box today, I saw this:

Lots and lots of Honey Stars! Where are or should I say IS the rocket?

And then I saw this:

Alamak! That poor single rocket! It’s like finding for a needle in a haystack! I won’t even notice that THAT is a rocket if not for the picture on the box. I’ll just brush it off as one of the broken star pieces!

But Ethan enjoyed the STARS and that SINGLE rocket nevertheless. I packed him some cute bear marshmallows too today :D

As for me, I had THIS for breakfast:

And ended up with bloated stomach for the rest of the day =.=

    That’s their whole idea… to make the kids eat more in order to find 1 rocket. Finished already, ask daddy or mummy to buy summore :) My Chloe will always fall victim to those cute free gifts.These marketing gimmicks always work!

    What’s new? Trick the kids…and cheat the mums who will give in to their little brats. Must buy = must buy, no negotiation.
