Re: Wheaties?

I emailed Wheaties and have received no response; you'd think they'd have the professionalism to at least respond with a P.C. answer...

Re: Wheaties?

Here is the response I got back:

General Mills will not have a Wheaties box featuring the 2010 World Champion New Orleans Saints football team. Of course, we congratulate the team on this great achievement.



We receive many requests from consumers asking us to feature teams and athletes on a Wheaties package. Most are exceptional athletes and would represent Wheaties very well. But it is simply not possible to honor them all.



Our most recent Wheaties Super Bowl Commemorative package honored the 2003 World Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.



Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We welcome your feedback, as it is critical to General Millsí success. It is through communications such as yours that we become aware of concerns and preferences of our consumers.


Sincerely,

Amy Peters

OK, Miss Peters. So the Bucs deserve more respect than the Saints, ehh? It's Kellogs for me. Wheaties suck anyway.

Re: Wheaties?

They're probably too cheap. Everybody who appears probably would have to get paid...or they are afraid of being sued by Drew! j/k, unwad your panties, 27.

After reading a post by Danno the other day, I have become "..." conscious.

Re: Wheaties?

OMG I just saw the last WNBA champs on the Wheaties box. I guess it's clear Wheaties just doesn't do the NFL anymore. More Lakers championships will have to suffice for me .

Maybe we can start a campaign to get on Campbell Chunky Soup can labels since they're an NFL sponsor. Especially the "Grilled Chicken and Sausage Gumbo", put a picture of Gumbo the Dog on there!
