Is Cap’n Crunch Dead?
There was an internet rumor setting the world on fire yesterday. People were saying that Cap’n Crunch, whose full name by the way is Cap’n Horatio Magellan Crunch, was going the way of the dinosaurs after 48 years of smiling at us from the cereal aisle . A world without the Cap’n? NOOOOOOOO!
What would we do without his sugar, corn, sugar and a bunch of other things none of us can pronounce in our bellies? So how did the rumor get started? People were saying that our First Lady Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign was taking aim at the beloved Cap’n. A website called Daily Finance said the food police had finally pressured Quaker Oats into getting rid of the sugary goodness that is Cap’n Crunch.
But raise your spoons and break out the milk! Because Quaker Oats talked to Ad Age and said the Cap’n is safe! Here is their official word on the Cap:
“Reports of Cap’n Crunch’s demise are greatly exaggerated. In fact, we just launched an official Facebook page for Cap’n Crunch. Now that our Cap’n Crunch brand is in the social-media space, our adult consumers can stay up to date on all things Cap’n Crunch.”
So if you were wondering what you were going to eat this Saturday morning, fear not! The Cap’n is here to stay!
