Product names

Well we were out today doing a bit of shopping before the Cup Final and In Sainsbury’s I noticed his chocolate bar at the check out..

Now don’t you think that ChocoLonely is a strange product name? It suggests to me a terribly sad friendless person hooked on chocolate. Wouldn’t Chocolovely or Chocoloveit or Chocolicious be better? And who the frig is Tony? What’s his name’s relevance? It sounds like a dreary name that someone on Sainsbury’s came up with to offer a cheaper rival to Cadbury’s. But when I say cheaper look at those prices? Needless to say I didn’t buy any.

But just to complete this short posting on odd brand names, I thought I’d show some very unlikely names, mostly badly translated overseas brands, for your amusement. Enjoy…
