Blindingly obvious danger Award goes to...



Kellogg’s and Lego, for thinking candy in the shape of plastic toy bricks would be a good idea.


Sometimes, even the biggest multi-million dollar companies with the most creative minds, need to just stop, take a deep breath, and ask themselves ‘Is this really a good idea?’ Fun Snacks (aka Snack Stacks) was definitely one of those moments. We suggest Kellogg’s go back to the drawing board and work on getting kids eating healthier foods, not edible toy imitations.

  1. It is unbelievable, how stupid big companies like Lego and Kellogg can be.
    Kellogg does not just advertise sugary cereals and try and make us believe it they are good for our kids. Now they're also trying to make our kids choke on toys - or sweets for that matter, well they wouldn't know, would they?

    Well done, CI, I hope Kellogg will apologize for being so mindless and irresponsible!

  2. People who think this is a good award should take a look at the comments on this page: http://www.cbc.ca/consumer/story/2008/12/02/funsnacks-consumers.html#articlecomments. People figured out that if kids can't tell the difference between the candy and the toy then they are too young to have either.
