when i first saw this i was at a loss for words. the more i obsessed on it, many questions came to mind. most importantly, who is the boss of the ‘marketing genius’ who allowed this product to come to market and, has he / she been fired yet? if not, why? also, does the management of pepperidge farms seriously think there are human beings on this planet who may honestly consider goldfish a vegetable source? is it possible that even one person may fall for this insanity? lastly, and most importantly, when pepperidge farms management conceptualized this new food item, why didn’t they just go all out and tout all the nutritional benefits of the actual fish? rather than simply promoting goldfish as a ‘baked’ (translation – healthy!), ‘natural’ (translation – healthy!) vegetable source (translation – healthy!), why didn’t they add just a drop of dehydrated fish scale to the recipe and make it a good source of protein and omegas 3 & 6 too? that way it could be a complete meal.
maybe i could get a job in the pepperidge farms marketing department. they’ll pay me good money and i’ll make a television commercial for my sea & garden cheddar goldfish. there will be a family of four sitting at the dinner table. the mom and dad will have plates with salmon, broccoli and salad. the children will be eating sea & garden cheddar goldfish, a good source of vegetables, protein and omega 3 fish oil! everybody will be happy and smiling.
i’m updating my resume.
