Diluting the brand

Well, Cinnabon has done it. Forget the Large Hadron Collider for a moment and look upon the Cinna-Pretzel. Truly it is a terrifying wonder to behold.
Behold! The Cinna Pretzel.Cinnabon food scientists could not rest upon their laurels, for after the Cinnabon, the Minibon, Cinnabon Stix, and the Caramel Pecanbon, what was the next evolution? What, they asked themselves, after four video cards and five blades, was the best a man can get?

The answer, clearly, was the CinnaPretzel. Now I can eat two kinds of bread products at the same time, with frosting. They even include a cup specifically for frosting. Although I can’t tell if it’s a pretzel with frosting or a cinnamon roll in the shape of a pretzel.

Either way, this reminds me of Taco Bell launching bizarrely named food style products, when it’s the same combination of mystery meat, cheese, beans and a tortilla.

Update: Ugh. There’s technically six blades on the Gillette Fusion. Bewildering.

    All it needs is a half-pound 100% beef patty, some fajita vegetables, and a slathering of chocolate syrup.

    Btw, I did get a Gillette Fusion. Every blade worth it.

    Interesting Onion article from way before 5 blades actually happened. Creepy n’est pas?
