Quite a long time ago, Christopher told me that I would notice that generally, there were no cartoon characters in blatantly unhealthy food products, at least in our area (don’t know about elsewhere) because of some law or something where you could only do this for foods that were, or somewhat purported, to be healthy. So, you’d see Elmo in grape tomatoes and apple juice, Mickey Mouse in snack trays with carrots and celery and some dip, and certainly many cartoon characters in fruit snack boxes made with some fruit juice in them, and also in some cereal boxes. But, other than perhaps Kinder Joy eggs, that was mostly it.
Recently, there must have been some change because suddenly I see cartoons on all kinds of actual junk foods. In this case, cookies:
It’s actually really unusual so it definitely caught my eye. And I know it’s bad but I grew up with cartoons in all junk foods really so it makes me kinda happy. 😅
That aside, I spotted the cutest Mandalorian lunch box at Publix:
Maybe I’ll buy it eventually, but for now, I resisted.
