i noticed that cinnamon grahams (ew) are now called 'curiously cinnamon'.

don't you think that is the most clumsy name for a product? it sounds like it should be 'curiously cinnamon-y'.

i'm not sure but i think it is because an adjective should follow 'curiously'.

cinnamon isn't an adjective though, right?

arrrghhhh. why does this bother me so much? i need help.

Because it's just a stupid name? I don't tend to be curious about cinnamon. I like cinnamon in things, but yes, you're right, if it were anything, it should be 'curiously cinnamony' which isn't a real word!

Not you that needs help, it's the marketing department!

We just call them Cinnamon Grahams to save the pedant in me going mad smile.

they are there every morning, mocking me.
i can't wait 'til dh finishes the box.

who thought of that though?!

actually it is quite a clever marketing ploy, i have been talking about it quite a lot recently <obsessed>

Well... cinnamon can be an adjective eg cinnamon toast or indeed cinnamon grahams ie describing/ qualifying the noun it precedes.

However, I agree the name (&product!) sucks!

To get you even more riled, can you imagine how much money and effort went into the rebranding?

also, what are those weird patterns on them?

but do you think this was the desired effect?

Dreadful, dreadful name. There's nothing curious about it.

My dd2 (3) calls it 'Dad's toasty cereal', which I think is a much better name
