Who thought up this product name?

Creme Filled Long John CloseupCreme Filled Long JohnI’m imagining a room filled with marketing folks. They’re all sitting around, trying to come up with a clever name for a brand new snack cake product they would like to launch. One of the ‘brainstormers’ jumps up and yells “I got it!” We’ll call this giant Twinkie-like snack cake a “Creme Filled Long John”. And the rest is history. And someone paid good money for a ridiculous product name such as this…

I found this tasty treat while buying a soda at a gas station while driving down to North Carolina.

    BTW ever trouble shoot your site? The comment field runs into the side column on Opera. I know, who the hell uses Opera?

    If you would have seen the ingredients, you would have walked away slowly like I did. If you think a Twinkie will last 25 years….

    The Opera issue is news to me. I check the site out pretty thouroughly with Firefox, Mozilla and IE; I have a friend who’s an Opera weenie and he hasn’t expressed any issues. What version are you running?
