Is Quaker Killing Off Cap’n Crunch? [UPDATE]
Earlier this week, I reported that it looked like Cap’n Crunch was getting killed off.
It looked like Quaker and their parent company PepsiCo were phasing out the Cap’n for two reasons. One, the connection between cartoon mascots, sugary cereals, and childhood obesity. And two, his cereal isn’t selling that well any more.
Well…it’s not true. After the backlash about killing off the Cap’n, Quaker just launched a new Twitter account, @RealCapnCrunch. And right now it’s mostly the Cap’n replying to fans and telling them he’s not going anywhere.
