Sunflower Oil


So, Frito-Lay has started to advertise on all its chip bags and commercials the fact that they cook their chips in sunflower oil. I have to admit, it's clever. I remember thinking when I was a kid that I didn't want McDonalds to cook my fries in vegetable oil because I hate the taste of vegetables. Well, it turned out that vegetable oil wasn't really that healthy for you. And guess what, neither is sunflower oil. But, I guess it'll make people feel better about their food choices. It's kind of like my dad. He wasn't really "drinking", since it was just dandelion wine. But, the whipping's still hurt just as much.

I bet the marketing guys said "Let do a commercial with bright colors. How about yellow?. Ok what ingredient is yellow. Sunflowers!!!"

hey, us marketing guys still have souls you know. We can also write up a 4-page thesis on how the color yellow will represent "youth and vitality" to the target audience.
