What's Wrong With This Picture.....
So, have you seen the commercial for Activia Yogurt, now with fiber?

You know the commercials. Yogurt with the culture "bifadis regularis" to help you stay regular.

Did you know that in Northern MN, outhouses at camp grounds are called Biffys? When I first heard the name of the yogurt culture, I instantly thought that the person who created it must have been from Northern MN. They went on a camping trip and ate so much dehydrated camping food that it caused them to not be able to go. So, they came home, developed the culture and said, "...well, this will certainly help me regularly go to the Biffy!"

OK...I digress.

Anyway, I see a commercial last night for the new form of Activia--now with fiber!

Does anyone else see what I see?

Activia is supposed to make you go.
Fiber is supposed to help you go.

Why would I need to add fiber to my Activia yogurt? It's already supposed to help me go. Is it not doing that?

I don't get it why the fiber is added. What I do know is that I won't be eating it. I am happy with my favorite brand o' yogurt, thankyouverymuch.

It seems to be the new trend in food marketing-mentioning that it has fiber in it. Again, they think we won't notice their tricks. Either that are they think a lot of us are really bound up as my grandma used to say.

But Jamie Lee Curtis really makes it sound like fun...like something we could enjoy together.
