Subject: Rosencrunch & Guildenpop
This morning, I heard a Trader Joe's commercial on Boston's classical
station for a Hamlet related popcorn snack food. It was early, so I
thought I might have imagined the whole thing, but I later checked their
site and found the following:
To crunch or not to crunch?
Rosencrunch and Guildenpop
Clusters of Popcorn and Nuts
This nutty combination of pecans, almonds and sweet popcorn is to die
for! Indulge yourself in these crunchy clusters or share the sweet
sensation with the people in your hamlet. Get it? Hamlet.
This snack is true to its sweet nature (unlike the Shakespearean
characters). But its crunch is indeed "rosen," and its popcorn certainly
"guilden." The sweet coating marries the nuts and popcorn, creating a
duo that clusters together, no matter their foe. It has no artificial
colors or flavors and no preservatives.
I have no affiliation with Trader Joe's, etc.
