Catchy food slogans like...er
Midnight Sun Sam and I were discussing food slogans, brought about by my saying that the new Milan in the Harbor East/Little Italy area is the only restaurant I can think of around here that has a slogan: "Where food meets fashion."
I'm sure there are others; I just can't think of them.
That led to Sam's suggesting food slogans as a good blog post, but the only one either of us could come up with was "Uh oh Spaghettios." ...
What did that mean, by the way? And how has it come to be something you say after goofing up?
The amazing thing was that Sam and I couldn't come up with any others.
Later I thought of Tony the Tiger saying about Frosted Flakes, "They're grrreat!" But that only came to mind because of all the Tiger Woods jokes floating around.
I asked my deskmate, Tim the Arts Critic. He mumbled something about the Oscar Mayer wiener jingle, but he couldn't remember it.
I guess slogans aren't a very effective way of marketing your food if no one can remember them. And as for the Milan slogan, I'm just not sure what it means.
