“My work for Coco Pops provides the funds to fuel my heroin habit.”
Coco Pops (known as Choco Krispis, Choco Krispies, or Cocoa Krispies outside of the United Kingdom) is a leukemia-inducing breakfast cereal made from mini leprechaun turds, produced by Kellogg's. Despite being founded circa 362 B.C, the cereal has only been in circulation since 1958 and is a favourite food of spokesmen Nelson Mandela and Barry from Eastenders.
Coco Pops are thought to have been invented by the Greek Philosopher Aristotle who is cited to have said "Socrates is dead, Plato is too concerned with the metaphysical, I shall learn from their mistakes by making a shitty, unhealthy chocolate cereal snack, marketed by a tacky monkey. Originally Aristotle used ingredients such as dirt and Cillit Bang, due to sugar not being invented yet. The cereal went down a storm with both Greeks and Romans, with His Majesty Julius Caesar commenting "Good Zeus! I just did farted cum-bubbles all over this guys toga." After the fall of the Roman Empire Coco Pops were lost and forgotten, due to the average medieval diet consisting of shit, Fray Bentos pies, ethnic minorities, arrows, mud and wildebeast. Historians such as David Starkey have argued that that Tudor diet was so rich and filling, there was no need for breakfast cereals of any kind- let alone the 'pops- in this girl's period either. It wasn't until 1957 with the invention awful and cringey marketing schemes that Coco Pops were reinvented for a new generation, and successfully made it into the mainstream.
The original slogan for the mediocre cereal was "Nothing tops Kellogg's Coco Pops, Kelloggs Coco Pops". This reasonably shit tagline was used for many years. Kelloggs hoped that by repeating the brand name, the product title would be hammered into the numbed minds of the idiotic general public. They were right.
The second slogan was more popular, proclaiming "I'd rather have a bowlful of Coco Pops!" However this marketing ploy was quickly dropped because a complaint was made by Trading Standards, as it seems many people would not, in fact, prefer a bowl of coco pops. Most people like Cheerios. Or porridge.
The third slogan claimed "Coco Pops and Milk make a bowl full of fun." This slogan was much better received, as Kellogg's had acknowledged that Coco Pops were shit, and that they require milk to be even half tolerable.
edit Name change
At some point fairly recently, Coco Pops were changed to Choco Krispies in the UK after a meaningless public vote in which three people and a Vacuum cleaner registered their name preference online. Unfortunately the name change meant that stupid parents who feed their children sugary breakfast cereals could no longer find them on supermarket shelves.
In spite of the name change, Choco Krispies were still the same dire box of cardboard vole droppings they ever were. Most of the discerning British public were equally apathetic when they later changed the name back to Coco Pops. In celebration of this event, Kellogs made the milk even more chocolately, adding melatonin and charcoal to the ingredients. The orignal recipe was quickly resorted afer 42 children died.
