    Kraft are seeing $$$ before their eyes .... capture a whole new market share ... next will be the iSnack Shuffle or Waffle ???

    I sense an aggressive takeover of Apple.inc

    Is that where you get a random flavour every time you taste it?

    Terrible name. They should have just payed off Bakers Delight and used "Cheesymite".
    ...because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

    So, if this is version 2.0, where is the previous version? (And don't tell me it is the original Vegemite....)

    What a dumbass name for a food product.

    I saw talk of this on twitter and had no idea what people were on about. Now that I know, it's just embarrassing. I also had to check the calendar to see if it was April 1. Nup.

    WHat? iSnack 2.0? I thought you's were joking but w0w that's bad!

    If they like the tech side of things perhaps they should have left it as "2.0".

    BTW I think you're dead on there. I doubt very much Bakers Delight will let that go easily.

    BTW a Cheesymite once a week keeps your regular. It's true

    So now - instead of school kids referring to it as "Vaginamite" - the catch phrase will be "iSnatch" ?

    meanwhile, Kraft publicity agents are laughing and clapping.

    Everyone is talking about how crap the name is...Kraft will re-name it but the damage is done...the marketing department has done its job as there isn't a single Australian that doesn't know about this....some percentage will try it out of curiosity and that will be that.

    I bought a jar of that stuff a few months back. It's still unopened. I'm scared of what I might find in there.
