It’s Not Froot

We have a problem.

I thought I was the sort of person who paid attention to things. Then I had breakfast this morning. That breakfast was the Kellogg’s cereal, Froot Loops.

Looking at the box, for the first time I noticed it wasn’t Fruit Loops. I knew it didn’t really taste like fruit but I thought the colors paid loose homage to the potential that fruit might have been involved–somehow.

Now, I’m just not sure how I can maintain my word nerdom with this glaring mistake. Froot isn’t really a word. The closest you get to it being used outside of the cereal box is the album title for a Welsh singer.
