Product Over-Saturation

I wrote some time ago about my reaction to the ever-expanding lines of products upon my return to America. It seemed every product under the sun had expanded to 6 or 8 new flavors, or styles. Here's another one... M&M's. The classic chocolate candy is coming out with eight new "limited edition" flavors (read: if they sell well, then they become permanent). THIS is the kind of thing that overwhems me when I walk into the grocery store. I mean c'mon, do we really NEED strawberries and cream Pepsi?

Stop bashing Strawberries and Cream Pepsi: it's good! Have you tried the Black Cherry/Vanilla one?

what? new flavors of m&ms? aren't they just chocolate or peanut or almond or peanut butter or crispy or dark....yeah.
oh dear.
i'm with you on the scary pepsi! ditto on the weird new berries-n-cream dr. pepper. i haven't tried it, but i'm creeped out.

I'm still recovering from the cereal aisle.

Okay, I have to admit... I think strawberries and cream Pepsi tastes good. But do we really NEED it?
