General Mills CEO Jeff Harmening revealed in an interview today that not only was the scent of Cheerios inspired by the smell of a human ballsack, but the food was originally intended for dogs.
“Next time you’re near a box, take a whiff. You’ll smell the junk funk,” Harmening stated. “We took that pungent musk and toned it down to a noticeable hint of taint and balls. We incorrectly assumed dogs would go crazy for that smell. Luckily for General Mills, Americans love Cheerios!”
Harmening also disclosed that the idea for Honey Nut Cheerios came to him during a wild night of food play in bed with an adventurous woman.
