Lazy candy.

Lazy candy.

Seriously, Hershey’s? Another candy bar with a lazy name? You need to team up with McDonald’s, since they are just brimming with adjectives. You’re “Thingamajig” could be a “Cocoa-encased caramel crispy crackle”. You’re just not trying hard enough.

They’re called adjectives, Hershey’s. Adjectives.

    I agree. That’s just lazy. They could have consulted the people who name fireworks: “Happy Fun Crackle Joy with Report”

    Or they could have asked Tim. He’s good for coming up with new adjectives…and even candy bar names…

    I love candy, but I’ve never tried either one of these. I wonder if it’s because of the names….those names sound more like something you’d find in a hardware store…not a mouthwatering treat. So Hershey, please don’t just add adjectives to the current name…scrap them all together, as Lauren has suggested. We don’t want to see these on the shelves anytime soon.

      I try every new candy bar that comes out, because what if it’s amazing? You’d never know if you didn’t eat it. Plus, it’s a great excuse to buy candy: “I HAVE to eat this. I’m doing it in the name of science!”

      But I haven’t had a Thingamajig yet. I should get one today.

    King-size really is not that much bigger than the regular size. If you’re gonna call something king-size, then make it B-I-G!
