Getting more than sugar from an Ochocinco Cereal Box

Posted on: September 30, 2010

Most cereal companies put celebrities on their cereal boxes to sell more cereal. Chad Ochocinco is no exception. However, recently the cereal box displaying Ochocinco’s picture has a nasty phone number listed on the box.

By nasty, I mean the phone number goes to a phone-sex line!  The phone number is supposed to connect callers to “Feed the Children”, which benefits from sales of the cereal. However, the box has the wrong toll-free prefix that sends callers to a seductive sounding woman who makes risqué suggestions and asks for a credit card number.

Now Cincinnati based Kroger Company is pulling all of the Ochocinco cereal boxes from its grocery shelves. Obviously this was an error and new cereal boxes with the correct toll-free number will be showing up on shelves soon.
