Mascots can be pretty hard to get right. And sure, pretty hard is a bit of an understatement. Food mascots can be even harder. You’d think it shouldn’t be – just take your food and slap some cute googly eyes on it, but often that doesn’t seem to be the way to go, for whatever reason. So instead, we get decades of horrifying iterations of clowns trying to sell kids junky, sugary cereal. The modern day isn’t as polished as it could be, definitely no doubt about that. But they’re leagues and miles better than what came before. Like, sure, Baby Nut was lazy and pandering. And sure, they made the green M&M way too hot (we are kind of terrified by how many of us here at Cracked had our sexual awakenings caused by a freaking M&M). But after you get a load of Apple Guy and Krinkles the Clown, you're gonna come crawling back to The Colonel.
