Did you know that Cheerios were originally called CheeriOats?  The name was changed to its current form after a trade dispute with Quaker Oats. 

Which do you prefer, Cheerios or CheeriOats?

    I’ve heard of that before. It won’t change my opinion towards it, I still love it. Though CheeriOats just makes it sound that much more healthier.

    That is a kind of fun fact! I do like “CheeriOats,” though — it sounds more… cheery? I also like the thought of Honey Nut CheeriOats. Kinda cute.

    I kind of like “CheeriOats” – the T serves as kind of an anchor, reminding that you’re talking about a cereal, and not pretending to be an American character pretending to be British.
