Original Message From: REDACTED
Originated by Consumer: Don't know whether you did this deliberately or your ad agency rep can't spell, but your Internet banner ad for Cinnamon Toast Crunch is misspelled. It reads "Life Life to the Cinnamonist"--this should be "Cinnamonest." The "ist" ending is a person, e.g., "perfectionist." You wanted the superlative suffix, as in "fastest."
Thank you for contacting General Mills. We appreciate your comments regarding our advertising for Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. Your opinion is important to us, and will be shared with our marketing and advertising staff.
We hope you continue to enjoy our products.

All Hail the Cinnamonist
We don't know why this makes us giggle so, but it does. Thanks to Frances L. for sending it along.
