Why is Nestlé, the maker of Hot Pockets, recalling the former but not the latter?
The answer is simple, according to CEO Ulf Mark Schneider: consumers report that the combination of toenail clippings and birdseed actually enhances the taste of Pepperoni Hot Pockets.
“This is a classic case of serendipity,” says Schneider, “similar to Fleming’s discovery of penicillin. And the news gets better. Beginning in February we will be adding a clippings/birdseed mixture to our Toll House Cocoa Mix, resulting in our first ‘Crunchy Blend’ flavor.”
Winter evenings in front of the fireplace are about to get a lot yummier.
