With a name like that...

"J.M. Smucker Co., maker of Jif peanut butter and Pillsbury baking dough, agreed to buy Procter & Gamble Co.'s Folgers coffee business for about $3 billion in stock, to complement its breakfast and dessert businesses."

Let's see. What are the naming options? Smolgers? No that doesn't sound quite right. What else?

(Note: Updated based on (limited) research that indicated I had failed to connect in version #1)

How about geriatric, cause that's the target market for Folgers. That or Hillbilly. Who the heck drinks Folgers? Seriously?

What happened to your post about The Brand Timeline Portrait from Jane Sample (she works at MacLaren McCann in Toronto, BTW) - was going to link to it?

Thanks Martin - being in SF - are you heading to the PSFK conference on July 17th?
