It is false advertising for a product to call itself something that it doesn't contain. There is a lot of false advertising in the cereal industry, for example Fruit Loops doesn't exactly contain fruit. Honey Nut Cheerios probably just has a better ring to it than Honey Cheerios, even though they shouldn't mislead the public.
I thought Honey Nut Cheerios had nuts in it. It probably doesn't even have honey it it. It is defenatly false advertiseing to call something honey nut when there are no nuts in it. Most cearals are a description of what is in them or at least what they taste like
No, this is not false advertising. I strongly believe that Honey Nut Cheerios don't contain nuts. This is as the manufacturers say. The Bureau of standards have proved and confirmed this. We should therefore not doubt this simply because it has got nuts on the the name. It is a mere name.
Although the fact that Honey Nut Cheerios do not in fact contain the eponymous Nuts, this is far from the worst example of false advertising in the cereal and grocery world. Consumers have larger issues that they should be worried about, trans fats, sugars, sodium etc that are a far bigger worry than lacking nuts.
