Plenty is the new Bounty


Could this be the stupidest name change since Jif/Cif? Discuss.

What's the point? Of the name change, not the discussion... I liked Bounty, Plenty is a more common word, boring... Again the name, not the discussion! LOL!

My feelings exactly. I imagine there must be a good reason for this change, because I really can't see why anyone would think that Plenty is a good name for kitchen roll (or anything else for that matter).

When I first saw it on the supermarket shelves I thought it was a cheap brand! LOL! If it wasn't for the colours and design that appeared familiar (and the fact that my eye sight is good enough to read the small print), I'd never have bought Bounty again...

Hey, are these guys borrowing our trade mark? ;)

@ Mediterranean Kiwi: You and me and the rest of the world. I still call it Jif.

@ Anonymous: You're kidding me, right?!! This is what I miss for not watching TV...

@ Per Stromsjo: It looks like it, doesn't it? Haha :-D
