Yes your company certainly has deep pockets and I am almost certain that a lot of the battles for shelf space was fought in the companies boardroom.

Your past employer certainly has a great line of products and occupy a great amount of shelf space. As you probably know, your past employer has their HQ's in Plano, Texas

We're from Michigan and 100% of the people say "Pop"
Eastern Missouri = soda
Western Missouri = pop

I grew up drinking pop and baking with soda. It's funny how there are such distinct geographic lines determining dialect!

The LAST supper was around 2,000 years ago. Ever since then has it not been called dinner.

If I ask for a 7&7 I expect Seagram's Seven and 7-Up, not well whiskey and Sprite. Rum and Coke does not contain any Pepsi.

When asking for a specific product by a specific name one should get the requested product or an apology that they do not have it.

I do not believe that "supper" has not been used since the last supper. I will have to goggle the terms later.
