I don't care for these commercials at all. I think the are disrespectful. And why can't grown ups eat healthy fruit. I won't buy this product simply because I don't like their advertising.

 Angie- You know I/we have other grands besides the baby that is coming. If I EVER hear of any of our grands speak to their parents that way, I will pop their mouth! Ugghh!

**EDIT- When I said that I would pop one of my grandchildren, I would NOT. More of a knee-jerk reaction. A time out could be more effective.

This is exactly how I feel. I purposely have not bought this product because of the commercials. The kids are so dang disrespectful!  If I talked that way to my parents my butt would have been smacked and the lecture would come. I hate just absolutely hate this commercial.

Other than showing children being disrespectful to adults and stingy with their snacks, I don't like these commercials because it takes something as simple as a piece of fruit and designates it to a particular age group.  Why can't we all eat little seedless oranges?  You don't see the Cuties people or the clementine guild being so ageist.

 I agree with everyone. But, I could see some people maybe thinking it's cute. I don't! I think it's nasty and obnoxious!!

 I dont buy halos but I do buy cuties and others alike. My granddaughter Sophia will take a bag and eat them and even claim them as her own BUT she is not disrespectful about it. I think writing to the company and letting them know how disrespectful the children are is unacceptable and they could be losing consumers because of the disrespect.

Also if one of my 10 grandchildren or my daughter is disrespectful they would get in trouble. Not a pop in the mouth but time out.

I would have been smacked for that too. I hate the way commercials,a nd even tv shows, portray little smart mouthed brats as cute and acceptable. For anyone that watches GH, Spencer Cassadine, comes to mind.
