Maybe some of the moms who have children with autism can relate or even a child who may be picky. One of the quirky things my son with autism has is the brand names of certain foods. For example, Kraft Mac & Cheese, he knows the difference and it must be elbow noodles. 

Then Doritos changed their packaging for the Nacho Cheese! He is so down about it and this is what I found on the snack shelf in the pantry, lol at least he has a sense of humor. By the way he's eaten the last remaining bag. He claims the new bag taste different but I can't tell and I'm not a Doritos fan.

Interesting. My friend's son is not autistic, nor does he have any sensory issues, but he went through many years of brand preferences.

This was my first thought as well.

I think we're all on the spectrum in one way or another.

I love the note. It's like he's flipping the bird at the company.
