It’s past fourteen o’clock where I live and I haven’t written anything random for a couple of hours now, so I thought it was about time.
The last couple of weeks, I’ve been playing with the idea that the characters on the bags have personalities and live in some kind of world (almost up to the point I wanted to write a story, or make a game, but then I -sadly- remembered I don’t really have time for either of those). I could ask the designers of the packaging what they have in mind when drawing them, sure, but what’s the fun of that?
So, in my interpretation, Mr. Berry (strawberry) is like a gangster boss dealing in powders and bottles and stuff. Mango (with his chopper) works for Berry, and you don’t want to mess with him. The banana girl and the chocolate guy are like a couple. Ms. Banana works in a night-club (the one of Mr. Berry, though she doesn’t know that) and Muscles (chocolate) is a really nice guy unless you touch his schmootzypoo. Apple Pie is a regular customer of that same club, he’s always mellow, smoking his cinnamon stick. Though he doesn’t really have any relation with any of the mains, he sometimes says hi but that’s about it (background character). I don’t really have anything for cappuccino, but maybe he could be like a runner for Berry?
I’ve tried coming up with names -and I do have some- but I’m not going to post 'em just yet as this post is getting a bit too weird already.
But that’s just my interpretation. What do you guys think? Did I drink just a bit too much jimmyjoy-plennyshake lately? Or have you also thought things like ‘Ha! That strawberry guy is da real MVP!’ or ‘Oohh… I’d do that bananana… ^_^’?
Please, tell me what you think; I’m really looking forward to reading what you’re able to come up with.
- Okay, I’ve talked with some colleagues about it, and apparently this is weird thinking. But hey, we’re eating powdered food; we can handle a bit weird, right?
- I don’t have anything for the vegan and sports variants, which bothers me more than it should…
- Now that I’ve written it down, I’d really like to try to make some sort of story from it. xD
