  1. Gotta love Silicon Valley types. “Brandless”. I remember when it was called the No Frills aisle. But hey, if a VC is going to cough up cash for it, more power.

    Also, Re: Oreo. Development costs for wacky Oreo flavors are next to nothing. You can put one developer on it, they solicit flavors from flavor houses, a simply pilot plant trial and they’re done. The Fireworks Oreo would be a little more complex – have to make sure the pop rock doesn’t break or dissolve during production. Still simple though.
