👋 Before you go

Recently, WK Kellogg CEO Gary Pilnick attracted controversy after claiming that, at a time when many Americans are struggling to make ends meet, those in search of a cheap meal might want to consider eating cereal for dinner.

“If you think about the cost of cereal for a family versus what they might otherwise do, that’s going to be much more affordable,” Pilnick told CNBC. The comment was part of a discussion responding to an article from the Wall Street Journal that claimed Americans now spend about 10% of their income on food.

While the comments sparked discussion and debate online, with many internet users concerned about the idea of putting forth cereal as a dinner option. 

One such internet user is TikTok user Julie (@hoolie_r), who went viral after stitching together the CNBC interview with a commercial Kellogg’s ran in 2022.

Hey, um, what stage of capitalism is this?” she asks before playing the clips.
