* Of course, this Trope is TruthInTelevision to a point (the "point" in question being [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill as much as 63% sugar by weight]] in the case of Kellogg's Smacks), and as [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/briangalindo/25-cereals-from-the-80s-you-will-never-eat-again this article shows]], such stuff used to be a ''lot'' more popular. In fact, up until the 1980s, it was a general rule for most children-marketed cereals to be named "Sugar X". It was only after the rise in rates of childhood obesity and the backlash from a more health-conscious public that many brands dropped "sugar" from their names (i.e, "Sugar Pops" became "Corn Pops", "Sugar Crisp" became "Golden Crisp", and "Sugar Frosted Flakes" became simply "Frosted Flakes").

*** The choice of the color purple is likely a direct homage to ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', in which Calvin has said, "I won't eat any cereal that doesn't turn the milk purple."

** When he's trying to eat enough boxes (six) to send away for a CFSB propeller beanie, it proves too much even for him, and he tries to enlist help from Hobbes and his dad. Neither are willing, and one of the strip shows Calvin sitting with a bowl and box in front of him going "Man, I'm ''earning'' this."
