Snap, Crackle and Pop (Rice Krispies) Vs. Cool Spot (7-Up)


The three elf characters were originally designed by illustrator Vernon Grant and made their debut in 1933. The names of the elves are derived from a Rice Krispies radio ad. The ad said "Listen to the fairy song of health, the merry chorus sung by Kellogg's Rice Krispies as they merrily snap, crackle, and pop in a bowl of milk. If you've never heard food talking, now is your chance." Inspired by this ad, Grant drew three elves and named them Snap, Crackle, and Pop. He brought the characters to Kellogg's, who bought them on the spot. In the United States and Canada, opinion varies concerning Crackle's occupation, but Snap is always portrayed as a baker and Pop as a soldier.


The early 1990s gave way to a new 7 Up mascot known simply as "Spot." This was derived from the red spot in the 7 Up logo which would come alive and perform lively antics in TV commercials. Spot maintained a simple look of black sunglasses with white gloves and sneakers, and often, multiple Spots would work together. Various Spot merchandise was produced during this time, and in 1993, the character had a video game spin-off titled Cool Spot.

Cool Spot, because the two games made with the character were pretty decent.

Cool Spot's sausage fingers are a deal breaker.  The three pixies get my vote.
I'm all out for kicks...and every inch of me spells EXCITEMENT!

Another sitch like the Joe Camel one, I only remember this tedious mascot for 7-up.

So my vote goes to the little rice elves.

No contest.  Snap, Crackle, and Pop are cultural icons.  Cool Spot just makes me think of uncomfortable post-coital sleeping arrangements.
