Hey, It's That Time Again!

Todays guessing theme is, Name These Products! I chose these particular food items (yes, they are all food items) because I liked the brand names, mostly. Whoever can identify each of these items (in English), will win the right to name my new cat when I get one. (Since I seem to have some critics in the naming department).

I think this one is too easy. They have words on them already.

The 'Toddy' is a blend of 'today' and 'toady', meaning that it's fresh toad puree.

The 'Superbono' with the grapes on it is clearly grape juice with lots of healthy bones added from all the boneless skinless chickens you see in the store.

The 'Pão de Queijo' is little breads for kids that always complain about food being 'Yoki'.

The 'Fermix' is a general-purpose ingredient fer all kinds of mixes.

The 'HittNuts' are for concert music fans to add to their party mix (which of course also includes 'Fermix'), thus amending it with some crunchy cebolla and salsa nuts.

And the last thing is clearly a bucket of love.

Oops. I didn't realize it actually made it. Connection problems.

Hi, I'm afraid after Serapio's insightful solution to your puzzle, I can't venture to add anything. But I think since evil neighbor dog speaks Portuguese, you should name your next cat something safe like "Biscuits & Gravy."

When we were kids, we used to ask our friends if they wanted a "Hertz Donut," and if they said yes we'd punch them in the arm and say, "Hertz, Donut?"

All of which is to say that if any ten-year-old ever offered me a HittNuts I think I'd decline.

Well, shockingly, the closest guesser was Serapio.

These products are Superbom Grape Juice (yes, Serapio, there are no bones in it, but "boms")Hittnuts Japanese Style Peanuts (Parsley and Onion flavored) (as Damian mentioned, not a likely brandname chosen by English speaking males), Famo garlic paste, Fermix yeast.

And, since there is no such thing as gravy in Portuguese, I am naming my cat Fermix. I thought of naming him "Bigger Dog" or "Dog Killer" but those names didn't sound that good in Portuguese either.

Thank you all (Serapio) for playing! Soon I will post you all a picture of Fermix. She, unlike her predecessor, prefers using her catbox over the floor. Also she doesn't bite. So, I miss Chule but not very much.

I was going to guess and offer serapio some competition, but then I started thinking up creative recipes for incorporating all of those ingredients and I made myself sick. So I didn't.
