    Nom nom!

    When I first read about the Ice Cream Sandwich, I thought Google was coming out with food products. Really, though, why was it named Ice Cream Sandwich?

    I read that it is an internal thing that they have at the Google headquarters... They come up with dessert names in alphabetical order and they pick the option that seems to be catchy enough to attract customers. It's a combination of originality and oddity, in my opinion...

    While I agree the names are indeed catchy, it speaks a lot about our society. I mean, their thought is dessert to attract consumers. No wonder the obesity rates are so high. :/

    The obesity rates are high because people seem to have zero self control in pretty much anything they do, this is also why we have hoarders and TV shows that show "hoarders". I love the idea of a catchy name and I seriously doubt the name of something is going to create a mass effect on people who are all skinny then within a few months balloon up in size.
