Riffles Roundly Rebuffs Ruffles' Ridges.

I wrote this post just to be able to write that headline. There were not enough stories out there today using the letter R. So, I thought I'd round up a few.

Turns out that Pepsico lost a battle in the EU. The European Union's Court of First Instance denied Frito-Lay's application to the EU to trademark Ruffles across the entire EU (decision not yet published).

Seems that there's a German potato chip known as Riffels that could result in consumer confusion.

There'd be way too many R's.
