If you’re going to create something – as everyone must during some point of their lives – don’t create a new variety of something that already exists. Create something which you can create a variety from.
Creating a new flavor of Cheez-Its won’t get you far. I’m not even sure it will get you anything except a snack to munch on while you contemplate your next “genius” idea.
Maybe after a few new flavors of Cheez-Its you will decide to create an entirely original cracker snack instead. In which case, you can showcase all your new flavors with your cracker snack.
If that’s the case, or rather, if that’s the box, then I’m in. Just because something has 20 different flavors doesn’t mean I’ll choose it.
You know what people (you included) love? New. They love change, mishmash, and variety – after all, it’s the spice of life! The illusion is that they love a variety of originality. They don’t.
I’ll cut to the point and stick with the Cheez-It theme:
If you were given the choice between a new flavored Cheez-It or an entirely new cracker snack, which would you choose?
There is always more of a craving for something original than a new flavor, new type, new color of something already invented.
Stay Positive & I Call It The Flavor Of Originality
