Eh, just slap a strawberry on it!
« on: November 15, 2013, 08:16:08 PM »
As I've been getting more into older gen ponies, I've noticed something. There are a few G3 ponies that I've been calling "strawberries and a thing" ponies. Strawberry Reef, Pepperberry...how did they come to be??

"A pepper shaker is too...plain."
"What, should I add some salt too? Coriander maybe? Parsley?"
"Nah, nah. What about a strawberry?"
"Oh, perfect!"

lol, thinking of G3 as an older gen is hard to wrap my mind around, but yes, there are many g3s that are full on head scratchers. I bet there are stories behind all of them. I didn't know this significance of waterfire until a hasbro rep told me. :p

"Strawberries and a thing!" XD

Even Holly Dash, whose name has nothing to do with strawberries, has one for a cutie mark! I know it's G4, but...

Maybe they noticed a higher rate of sales of "strawberry" ponies?  I like strawberry stuff... and pink stuff...

I guess pepper on strawberries is something people actually eat and really like. Perhaps the person who designed Pepperberry's CM/symbol liked it? I think it's interesting. Very unique. :frog:

It would seem that it's G3's version of G4's trend of adding 'Dazzle' to every stinking pony.

Don't forget Strawberry Sunset! And Rainbowberry! And Strawberry Surprise!

I must admit I always thought Pepperberry was a very odd combination.

I think I know. There is an event several times in the summer and fall in Rhode Island (where Hasbro is located) where they light little bonfires in little floating metal baskets on the river that goes through the city. This event is called Waterfire.

On the Pepperberry thing. Pepperberry is another word for peppercorn.

*mind blown*

Though I do have to say, Strawberry Reef is a really odd pony... a berry and some coral? I mean... okay...

Strawberry reef always gets me!

I love pepper berry I think she's super unique! I have to admit after hearing people say it was good I tried it. Can't say I loved it though...;)
