The food team at co-op have been working behind the scenes on launching on their gingerbread person. Their very own gender neutral gingerbread man and they want the public to help them find a name for it!
The Co-op website states: “Our Food team is adding the final touches to a new Co-op gingerbread person, but they’ve yet to come up with a name.
“They’d like members to join in and suggest a fitting name for our new little biscuity friend.
“The plan is to give our new gingerbread fellow some seasonal costume refreshes – a distinctively Christmassy look for December and something rather spooky around Halloween for example. So they’ll need a name that works for any time of year.
“We also need to ensure that the name is gender neutral too. Join in to suggest a name. Our Food team will create a shortlist of the ones they think will best fit the bill and we’ll be back to ask you to vote for your favourite next month.”
You’ve only got until May 1st to suggest a name and submit it to them. Gender neutral names that we can think of would be, Ashley, Tony, Sam & Jordan. What do you think?
Social media naturally reacted in brilliant fashion, here are the best!
I can’t believe they’re calling gingerbread men ‘gingerbread person’ because of that gender neutral shit looool

I don’t want to live in this world anymore. I can’t handle this stupid shit. It’s a bloody gingerbread man for no reason at all, it’s what it always has been. https://t.co/O03ShhL9YK
