Customer Experience is Deceptively Simple and Deviously Complex, but, Unavoidable Part of the Deal

 Cornflakes are not very preferred breakfast in my house so very often we don't even have it in stock. So this morning when I told my daughter I am going out to get a pack, she insisted I get the plain flavour. She reminded me specifically not to get the honey flavour. I assumed this is because she did not like the honey flavour which I seem to have bought the previous time.  What happened next is quite intriguing. Not only did she pour cornflakes and milk in the bowl, she also poured a large spoon of honey on top. I asked her the reason - "that's the  right way  to eat cornflakes", she insisted.  The brand would read this act of pouring honey in cornflakes as potential demand for honey flavoured cornflakes - the agency would helpfully bring in the supporting data probably - but only one problem -  this customer cluster does not want it, they want to  experience  adding the honey to it! Many brands still sell by deconstructing their physical product - CPU, RAM, Screen
