    I really was expecting Key Lime Pie. Wonder how much the licensing fees were?

    And there is going to be a limited edition bar, with a chance at winning a Nexus tablet and other prizes.

    Give me a break. :) This should be good for some Google play credit.

    "Back in the day" code words were generated by adults.

    One particular set of machines I worked on had prototype codenames of "Star", "Comet", "Nebula" and "Atlas". (DEC's codenames for the VAX-series computers in the late 1970s through mid 1980s)

    Microsoft had names like "Chicago" and "Longhorn".

    Google sounds like they're trolling kids in candy stores. And I *like* Google!

    I personally think they are better names than Saucy Salamander or Raring Ringtail.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with them having a bit of fun with it. The version number can be used to identify it.

    Traditionally, Android code names have followed the names of deserts, so having a candy bar name makes sense.

    If they were names of deserts, they should have gone Gobi, Sahara, Mojave, ...

    Desert or desserts? Only worlds of difference. (face palm)
