My ear can't get used to hearing the product NORR being advertised on tv. 'Til a few months ago, I only knew it as KNORR.

K-norr, they've got the k-now how? I find the pronunciation less irksome than I do Marco Pierre White's abandonment of all his earlier bile and vitriol for pre-made stock, I expect he's short of cash. Again.

Does happen to the best of us. I wish somebody asked me to endorse some product (no matter how crap) for good money.
Have no reputation to lose anyway.

The K in Unilever's Knorr brand (originally a German last name, in Dutch "knor" is the sound of a pig) is pronounced like the C in "candle". It's not a silent K, like in the already mentioned "to know". So it roughly sounds like Candle-andle+ nor.

I thought I made the pronunciation of the letter 'K' in Dutch quite obvious.

It seems appropriate to mention that Bush Sr is not only a Shrub but an 'erbert.
