Honey Maid sends a message to critics of ad featuring gay couple
LA Times ^ | 4/4/14 | Amy Hubbard

Posted on 04/04/2014 10:29:42 AM PDT by Oliviaforever

Honey Maid stirred controversy with a recent commercial that challenged traditional notions of what constituted a family. "This Is Wholesome" features a variety of families, including interracial couples and their mixed-race children, as well as a same-sex couple and their children. (See the commercial below.) As would be expected, Honey Maid generated a response. The company could have let it lie. Instead Honey Maid decided to make a new statement.

Honey Maid and Mozilla added to “not supporting” list. Next? I have a feeling this list will be long.

No matter how many times they try to state that sodomy is “wholesome” it will always be disgusting. The act of sodomy is repulsive and totally against nature. Direct Nabuttsco to the CDC website for the “facts” on what they believe to be “wholesome.” It is a pro-disease lifestyle that is deadly to those who participate in it. NOT WHOLESOME!

Way to go, guys - Everybody knows that nothing says "wholesome" better than anal sex and AIDS. </sarcasm>

The commercial says: “No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome, never will.”

What makes us wholesome will never change - hmmmm

Who knew that gays “raising” kids has been wholesome since the beginning of time?

Pandering to 2 percent of the population and insulting the rest. No more smores.

I had three young grandkids who ate Honey Made snacks.
After seeing the ad last week, I now have three grandchildren who can not eat Honey Made snacks because me and my two sons threw their products out of our houses.

It’s not the 2%, it’s the rest of the percentage o the population and market that has bought into the politically cowrecked premise that homosexuality is benign...that to view it as anything else is hatred.

The brainwashing is proving to be quite successful because there are a majority of folks who are not homosexual who side with the homosexuals...this is why Honey Maid was emboldened to double down.

I am beginning to that Smores with their Hershey bar and marshmallow between two crackers are not as innocent as we may have thought and their may even be some symbolism that is disgusting.

Another case of corporate America standing for perversion and deviancy.

More and more, America is transitioning into a genuinely evil entity. The exact opposite of everything it once was.

It is difficult to believe but what you say is true. Allowing homosexual couples to adopt is simply child abuse. And for advertisements to present that as a “wholesome” family is just a sign of how far we have already fallen.

LOL. Only in your mind, Olivia.

10 seconds of research led me to discover that the recipe for smore goes back to the 1920s.

“The things which make us wholesome, don’t change”

Well, since they’ve changed almost everything, the logical conclusion is that we’re no longer wholesome. That much they got right without meaning to.

In turn, does Phillip Morris own some of those companies as well? Does that mean people tossing out certain brands of cigarettes, snuff and chewing tobacco? This was previously discussed as well.

You’re relying on a very old news item.

In 2003, Philip Morris Companies Inc. changed its name to Altria Group, Inc.

In 2007, Altria spun off its Kraft subsidiary.

In 2012, Kraft Foods essentially became two separate, publicly traded companies - Mondelez International and Kraft Foods Group.

Mondelez owns the Nabisco name and produces Honey Maid Graham Crackers.

Kraft Foods Group has absolutely nothing to do with Honey Maid Graham Crackers. They are a completely different, independent company. They produce products like Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

Actually, we never had smores when I was a kid, we just roasted hot dogs and/or marshmallows over an open fire.

I always figured it was a marketing gimmick.

If they think anal sex is wholesome, I really don’t think I want to know what goes into their crack er.

No more peanut butter & graham crackers using Honey Maids. If they think poop sex is “wholesome”, ain’t no telling what they put in them. Wonder if anyone at Honey Maid can work a search engine and check out the health issues caused by anal sex? Probably not - might be bad for that person’s career aspirations.
