    1. So I might be missing some details here but from what I understand, the main reason why the Walmart Juneteenth ice cream caught heat was because they pretty overtly stole the recipe from a black-owned ice cream company.

      1. And so, it was true to events in the 17th century . . . . πŸ˜‰ (I don’t know the symbol for a emoji.)

  1. And so, the Pride Oreo cookies is simply packaging? Would it really have been all that hard for Nabisco at least to color the inside white cream in the Pride colors? (It’s called food coloring . . . .) Talk about a marketing bomb-out.

    1. Seriously – they did a limited edition run with rainbow cream last year but you’d think they would sell more in stores if the Oreos weren’t just the same old white filling.

      1. I was thinking the same thing, that they must have had some sort of rainbow coloured cream or rainbow mix-in flavours in the past that they could have just cycled in again.

        1. I would think that this should be an annual (marketing) event for Oreos. Just like McDonald’s bringing out Shamrock Shakes each year. πŸ™‚ And if Nabisco was really thinking, it would be tossing out rainbow-colored Oreo snack packs at the many numerous Pride parades, etc. Why not have fun and make it a fun occasion?

      2. I wasn’t aware that Nabisco had used rainbow colors before–thanks for mentioning that. Maybe the rainbow machine is out-of-order right now, lol. :p

        1. Haha I was starting to list off all the colors I know they normally do – red at Christmas, orange at Halloween, different spring colors – to agree that they’re fully capable of doing a rainbow, but then I Googled and saw the promotion they did last year, so they proved it themselves!

    1. It’s very revealing that you consider two Pride-themed food items, out of a list of fourteen total food items, to be “ridiculous and getting out of hand”. What a sad, pathetic worldview you possess.

    2. What is? All of the sugar content? lol Because I certainly don’t see one other, single thing wrong with anything shown here.

      1. Back atcha.’ Sadly, my experience is that people who wave the “snowflake” challenge are themselves of that ilk.

  2. That price for a Meringue Kit… yikes! I know egg prices are out of control but you could still pull together the equivalent for a couple bucks easily

    1. I’m guessing it’s because of the inclusion of piping bags, presumably tips, food colouring, and just the added cost of all that extra packaging.

      1. Plus, some healthy profit. πŸ˜‰ I’m continually surprised by some of the profit margins that get disclosed on “Shark Tank.”
