Nabisco’s Chips Ahoy cookies celebrates Mother’s Day with drag queen. Cookies recalled for ‘unexpected solidified ingredient’

On Mother’s Day last Sunday, May 12, 2019, Nabisco’s Chips Ahoy! tweeted a video of a drag queen, Vanessa Vanjie, with this message:

 to your moms, your drag moms and everyone who celebrates you being YOU. 

Here’s the video:

Below are some tweets in response:

Reaper: “This is a man”

Mark Dice: “Maybe just sell chocolate chip cookies, and leave drag queens out of it.”

Saladino for Congress: “Thank you for helping me narrow down my cookie preferences. No more Chips Ahoy for me”

Matthew Leitner: “There will never be a chips ahoy product in my home. Ever.”

Mark: “Fun fact, biological males with make up on doesn’t give them the ability to give birth.”

The Grumpy White Guy: “I know what’s hitting the trash can when I get home.”

Ross: “Thanks I’ll be vomiting every time I see a chips ahoy now, which is never”

Chris: “Well…no more Chips Ahoy for my house.”

Brent: “Chips ahoy will never see my money. In fact @nabisco should sell the brand because I’m about replace all of their products!”

Vanjie is not only a man in drag, he is a sodomite.

Shoutout to all the dick suckers!!

Meanwhile, in related news, USA Today reports on April 17, 2019:

Bags of chewy Chips Ahoy! chocolate chip cookies are being recalled in the United States after an “unexpected solidified ingredient” has been found in some of them.

Mondelēz Global LLC, the parent company of Nabisco, released a recall notice for consumers on April 13 for the limited and voluntary recall of the cookies. Mondelēz Global has not specified what the solidified ingredient in the cookies is, but said there have been reports of potential adverse health effects.

The 13-ounce pack of cookies containing the UPC 044000032234 and use by dates on Sept. 7, Sept. 8, Sept. 14 and Sept. 15, should not be eaten. The dates are located on the top left of the packaging near the lift tab.

Anyone who may have purchased these chocolate chip cookies should not eat them and reach out to Mondelēz Global, which is headquartered in East Hanover Township, New Jersey.

I dread to think what the “unexpected solidified ingredient” is….

PETA demands animal cookies be “uncaged”

Why no one takes PETA seriously. IT’S A COOKIE.

Maybe these “animal advocates” should focus more on reducing the number of animals they euthanize.

From Yahoo: After more than a century behind bars, the beasts on boxes of animal crackers are roaming free.

Mondelez International, the parent company of Nabisco, has redesigned the packaging of its Barnum’s Animals crackers in response to pressure from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

PETA, which has been protesting the use of animals in circuses for more than 30 years, wrote a letter to Mondelez in the spring of 2016 calling for a redesign.

“Given the egregious cruelty inherent in circuses that use animals and the public’s swelling opposition to the exploitation of animals used for entertainment, we urge Nabisco to update its packaging in order to show animals who are free to roam in their natural habitats,” PETA said in its letter.

Mondelez agreed and started working on a redesign. In the meantime, the crackers’ namesake circus — Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey — folded for good. The 146-year-old circus, which had removed elephants from its shows in 2016 because of pressure from PETA and others, closed down in May 2017 due to slow ticket sales.

The redesign of the boxes, now on U.S. store shelves, retains the familiar red and yellow coloring and prominent “Barnum’s Animals” lettering. But instead of showing the animals in cages — implying that they’re traveling in boxcars for the circus — the new boxes feature a zebra, elephant, lion, giraffe and gorilla wandering side-by-side in a grassland. The outline of acacia trees can be seen in the distance.

“When PETA reached out about Barnum’s, we saw this as another great opportunity to continue to keep this brand modern and contemporary,” said Jason Levine, Mondelez’s chief marketing officer for North America, in a statement.

Mondelez is based in Illinois, which passed a statewide ban on circuses with elephants that went into effect in January. More than 80 U.S. cities have fully or partially banned circuses with wild animals, according to Animal Defenders International.

PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman says she’s celebrating the box redesign for the cultural change it represents.

“The new box for Barnum’s Animals crackers perfectly reflects that our society no longer tolerates the caging and chaining of wild animals for circus shows,” she said.

Nabisco has been making Barnum’s Animals crackers since 1902. It has redesigned its boxes before, but only for limited-time special editions. In 1995, it offered an endangered species collection that raised money for the World Wildlife Fund. In 1997, it offered a zoo collection that raised money for the American Zoo and Aquarium Association. And in 2010, it worked with designer Lilly Pulitzer on a pastel-colored box that raised money for tiger conservation.

The company won’t say how many boxes it sells each year. Canadian boxes already had a different design and aren’t affected.

Honey Maid crackers go homo

First, it was JCPenney with its lesbian Mother’s Day and sodomite Father’s Day ads.

Then Oreo cookies went all “gay” with its rainbow cookie.

Now, Honey Maid, one of America’s oldest and most familiar snack food brand, has gone homosexual as well.

Honey MaidHoney Maid is a brand of Nabisco, the giant U.S. manufacturer of cookies and snacks. Nabisco’s 1,800,000-square-foot plant in Chicago, is the largest bakery in the world, employing more than 1,500 workers and turning out some 320 million pounds of snack foods annually.

Headquartered in East Hanover, NJ, Nabisco is a subsidiary of Mondelēz International, a multinational conglomerate of processed food, candy, and beverages based in Deerfield, Illinois. The CEO of Mondelez International is a 60-year-old woman named Irene Rosenfeld.

Bruce Horovitz reports for USA Today, March 10, 2014, that the 90-year-old Honey Maid graham cracker brand has jumped on “the diversity bandwagon with a far-reaching campaign.”

In one 30-second Honey Maid TV ad, viewers will see an interracial couple and their three kids holding hands, a father covered in body tattoos, and a “same-sex couple” bottle-feeding their son. “No matter how things change,” says an off-camera narrator in the ad, created by the agency Droga5, “what makes wholesome never will. Honey Maid everyday wholesome snacks. For every wholesome family.

Here’s a longer version of the very “wholesome” ad of two homosexual “dads” and their son:

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7UJxh5MQ_o]

Horovitz writes that major mainstream brands are plowing ahead and all but ignoring the expected social media blow-back, with one eye on demographics and another on survival.

Andrew Erlich, a cross-cultural psychologist, consultant and author, explains,”The big brands are coming to the conclusion that diversity in America is inevitable. This horse has left the barn.”

Demographer Cheryl Russell says some 37% of Americans are minorities and will likely reach the 50% mark by 2044, and marketers are simply responding to the math: “I call it the one-third rule. When you exceed one-third of the population, you have political and economic power that far exceeds that level because you can make coalitions with a majority.”

Advertisers are simply reading the demographic numbers — and reacting. Whatever a traditional family used to be, it is no longer. One in 12 married couples in the U.S. are interracial. American women now make up 40% of primary family breadwinners. And only 62% of children live with their two biological parents.

“As a brand, you don’t really care who buys your product,” says Jo Muse, chairman of Muse Communications, one of the nation’s first multicultural agencies. “You just want them happy — and you want them to know that you see them.”

Gary Osifchin, senior marketing director of biscuits for U.S. Mondelez, the conglomerate that owns Honey Maid, says “This is a recognition that the family dynamic in America is evolving and has evolved. We’ve evolved, too.” It’s all about appealing to a new generation that looks and acts different. All of this demographic change, the new Honey Maid ad implies, is just as wholesome as the brand itself. No matter what their skin color or sexual orientation, “these families that we portray all have wonderful parent and child connections,” says Osifchin. “We want to be a brand that is current. No matter how things out there in the world have changed, the enduring value of wholesome connections between parent and child have endured.”

Osifchin is peddling mumbo-jumbo propaganda.

While America increasingly is multi-racial, which accounts for the increasing frequency of nonwhites and interracial couples in print ads and TV commercials, the plain truth is that homosexuals account for less than 2% of the U.S. population.

That figure is not a concoction of some “right-wing” hate group, but comes from a 2011 study by a gay and lesbian think tank at UCLA, the Williams Institute. The study found that just 1.7% of Americans between 18 and 44 identify as gay or lesbian, while another 1.8% — predominantly women — identify as bisexual. Far from underestimating the ranks of gay people because of homophobia, these figures actually included a substantial number of people who remained deeply closeted.

So “demographics” does not and cannot account for Honey Maid’s “wholesome” homosexual ad. It’s about an ideological agenda.

No. 26 in the 45 Communist Goals For America is “Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as normal, natural, healthy.”

________________

Note: The 45 Communist Goals should more accurately be called the 45 Totalitarian Goals For America. It’s all about totalitarian government control, of either the communist Left or the fascist Right. Same difference.

I’ve eaten Honey Maid graham crackers, but I will no longer.

Processed baked snacks like Honey Maid are bad for our health any way.

The parable of the Stella D'oro union workers


Stella D’oro is a brand of cookies, breadsticks, biscotti, and S-shaped breakfast treats. I used to love them, before I woke up to the awful truth of transfat. 🙁
Founded in 1932 by Italian immigrant Joseph Kresivich, the company was sold to Nabisco in 1992; became part of Kraft Foods in 2000; sold again to Brynwood Partners in 2006; and eventually to Lance Inc. in 2009.
Since its beginning, Stella D’oro’s bakery or manufacturing facility had been located on West 237th Street at the north end of Kingsbridge in the Bronx, New York City. The workers belonged to the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers’ International Union, Local 50.
On August 14, 2008, two weeks after their contract expired, 138 Stella D’oro workers went on strike citing proposed pay and benefit cuts, and later picketed the company’s attempt to bring in replacement workers.

3 guesses as to what happened to these striking Stella D’oro union workers!


This is what happened, as recounted by Alicia Colon for the Irish Examiner, May 8, 2012:

One would think that in this horrible economy, those employed with a halfway decent job would hold on to it and yet union members are foolishly electing to strike thinking that union leadership have their best interest at heart.

Last week, Caterpillar workers went out on strike for better wages and health care after negotiations fell apart. I would suggest that they do their homework and look up the case of the Stella D’Oro factory workers in the Bronx and wake up to reality.

I watched an HBO documentary, “No Contract, No Cookies,” which chronicled the 11-month old strike of workers protesting their unfair wages. The company owners maintained that the hourly wages of $18 to $22 an hour and nine weeks of paid leave made the factory unprofitable and demanded significant reductions in wages and benefits.

That’s when the union bosses stepped in and organized a hard fought strike with picket lines throughout the fall, winter and spring as the recession deepened.

The union sued the company and won their case in court, winning the right to return to work. Not one worker broke ranks and the documentary showed the glee on their faces as they learned the result of their suit. Happy ending? Not quite.

Soon after they returned, the owners closed the factory.

In an interview with the Huffington Post’s Jonah Green, director Jon Alpert said, “The factory was quintessentially American with the immigrant composition of the workforce and the fact that this type of job opportunity was a beacon for them. And it was not only a beacon but a safe harbor that they landed in when they got to America.”

According to the narrative of the film, many of the workers were long term, some having worked there over 30 years and the program was generally sympathetic to their plight.

Many were immigrants from third world countries but I had a hard time feeling their pain and I think they all deserved a good shaking for being so stupid for genuflecting to the union leadership instead of facing reality. It was quite clear from the movie that they had no idea what capitalism means.

At some of their rallies they were spouting clearly Marxist sentiments claiming that the company was theirs because they had worked there for years. The routine premise of the picketers was,” Workers Unite!” and to me that conjured up images of the Russian revolution of the proletariats.

Americans need to be reschooled or in the case of young public school students schooled for the first time on what a business is. It is not a charity but is generally established primarily to make a profit. If it is successful it will be able to hire and pay good wages to hard workers. If it isn’t it will either have to cut expenses or shut down. Workers have to also consider the reality of their companies’ viability in the current market. […]

The American dream is alive and well for those who understand how it works and are willing to work hard for it.

It is a real folly to cede control over one’s life to union bosses who spout leftwing mantras and promote class envy. It is highly doubtful that the Bronx union bosses lost their jobs along with those unfortunate Stella D’Oro workers. But not all unions are evil in fact, the Hotel, Motel Trades Council in New York provides excellent healthcare for their members and pensioners in various union health clinics around the city.

Many others, however, are an anachronism that exploit their membership and most are in league with one political party funding election campaigns with union dues but without worker input.

The S.E.I.U. (Service Employees International Union) is using thuggery to enforce its agenda and if we ever get a Justice Department that will actually enforce our laws, its days and its members will be numbered.

[…] In this stagnant economy union workers are no longer indispensable. Unemployed workers are legion and will swoop in to take over the jobs from those unwise enough to strike. ‘Unfortunately, unions still have strong influence over workers who haven’t learned the lessons of past strikers. […]

Union workers need to wake up and fast and take a good look at those disguised socialists endangering their livelihoods and killing the American Dream.

In September 2009, Brynwood announced the sale of Stella D’Oro to Lance, a large manufacturer of snack foods, which promptly relocated Stella D’Oro’s production to a non-union facility in Ashland, Ohio.
And that, boys and girls, is how the cookie crumbled!
