That's the beauty of it. With all these social reactionaries boycotting everything, soon they'll be forced to accept the future if they want to watch a hollywood-produced movie or buy food products (aside from Chik Fil-A)


Don't forget In and Out Burger... who happens to make the best burgers in the country.  (Actually I believe it was ranked number 1 overall fast food.)

Don't know what it is, but Super Christian people make some BAD ASS fast food.  Maybe they use better ingriedients.

That said... it's not like liberals don't boycott the crap out of stuff too... I mean, you mentioned it yourself just not to long ago in regards to Glen Back.

 

As for the OP.  If they ACTUALLY made Rainbow Oreos i'd probably be actually more likely to buy some.  That sounds badass.

Then again looking at the graphic... prolly not... too much cream, i was thinkin it was gonna be like a rainbow swirl Oreo.


Still, no issues here.

Five Guys all the way. Or are we strictly comparing fast food (which Five Guys doesn't quite qualify for).

Five Guys counts as fast food.  Really, I'd say In-Out beats them hands down though.  Five Guys only saving grace is they have all that customization.

Have you eaten at an In-Out?  Thought it was a west coast only thing.

Well and wait time... In-Out Burgers are ridiculious in that there are ALWAYS 25 people infront of you seemingly no matter when you go.

 

Yeah, i have never heard of them, but even going 20 minutes west of here over the border into Ohio and you find a lot of suddenly-strange chains.

Ha, have to go a lot farther then Ohio, I know cause as you may remember i used to live there.

The closest in and out burger to Pensylvania is Arizona.

All that burger-talk reminds me of Pulp Fiction.

“Disgusted with oreos,” wrote another. “Being gay is an abmonitation in GOd’s eyes i wont be buying them anymore.”

 

God loves Everybody.

Sick of people shoving gay pride crap down people's throats. It's so stupid. Are people so low that they have to add a political message to cookies now? As a christian, I will never recognize their partnership despite what the government claims.

Christian religion doesn't mean you have to hate gay people. This image is from the Christopher Street Day in Berlin, it shows the truck of the christian gays:

The banner on the left says something like: man-on-man, lesbian, confident, christian

The same can be said about religion and 'god'. As long as places like the Westboro Baptist Church exist, I think the world needs to come together and show we accept one another.  With that said, Kudos Oreos.

The question here is: Will what they did make you boycott Oreos?  Also, if you say yes, will then go forth and be involved with an active boycott of Oreos, to make your point heard?

Well and I mean, outside being only in Arizona, to give you an example of just how crazy In-and Out burger is.

 

There official Menu looks like this.

Cheeseburger

French Fries.

Soda

Milkshake.

 

That's it... and there is ALWAYS a dozen or more people in line before you and about 10 people sitting down and standing by the drink area for their food.

It's not even like Five guys where they have a ton of different topings... it's just the regular burger toppings and that's about it.

 

If your ever out west it's worth going to just to see the lines.

Starbucks did a similar thing some time ago and came out in support of gay marriage, it worked out very well for them. I seem to remember that their brand popularity actually increased dramatically as a result of it - 30,000 people signed a petition in support of the boycott, but 650,000 people signed a counter petition in support of Starbucks.

This will probably be good for Oreos. They will temporarily lose a few bigoted customers but replace them tenfold with people who support them like Starbucks did, while offering their support to a very important social issue.

Your probably right... but it's worth noting that speciality coffee stores have a more liberal "Core demographic" then Oreos do.

Coffee shopts in general skewing left, and Starbucks always being known for being on the forefront supporting liberal causes, paying there workers well etc.

Oreo sales have declined which would suggest a more conservative base... and there are a bunch of other factors that would seem to lean that way as well... don't feel like fully researching it right now.

I think it may give them a bump, but not of the same level as Starbucks.   Only because I think most ore consumers will say "I don't agree, but who cares." and maybe they pick up some new buyers from the left to give them a try... if it becomes big enough they might be bought for specficic liberal events in the next month or so.

 

Though it might all end up beign completely ignored by the left and lead to a very slight negative dip if it turns out that shooting in Texas was motivated by homophobia. 



I don't really like Oreos in the first place, and political stunts like this (which really do nothing at all, but try and grab attention) certainly do not motivate me to buy their product. And goodness, that's a ton of cream!



Sonic > In/Out Burger > Five Guys

Five Guys have defiantly lost their novelty, maybe because i'm from northern va and the company originated here.
