Honey Maid responds

After Honey Maid’s delightful commercial about the wholesomeness of non-traditional families, they got some feedback.

Here is their response.

You will buy Honey Maid graham crackers after you see this. I don’t care if you hate graham crackers, you will find yourself at the grocery store with Honey Maid in your basket.

I hate graham crackers and I’m not a big fan of girl scout cookies but I’ve got a cupboard filled with both right now! And now that this new ad has come out I’m going to pick up another couple of boxes of graham crackers. Guess I need to start making some cheesecakes!

I recall that by the time I was in kindergarten, I had already come to hate graham crackers.

But I do really, really like graham cracker pie crust. So I’ll get a couple boxes and plan to make a pie (key lime?) or a cheesecake. Ummm, good!

Yeah, I’ll look for their graham crackers and donate them to the food bank.

Is that the sound of heads exploding?

My husband is a graham cracker fanatic who has had them for lunch with peanut butter for YEARS! I guarantee you he’ll be eating them the rest of his life. I just bought a new family size box of them and he’s munching away. He’s 90 and was in hospice care last year for six months and he slowly stabilized and living it out one day at a time. He gets anything he wants and those crackers are always on the menu. This clip just gladdens me to the bone.

I LOVE graham crackers! With PB they are great.
You put a smear of cream cheese and strawberry jam on them and you have an instant cheesecake snack.
And yeah, there’s always s’mores.

But this commercial AFTER the commercial is genius!
That’s how you know love and goodness can outshine the darkness of bigotry.
Way to GO, Honey Maid!

If you have any of those caramel delights or thin mints I’d be happy to make a sacrifice and take them off your hands :P
