Okay, I have been shopping at Fred Flare forever but this really turns me off from them. Anyone else?

nope. they're just advertising to appeal to customer fads, and trying to get shot of stuff thats not turning over quick enough. bacon is a big thing randomly at the moment. all companies do this.

the mixer being cowprint is doesn't hurt any cows (you can blend non dairy things in it too). lots of people like that pattern. i'd feel the same way if it had cat pawprints all over it.

a burgerphone doesn't contain real meat and could be a veggieburger for all we know. its just a phone.

i have no issue with pignosed flashlights. pigs are cute. flashlights are functional- same with mugs.

if people wanna eat bacon flavoured pancakes and are stupid enough to pay $14- thats their issue.

.... they have pirate bandaids too. thats not exactly supporting terrorism in my mind, though it could be construed that way. i'd rather don a pickle bandaid anyway.

My problem is with the association of meat to the cute moo and oink. It is just weird to me. It sort of reminds me of pork products with laughing pigs on them.

I was a little turned off too but I just shrugged it off and looked a their other stuff.

I dig the moo mixer, it is cute and I would make a soy or tofu smoothie with it, but if it had Cat prints...oh god, I couldnt stop myself. Everything else, like the floss is slightly uncomfortable, the floos is just gross.
