So the Little Debbie® snack food is actually owned by THESE PEOPLE

I don't know if I can ever eat one of those delicious peanut butter bars ever again in good conscience.

And it's no wonder everything they make is so damn good.

It's all made from the processed daydreams and free thoughts of little children.

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...

The company that makes/distributes Little Debbies is owned by Seventh Day Adventists.

In other news, Chick-Fil-A is owned by Christians (I don't know which denomination); every convenience store in America is owned by Muslims; the gays own Disney, and I don't own shit.

Wonder geek powers activated!!!

Ok, I think I decoded this correctly (lemme know Internet Jesus).

Seventh Day Adventists is the link in question from Wikipedia.

Here's an article discussing the connection of Little Debbie and the cult known as Seventh Day Adventist.

Little Debbie is distributed by a company that is owned by a Seventh Day Adventist family.

I had never run across Little Debbie until I moved from California to New Hampshire in 2001. I don’t think they have Little Debbie on the West Coast. Having always been a big fan of all things “Hostess” I decided to give Little Debbie a try. I can say without reservation that every Little Debbie snack I tried tasted like a pile of shit and there will never be a chance that I try another one again. :ugh:

Ah yes, the McKee Baking company! I lived right next to the Little Debbie plant in Collegedale,Tn. awhile back. The present owners/operators of both plants were my students when I was teaching. They are filthy rich from the manufacturing/sales of those sinful cakes. So much for their "health message".

I still recall the sickeningly sweet aroma I woke up to every morning! By the way, little Debbie herself is a lesbian. Not that there's anything wrong with that! Too bad the sda church doesn't approve.

You serious about her being lesbian? If so that makes this so savory. Pun intended. LOL

They're not really that yummy. Try some devil's food cake. It's hellacious.

I wonder if they use animal products in those? All the Seventh Day Adventists I know are vegetarians.

If they don't, it explains why most of that stuff tastes like crap. :D

I only know one Seventh Day Adventists, but he's not a vegetarian, even though he's pretty serious about the whole thing. Not that it's really that important, I just thought I would share.

Also, sorry about the double post...I don't know how to quote two things in one post.

I rarely eat them as it is. Guess cutting them off completely from my diet wont be that hard. I've only been to Chick-fil-a once, many years ago, so deciding not to eat there was easy.

I'm not one to boycott something I enjoy simply because it is made/distributed by someone I don't agree with. It makes no financial impact on the company and it's a tactic used by the "other side" that makes me respect them even less.

Otherwise, atheists would have to boycott movies employing religious actors, directors and producers. We'd have to do our homework and avoid the "wrong" television shows. We could only buy books published by atheist publishing houses.

It gets a little silly after a short while.
