The true story of Hippie Chow

I agree with you on product integrity and control, great point! What I don't agree with is that Dean and Deluca represents the best of the best. What they do represent, and what I was trying to get at above, is upper class America. (and over priced kitchen ware) We are talking about a company that caters to the upper crust and makes no bones about it. The ironic thing with this particular product is the name is a slap in the face to the natural food movement. The movement that represents a need for healthy food for all people not just the rich. I applaud Ms. MBA for her marketing smarts, but she inadvertently hurt her credit with the "granola munchers."...just opinions. I think there are bits of truth in everyone's opinions.

The true story of Hippie Chow

The headline to this story should really be " Local girl sells out to Corporate Big dogs...Can't Produce enough to Sell to Locals, Real Hippies, or the Lower Class."
As much as I would be tempted to cash in on rich white Americas new found obsession with all things "hippie" too, I find this to be symptomatic of many problems with the food system in this country.

Research finds the poor are more obese

;) Thank you for mentioning subsidies! "Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) has cost the American economy billions of dollars since 1980 and has indirectly cost Americans tens of billions of dollars in higher prices and higher taxes over that same period. At least 43 percent of ADM's annual profits are from products heavily subsidized or protected by the American government. Moreover, every $1 of profits earned by ADM's corn sweetener operation costs consumers $10, and every $1 of profits earned by its ethanol operation costs taxpayers $30."

Research finds the poor are more obese

It is obvious when someone refers to low income families as “lazy” that that person is way out of touch with realty!!! America has some serious class issues…the food system is one very big one (literally)! It is hard to live a healthy lifestyle on a budget; I make sacrifices every day to provide organics and fresh foods for my family. Obesity is a symptom…what is the cause? Here is a hint…cheap food being produce by multi-billion dollar corporations...CEOs are getting rich and fat while the poor are getting trapped and fat. Calling a suffering demographic of people lazy is just an un-aware thing to say…WAKE UP PEOPLE!
