    Wow, I thought the “freaky” families would be intercut with some “normal” ones – but this is a total “freak” fest. Love it! Poor Bill Donohue is going to have to go full Bloody Mary over this blasphemy.

    Dear Honey Maid, You have no idea how an ad like this affects people like me. I seldom see either of my two minority groups represented in ads (Asian or Gay). It makes me want to support your products when ever I go the the store.Thank you for being inclusive

    Makes sense. “The graham cracker was originally conceived of as a health food as part of the Graham Diet, a regimen to suppress what he considered unhealthy carnal urges, the source of many maladies according to Graham” (Wikipedia). Settling down can have the effect of reducing the “self-abuse” Sylvester Graham and John Harvey Kellogg were so concerned about.

    Another Blue State TV commercial? How many TV commercials featuring Black or Interracial families during the ’60s and ’70s south of the Mason-Dixon line?

    This magnificent. And it isn’t some trendy new company, but a 90 year-old brand selling a very traditional product. And that ending! My God, if this doesn’t give Bryan Fischer an aneurysm, I don’t know what will.

    BTW, all of those families are real. They are not actors. Here’s Honey Maid’s Youtube video with more background on the gay family. Please go there and thank them in the comments and give it a thumbs up:

    Try ’em with butter and apple butter. OK, I haven’t had that since I was eleven. I am however now that I think about it buying some apple butter the next time I’m at the supermarket. There was a brand in western supermarkets anyway that was entirely apples and maybe spices.

    Well gee whiz WINDOW I think I will immediately write an irate letter complaining that there is no disabled interracial gay Downs Syndrome physically handicapped little people couple in the damn thing.

    My favorite way to have graham crackers is smeared with my mother’s brown sugar icing. I think it’s time to cook some up to thank Nabisco Honey Maid for the inclusive commercial and to relive a happy childhood memory.

    AWESOME! We need to thank Ikea for the brave ad they ran years ago. Gays spend a lot of money and big companies know it. Our “family” is no different than anyone else’s “family”. It’s great to be acknowledged.

    They should have shown a man and a lady goat and a bunch of little baby centaurs running around if they really wanted to be cutting edge

    This is so sweet. My partner & I have talked about adopting in the past,and lately we’re pretty close to starting the process. We’ve been going over all of the challenges facing a kid with same sex parents, and we’ve decided that the benefits outweigh the negatives. Can’t wait to start this new chapter in our lives.

    This isn’t ok… It’s unfortunate that morality has become so gray that we now celebrate man on man, unnatural relationships… think it through…those two men could not create a child naturally… why is it ok for them to attempt to raise a child with this distorted sense of normal. It’s not normal!!! It’s morally bankrupt and completely inappropriate. Shame on all of you who call this “beautiful”, “magnificent”, “epic”… pick your adjective. This is immoral, inappropriate, unnatural, and completely wrong. What’s next? Will all of you come together and decide that incest is ok? How about marrying first cousins or something more edgy like beastiality. Real honorable.

    I have seen your commercial and I have found it to be very distributing to say the lease. How can this be a good thing, this is not condonable or conducive to nature a man and another man cannot or will they every have a baby naturally so your commercial is false only a man and a woman can have a baby naturally bio 101 and that is the way how nature have make it and it have not change or will it every be likely to change. Color doesn’t matter. Homosexually is wrong, simple and true you who are condoning this, do obviously lack commonsense. You all are educated fools and because you have condoned this I promise you it will turn around to bite. Let me make myself clear, because money is your G-D you will lose it. You play with fire prepare to get burn, more people than you think is against this, you do not want to understand, we do not want to be a part of this mockery. You are supposed to be selling food not influencing us to lack immoral etiquette. I will NEVER buy your products again every, and I will be advising my friends and families to not buy any of your products, and I know that less people will be buying your products this I promise you, if you continue running this commercial.

    I understand the point. However I was actually happy that gays were only seen in shows and movies and not in commercials. I guess that is out the window. I was able to control what my kids will see but now I will have to take away television till I can explain whats going on in this world.
