    I see a lot of acquisitions nowadays going down with the selling company dictating future terms -- such as "will operate in a green manner", or "will use only natural ingredients" - these become terms of the sale to maintain the owner's original vision of the product -- corporate structures have a way of destroying a brand that was built privately.

    Wish this was still live but glad to be able to revive it.

    My favorite B & G flavor: Pistachio.

    I was thinking to myself "what did it look like when MJ was trying to get some momentum on this thing?"

    Started clickin' around and found this.

    For whatever reason it made me smile and I thought...I'm gonna revive this thing.

    Bump, lol.

    Inspiring (at least it is to me).
