At least it’s not soup.

It’s from “Trump Marks Fine Foods LLC” in case you’re wondering. And here are a whole bunch of other Trump marks in case you’re hungry.

Which of course, you will be if you rely on Meals on Wheels or after-school programs for your children.

“We can’t spend money on programs just because they sound good. And Meals on Wheels sounds great — again, that’s a state decision to fund that particular portion to. But to take the federal money and give it to the states and say, look, we want to give you money for programs that don’t work — I can’t defend that anymore.”

…and:

“They’re supposed to help kids who don’t get fed at home get fed so they do better in school. Guess what? There’s no demonstrable evidence they’re actually doing that. There’s no demonstrable evidence of actually helping results, helping kids do better in school.”

Campbell’s Soup K-Cup For Keurig Coffee Maker

Campbell Soup Co. to make K-cup soup packs that can be made with Green Mountain's Keurig single-serve coffee machines.

Let’s just start things off with a quote:

“Consumers told us we should put Campbell soup in these machines.”
–Green Mountain CEO Brian Kelley

I want to know who these consumers are. First of all, I’m not even sure that the idea of putting coffee in these machines is acceptable! These machines, of course, are the single-serve monstrosities like the Keurig coffeemaker that serve up coffee drinks one K-cup at a time. Ugh. Yes, I get it: convenience wins, it makes sense with multiple users like in an office… and well, that’s all I can think of. “These machines” are glorified coffee vending machines.

Which brings us back to soup. Now, Campbell’s Soup will be available in K-cup form. Stick the soup pod in your coffee maker, press the button and watery soup will be yours to enjoy. If it didn’t happen to be September, I would think this to be an April Fools joke. What, the office doesn’t have a microwave? Ugh. Glad it’s Friday and this thought will be outta my head soon!
