    He acts like only people who are gay will be offended by this. How silly of him.

    - In its advertising, Barilla represents the family - "because it's what welcomes everyone and what has always been identified with our brand."
    Irony, thy name is Barilla.

    DeCecco, Rienzi, or Latini for the win.

    With most american pastas you might as well just tear up the cardboard box and throw that into the boiling water.

    btw- ronzoni, prince and san giorgio are all made by the same company, so if you like any of those just buy whichever one is on sale. they're the same.

    That's exactly why I buy ronzoni, its the cheapest of the name brands around here. They are all equally bad, so why pay more.

    I'm going to take them, get some glittery gold paint and make a macaroni vibrator and mail it to them?

    In the interview I simply wished to underline the central role the woman plays within the family."
    My lesbian friends and their children would agree with him here...

    This could actually be a really awesome counter-campaign! We could make a whole series.

    Bertolli Takes Advantage Of Barilla’s PR Problems, Says Their Pasta Is For Everyone


    By Laura Northrup September 27, 2013


    In his controversial interview on an Italian radio program earlier this week, president of pasta company Barilla said that the company would never use the image of a family headed by gay or lesbian parents in one of its ads. Why? “[W]e like the traditional family,” Barilla said. He invited customers to buy a different pasta brand if they disagree. “Challenge accepted,” said Bertolli, a worldwide brand owned by Unilever. Except in Italian.
    Well, German. Bertolli Germany already got to work on social media, producing the graphic that you see above for their Facebook page. “Love and pasta for all,” they captioned it. (Mostly, I’m in love with the little pasta-shell dog.)
