Skip to comments.Mrs. Fields bans Christmas from their products (AFA email)

Mrs. Fields has become the first company to ban Christmas from their products and promotion for this year.
When Diane H. of Michigan called Mrs. Fields and asked to speak with a supervisor in customer service about why they banned Christmas, the supervisor told Diane that they do not offer anything with Merry Christmas because they don't want to offend anyone.
Take a look at Mrs. Fields Holiday Gift Preview by clicking here. In the "search" bar, type in the word "Christmas." But don't expect to find any reference to Christmas. (If you do, it has been added since this letter was written.)
Mrs. Fields wants the business of Christians who celebrate Christmas, but they dont mind if they offend Christians.

What is there to be upset about? Mrs Fields does NOT want Christmas business. So honor “her” request.
ANY and ALL purchases made for the celebration of Christmas should be made elsewhere, at and from companies that welcome same.
If there happens to be a needed purchase for no particular reason, then consider (only) these GRINCHES.
The best revenge is giving these idiots what they want.
Perhaps you could start up your own business and be a competitor for Mrs. Fields’ customers?
and I will ban Mrs Feilds products from my presence.
I get most of our stuff from Harry and David anyway.
“Mrs. Fields has apparently heard the complaints. They are claiming products are on the way. A pic of a cookie with Merry Christmas decorated in icing is on their home page.”
Wow that was fast...what idiot in their company didn’t think there would be a huge backlash?
Yep, they are. Last time I had a product of theirs, it was stale to be honest. But I know people that swear by them.
Folks, the Christmas stuff simply isn’t out yet. Don’t you think it would be a tad early to be making that stuff at this point?
Does that list still fit in a folder, or have you had to move to a binder?
I agree. If they tell us our religion is offensive to them, that’s o.k. We,Christians, being good and decent people will not offend them by purchasing their products. We will find someone who isn’t afraid to associate with Christians.
It offends me that they took Christ out of Christmas.
HA...had a conversation with my 16 yo niece this summer..we were talking about Christianity....since she is uneducated and unbelieving in Christianity (except by me)....I asked her why she celebrated CHRISTmas which she loves.....since it is Christ’s Mass....I think this year she will be really thinking about it differently. Unfortunately she’s not unusual....there is so much secularization of Christmas - it’s just a reason to PARTEEEE.
I got this email yesterday and mailed them my thoughts. No shopping at Mrs. Fields for me.
I was on a thread yesterday, about Chinese products and how their might not be enough of them on the shelves this Christmas. A Freeper there suggested the same. Make your own presents, bake up some cookies, make some fudge, spend time as a family and pray. Real radical stuff.
Have a REAL Christmas instead of the highly commercialized, make money off those stupid Christians, while we make Christians the butt of slander the rest of the year, businesses.
I’m with you on it!!
do a search for “ Christmas”... NOTHING!!!! they may have pacified the Christian Holiday by that big cookie with Merry Christmas but no Christmas search!!! BAH HUMBUG... I will make my own , thankyou!
The list is getting quite large. It is now stored on a hard drive.
Ha! Now their home page is covered with CHRISTMAS! Didn’t take ‘em long to figure it out.
