“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?
Backlash, or rumor control?
All we have is "Diane H. of Michigan" saying that this policy ever existed. And the AFA, which has been known to overdo the "war on Christmas" rhetoric because it's good for their fundraising.
All we know is that Mrs. Fields didn't have Christmas cookies listed on its site in early October. The AFA sent out a letter. Mrs. Fields issued a statement. Anything past that is rumor and supposition. It doesn't have to be true to be damaging -- just ask Procter & Gamble, which has been battling unfounded rumors for 30 years or so.
ANd now they have a brief blurb up ensuring that there will be plenty of christmas cheer., and showing a preview of all their products.
You know, it’s almost like a marketing ploy to get a lot of people to associate Mrs. Fields and Christmas Cookies.
Wow that was fast...what idiot
in their company who used to work for their company didnt think there would be a huge backlash? Now isn't that better?
I suddenly have an appetite for Mrs. Fields cookies.
Where do I get one?
Wait a minute. What if businesses discover that the best way to get attention is to ban Christmas and then quickly restore it to win gratitude?
The one on vacation.
