Basta Barilla Pasta

[post redacted because thinks that links to their ridiculous rag are a bad thing. Somebody might want to tell them how the internet works. Or not. We don't really care. They do suck though. Our advice is that you should not click on the link and whatever you do, don't read their truly terrible articles.]

Never liked Barilla, it always tasted like they added some kind of sweetner to it. DeCecco is my brand. I hope they don't hate the gays.

You should be being fresh ingredients and making your own

Store brand no-name is just as good. It's just flour and water for God's sake.

I raise my own grains and make my own pasta. It's really easy.

I hate when these people try to back pedal.

I hope the company and shareholders decide they cannot live with the repercussions of his comments.

So, it's HIS fault you weigh 350 lbs??? Gimme a break.

The man is an idiot but he isn't responsible for other people's health issues. Jeez.

I can't boycott it any more than I already do. I hate Barilla.

Has Lydia weighed in on this?

r9, it's a privately-held company; perhaps his brothers will kick him out.

Do any old school DLers remember a guy who was friends with someone in advertising, and they used a picture of him for a Barilla ad? He was so cute...

I'll never by the blue box pasta again, thanks for letting me know.

I love how he said that gay people should go eat other brands, but when they promise to do just that (by boycotting), there's a huge backtrack (and the usual conservative voices calling a boycott a witch-hunt - um, he basically invited us to boycott his brand, dip-shits).

By the way, when I saw this posted on Facebook, what was heartening was how many straight people said they wouldn't be buying it anymore, or throwing theirs out - even if this guy doesn't care if gay people buy his pasta, he'll sure as hell give a shit when their straight friends stop buying it too.

I do remember that James Rhine of Big Brother 6 appeared as a model in a Barilla ad shortly after his brief reality TV fame. We talked about it here; could that have been it?

Because we're all manorexics and boylimics like R18.

That pasta tastes like glue.

I've found other brands that are better and their jar sauce tastes like red water. I'll have no trouble bypassing their shit in the grocery aisle. It is good to know these things.

by Anonymousreply 2109/26/2013

Who eats sauce from a jar, anyway?

by Anonymousreply 2209/26/2013

Well...that`s a hipster thing.

by Anonymousreply 2309/26/2013

I gave up on jars of sauce a very long time ago.

It all tastes like shit and the ingredients are often crap.

Better to buy a can of fire roasted tomatoes and use that over pasta, adding other vegetables if desired.

by Anonymousreply 2409/26/2013

Some jarred sauces are pretty good. San Marzano makes a good one and so does Amy's.

by Anonymousreply 2509/26/2013

Okay, R27, you keep eating those and I...won't.

by Anonymousreply 2609/26/2013

You take that back you raunchy slob, r28!

by Anonymousreply 2709/26/2013

That's fine, r28, you don't and we will.

He's just being honest. No Italian brand would put gay couples on their adverts anyway.

by Anonymousreply 2909/26/2013

They put porn stars in parliament but they can't show a gay person eating pasta? No wonder they were an axis power.

by Anonymousreply 3009/26/2013

A lot of stores feature the "homemade" pasta in cellophane bags. But honestly, I make my own. It's just so easy. I keep some penne on hand, but for spaghetti or fettuccini, or linguini, I make my own.

My boyfriend thinks I'm a gourmet cook. His idea of spaghetti was buying egg noodles, yes, egg noodles, Kraft Parmesan cheese in that gross little green shaker box, and a can of tomato sauce with garlic powder and onions. It made me weep.

I have been buying the Barilla Plus because it is tastier and healthier than the whole wheat.

I won't buy it again and have emailed the company to tell them so.

The BEST part of these things is always the backtrack the next day. Love it!
