  • Does it smell like vanilla? Racist? No. Could they have thought of a better way to describe their product? Oh yes.

  • does it smell like vanilla? and the "pride" comes from it being an American flag right?

    i dont personally see it as racist, tho i get why some would come to the conclusion that they are saying "white ppl pride is American pride" or something like that. really i just see it as piss poor marketing and product naming.

  • It has overtones of bigotry, but it may be just poorly thought out marketing.

    If there's vanilla pride out there, I guess I must be neopolitan. I like lots of flavors.

  • Why because they are proud of their product and either they all are vanilla based or the first one was.
    Seems like a real stretch to me.
