I remember when Goya was such a successful company that they could pay for advertising.

Now I need a replacement for coconut milk that is similar priced. Enjoy my curry and tropical drinks.

I eat Real American food like hot dogs and Kraft Mac and Cheese so I've already cancelled them.

I was in an Asian grocery Sunday picking up supplies for pad thai on orders from my wife.  I was examining some Goya palm sugar for the sauce, trying to figure out a substitute since I wasn't going to buy their products since their CEO had just doubled down on his Trump comments.

A couple of black women passed behind me, and one muttered, "Uh uh.  Can't buy that Goya shiat no more."  I think she was talking to her companion, not me, since the whole section was filled with Goya products on both sides.  I turned and told her, "Glad I'm not the only one!" before putting the sugar back and, sharing a knowing and approving look with her, moved on.

Bleak, despairing times, but that made my day.

My favorite is when Ted Cruz conflated "Latin culture" with "Goya," as if they were the exact same thing, saying liberals were attacking "Latin culture"

What a farking chunt.

It's frustrating watching the wealthy that screw us over espouse policies and politicians that screw us over, especially when they have a grip on products we depend on at prices we can mostly afford.

I'm just patiently waiting for drawing, quartering, and general disembowelment of the wealthy comes back in fashion.

I think it's the right wing's wet dream to make a talking point catch on that paints the left as somehow unfriendly to minorities. Because that would allow them to score race points without actually having to do anything helpful or substantive on the issue.

I will look for a sale, the Thai is normally double the cost of Goya.  I use about a dozen cans a month.

lol remember when coconut water became a thing to white people? And like Goya had been selling it for years at every mercado in the US? Now white people are hating Goya. I feel bad for them, white people be so crazy.
 
2020-07-13 4:32:18 PM  
I don't get Goya.  They sell rice and beans, and they're about 40% more expensive than the store brand.  It's just rice and beans.  g

Prior to all hell breaking loose I stocked up on tons of non-1perishables (hey I live in Florida so if anything they're hurricane supplies). Unfortunately this included tons of Goya canned beans and some other Goya seasonings. Wife and I gathered all we had in the house and donated them to the local food bank that usually we just make a monetary donation to.

Yeah yeah, "they already have your money" - we know. We won't be buying from them ever again. Already replaced our pantry with other companies that we made sure weren't associated with Goya.  Enjoy you're free advertising Goya, we'll see how that plays out for you in the long run.
 
2020-07-13 4:45:25 PM  
I still have some of their seasonings, but have been replacing them with Chef Merito seasonings. That Chicken one is the farking bomb. https://www.chefmerito.com/Category

Publix ain't cheap and the one by me has a good 20 feet of nothing but Goya products.... Not a heavily populated Hispanic area either. So yeah, not sure what you're on about.

Costco sells it. I have like 8 cans of goya black beans. I am assuming that by the time I need more, something will have resolved itself

Over my long years, I've seen a lot of times where "the people" get pissed off at some company and declare,m "I'll never buy from them again!!", but for the life of me, I can't remember a single company that has had any long term affect. Does anybody have an example?

Google coconut milk and choose the shopping tab. There are cheaper.
I'd stay away from Polar. Something about that brand just doesn't sit right with me, but that's me.

Likwit: "There is no ethical consumption under capitalism."

captainpicardfacepalm.jpg



Actually i fully agree with that under capitolalism, nearly all consumption is unethical, including food and water.

Like this:
Say the phrase affordable, in front of any necessary for life item, and all you said was:

afford what we say or just to die already from dehydration, starvation or exposure to the elements.


As long as anyone in a business gets to take home the "lion's share" of the rewards while they themselves ask others to risk their very lives to generate those profits for them (coal miners, ocean fishing, major construction, and tons of factory work is life risking and health damaging to do.


As long as the pay curve is the exact opposite of the personal safety and health risks curve, we are totally immoral, in the way we distribute RISK and REARWARDS in the supposedly free market.


As well, if you can't know peronsally objectively the facts of internal business running.
Then to give them your money under the ASSUMPTION of not being immoral seems pretty ify to me.

I'd say anyone not bothering to do all the detailed researcher before handing out their money in the free market is an unethical consumer.
Go on, tell us how each and every penny you spend with anyone is totally research and objectively understood to be going to people that operate 100% above board ethical all the time.
You'd not be so unethical as to blindly financially support  people that you know nothing about, right?

So again anyone handing out their money without that personal due diligence, kinda looking like they might be consuming unethically there to me. you know assuming ignorance is no excuse right?

Actually I do quite a bit of research and I try to make as many ethical decisions as possible (I'm on a 100% renewable tariff, I'm off of gasoline and gas, I buy local produce, I grow most of my own carbs, I'm off of Amazon and Walmart, etc). But I reject the entire premise. "Capitalism bad" is not an argument. Further, anyone who says producers take home the "lion's share" of the reward either started Das Kapital and never finished it or is extremely financially and economically illiterate.

Is this the thread where we pretend skipping over one can of black beans will bankrupt Goya?  I'll just buy whatever's on sale. If Goya is on sale, I'll buy it. I don't prefer one brand over the other, and I couldn't give less of a sh*t what this guy had to say. I have patients who are massive Trump supporters. Should I stop treating them except for emergent care?  The virtue signaling is getting out of hand.
Protip: the owner of your preferred brands probably have some bizarre political beliefs.

My favorite is all the conservatives loosing their mind over this. They are literally threatening to buy Goya products and donate them to food pantries...

No stop don't do that, I'm going to get sooooo mad if you donate food that we're boycotting. I'm soo triggered right now. (Sarcasm for those who may have missed it)
