Your company has a commercial selling a meat product. It consists of a boy doing an auction with some of his classmates. A little girl comes in with a pony and he says "Sold to the lady with the pony". He is a small child. When I saw this commercial, I thought it was distasteful because of the lesson that it could be teaching children. I looked at it as a superficial act on his part and so did a couple of my neighbors. This was disturbing. Think about it; I am aware that your company is trying to make money but is this the kind of lesson that we want to be teaching our children? We're not trying to do anything to make this world any more messed up. Everybody is equal. If you wish to contact me, please feel free to do so at any time. Thank you

    This is the funniest commercial I have seen in a long time. I have loved it from the time I first saw it and even looked it up on the internet so I could watch it over and over again. I love the kid. If children are drawn to the commercial it can give parents an opportunity. Perhaps parents should use the commercial as a teaching moment to explain to children the pros and cons of the concept of selling to the highest bidder. Maybe we also should teach our children to not dwell on the negative they perceive, but to concentrate and focus on turning lemons into lemonade more often!

    Ok, well sissie214, in all honesty your complaint doesn't even make sense. Is it my understanding that you feel that having your children see another kid auction/trade off a sandwich to a girl with a pony is somehow morally degrading? I understand maybe if he was not thankful for the sandwich, but it really does not matter. Are you afraid that your kids will think they won't get anything good in life unless they have a pony? Or do you feel that the auctioning kid should have really learned about each kid before deciding who to trade his sandwich to?? Everyone remembers going through a similar event where they had things in their lunch that they didn't like and wanted to trade other kids for something more desirous. But regardless, you make no sense.

    The commercial in itself is the least entertaining of the Hillshire Farm commercials i have seen yet. They are usually hilarious, but this one wasn't even that funny.

    I have used products from Hillshire Farms many times and have had no problem with your products.
    I purchased your Beef Summer Sausage from Wal-Mart Which was very good.
    On a trip to Sam's Club I purchased a package that you call Yard-O-Beef (Beef Summer Sausage ). It was terrible .No Taste mealy with too much fillers.
    Even my Yorkie refuses to eat it.

    I often get bone fragments in their hotdogs. Chipped a tooth on one once. The incisor, you can see the tip is gone
