Oprah has been schilling all kinds of shit for years, and I’m on board for all of it. I live for Oprah’s Favorite Things to be released every year before Christmas, not because I’m actually going to buy any of it, but just because I like to see what Ms. Winfrey is loving (or being paid to say she loves). Basically, I think Oprah shits gold and I’d support any venture she undertakes, including her newly trademarked Oprah’s Kitchen food business.
From The New York Post:
The May 19 applications cover a supermarket’s worth of products, such as basic staples like dairy, meat, fish, processed and preserved foods, spices, juices, water, lemonade, baked goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, but also speciality items such as cut flowers, beer and energy drinks.
And, the paperwork suggests, Winfrey is considering a line of Oprah bacon, baked beans, sorbet, pickles, canned fish, fruit leather and even caviar.
UHHH, SIGN ME UP. I would eat Oprah bacon, like, tomorrow. I don’t really know how she can actually market produce because it’s… fruit and vegetables. Maybe if she’s doing prepared/packaged vegetable or fruit products? I don’t know, but I can’t wait to find out. I probably won’t actually ever buy any of them (although I might, just for posterity) but it’s going to make her way richer.
I want Oprah to live forever, but given she’s worth billions of dollars and has no children, I’ll be interested to see who she leaves all her money to one day.
Would you eat Oprah bacon?
