    I hate Christians who hate gays. This is so hard because I like those damn waffle fries.

    UnderArmor
    Ive never owned or thought of ever buying any of their products. But I’ve banned them anyway because the owner seems like a douche and he big game hunts.


    Please tell me about your banned brands so maybe I can add them to my list.

    Chick-Fil-A and Five Guys because they cook in peanut oil and I'm allergic to it :p

    Papa John’s because the owner is a racist ***hole. And even before I knew that, he was whining about “having to” charge more for pizza in order to cover his employees with the ACA and still keep his mansion with the lake behind it. (If he has to charge more for pizza, he wasn’t adequately covering his employees’ health care anyway.)

    Hormel and Smithfield Farms because they let animals drown in the eastern NC hurricanes and were very clear that they didn’t give a ****.

    In seriousness, Papa Johns for the same reasons Anakinsfan mentioned. But also because I hate Peyton Manning. And their pizza sucks. All of it. It's just a terrible brand.

    Papa john's because I had to endure endless Peyton Manning commercials during football games. I will also ban this thread from now on since Vin is it's owner.

    Heyday; Target’s own brand of electronics, but specifically the headphones... break down way too fast, and get too loose in the ear.


    Newport... how does this have such a huge share of the menthol market? Awful smoke.

    Hershey Corporation and all subsidiaries. Because arguing that if you stop using child slave labor the result of increased prices to your consumers would be "unacceptable" is, frankly, beyond unacceptable. And being unwilling - not unable - to actually map out your supply chain to identify slave labor is not an excuse. Nestle, too.

    CFA and Papa John's as mentioned above.

    i think a little research reveals that a majority of these giant corporations are owned by "pricks". with that in mind, i almost never eat at fast food or chain restaurants and try to support small businesses and shop locally. unfortunately, that's not always possible, but i do make a conscious effort.

    Papa Johns for the reasons listed above ( though I try to avoid major chain pizza in general on account of most of it isn't very good.)

    I'll add Five Guys, I think thier burgers and fries are bland and indistinguishable from cheaper fast food burger places while at the same costing significantly more. It's just not worth it to go there.

    Dominoes begs to differ. It's chain pizza that's actually decent and not too expensive. I actually find most local pizza places to be overpriced and underwhelming.

    Yeah, Dominos isn't bad, I think Papa Murphys is pretty solid too, even though it's exclusively take and bake. I'm fortunate to have some pretty good local places in my area too, which is nice.

    I think the idea is that it should require effort.

    Not that I eat chicken to begin with, but KFC can go **** themselves for refusing to reveal where their chickens come from (at least in Sweden). You just know their chicken comes from the very worst kind of chicken factories.

    I've only ever eaten at McDonald's twice in my life, and that was literally decades ago, but their food is just terrible in every way. Though I have to admit I'm a bit curious about the McVegan, so maybe I'll try that some time. Expecting it to be disgusting like the rest of their food though.

    Also, I hate everything Apple, but I am forced to use a Mac at work, so I've only banned them in my private life. The reason I hate Apple - specifically their computers - is that they are like real computers only worse and more expensive, and I'm supposed to look at that as a luxuary, just because they "look cool". Screw that.

    Oh yeah, personally I don't buy anything Apple. I too have to use Apple at work, though.

    if you think domino's is good pizza, i can only conclude you've never had good pizza. :p

    unfortunately, the local places around here aren't too great either. if i want to declare pizza i have to drive like 40 minutes or make it at home.
