Barilla Pasta CEO's comment


To those CHs living in Italy: Is this causing as much "controversy" in Italy as it is here in the US? I put controversy in quotation marks because I am not convinced it's as much of a hot topic as it's being made out to be.

  1. Oh, I think it is, at least in my neck of the woods.

      Pikawicca, to your knowledge, is this Guido Barilla's first insertion of foot in bocca?

    2. We already have a pretty lively discussion of this news story on our Food Media and News board and we think that's a better place for discussion of people's reactions to these comments, whether in the US or Italy or anywhere else, so we're closing this thread. Please join the other thread at to discuss this story. Thanks!
