Writer's Block: Supersize me

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?


I boycotted Coke products back in the 80's, but I now can't remember why that was. (It actually DIDN'T have anything to do with the New Coke BS, but I really can't remember what the reason was.) I drank RC for a few years, then went back.

I boycotted Cracker Barrel for their anti-gay policies and while they have changed said policy publicly, I haven't actually had a chance to reverse my boycott since.

We boycott Wal-Mart, well, most people should know why that is.

I don't call my eschewing of Hershey products a boycott, per se, more an acknowledgment of their increasing crappiness.

I think if I ever had to stop drinking Diet Coke, whether for ideological reasons or otherwise, I'd die. And...I can't boycott Wal-Mart, because it's literally the only option here. No Target, no K-Mart, and sometimes you just need that kind of store. I do what I can elsewhere, but somtetimes there's no choice. ::feels guilty::

And that's one BIG reason why those of us with choice do so, because they have made small towns like yours solely dependent on them.

And yeah, these days I doubt I could boycott Coke again. I've become so dependent upon Diet Coke it's almost frightening. (I wish I could remember. I do remember buying and drinking Diet RC...)
