This is a bandwagon jump for the company. All of one woman spoke up about the name being offensive-

I heard that rice krispies: Snap, Krackle and Pop are heading for the chopping black, they were deemed racist. Suppose the Keebler Elf will be soon.
How dare you bring up the Elf race in jest? Are they a joke to you? Just some funny looking people born to make cookies and toys? Disgusting.

Eskimo is the n word for those people. And always has been.
I can't believe so many people don't know that.

They're Inuits. NOT ESKIMOS! Deal with it. All the outrage here over changing a derogatory name for an icecream bar, is worse than the "lefties" you're all sooking about.... Honestly, this isn't about lefties, it's about cleaning up our cr@ppy use of language anmd fixing up some of the cr@p historical things we've done. Get over it, the world is changing.

I'm seriously worried now about what might happen to my favorite snack food, Honkey Bites.
WTF? That’s a messed up thing to say.
Wait until they get to the racist Saltine crackers.
Saltine Crackers should have been discontinued decades ago. They have so little flavor, they actually kill the taste of whatever you put on them. As if their flavor is a negative value!
I wonder if some of this is just the brand owners seizing the opportunity to re-launch sub-par brands. I mean, Uncle Ben's rice is just about the worst rice you could ever find. Aunt Jemima rates below frozen waffles you put in the toaster, in my book. And to be honest, the best pancake syrup out there actually comes from McDonalds! It manages to be sweet, without being overwhelmingly sweet like most pancake syrups are.
As for Eskimo Pie, let's face it: If you want a chocolate-covered ice cream treat, you go get a Klondike Bar.

When did Eskimo even become a derogatory term? This as stupid as not being able to call a midget a midget because it's considered derogatory. I'd think the term was better than "little person".

Putting it out there. Both the crappy Indians and equally crappy Redskins will be forced to change their names causing Yankees and Giants fans to howl with laughter at them.
