Chia Obama Finds Home On CVS Shelves



If you are easily offended ... This story isn't for you.

Finally it's back. I was delighted that Walgreens was going to sell this along with all the other cheesy Chia gifts. I've never given one nor received one.

BUT they pulled them from test areas before I could I get one... "because it's racist" or some such nonsense.

I have gotta get me one of these!

The Chia Obama is making a comeback on drug store shelves, more than five months after Walgreens yanked it over concerns that it might offend customers.

CVS stores began stocking the special edition Chia in select markets this week, according to the company that produces it -- just in time for the holiday season.

"This is what we wanted to do all along," said Michael Hirsch, vice president at Joseph Enterprises. "We're pretty excited."

The Chia Obama is a bust of the 44th president with sprouting grass-like "hair" in the tradition of the classic Chia Pet.

The product appears to be back on track after the dust-up with Walgreens in April, when the company dropped it over concerns that it could be subject to "misinterpretation."

I'm sorry.

How is this offensive or racist?

I'm just not seeing it, by looking at the product... I'm failing to see the racism in it...

If anyone could clarify what i'm missing.

lol, if only you could plant broccali.

Then we'd go back to my first avatar picture!

Brocobama!

Doesn't even look like him IMO. Whatever, if people want to spend their money on something stupid like this then it's their money they are throwing away. I think they are pretty stupid myself but they have been around for a couple of decades now so someone must be buying them.

Remember it's the thought that counts.

It would make an amusing addition to any kitchen next to the coffee maker.

Huge fun factor! (but then I'm easily amused.)

Gotta have it!

They should have made one for Lady Michelle, too. She's the one with the Green Thumb!
