Congratulations Aunt Jemima!
We’re glad that, after 131 years, Pepsi will rebrand Aunt Jemima to remove the racist connotations behind the imagery and title. However, we would like to take the time to acknowledge the brands owned by US, that don’t need to rebrand in order to provide us with bare-minimum economic respect.
Listed below are 5 businesses we can fully support instead. Enjoy the most important meal of the day, while supporting US!
