from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We’ve talked about monopolies of various kinds around here before, because monopolies are oftentimes fascinating examples of markets not quite doing what most folks think markets should do.

I am the creator/innovator/ of the PEANUT BUTTER FILLED PRETZEL (1983) 100% DOCUMENTED CONAGRA BRANDS/ AND MAXIM are now aware! GOOGLE BRUCEGUTTERMAN also BRUCEGUTTERMANPEANUTBUTTER. This MARCH,2014, will be the 31 year anniversary of the ORIGINAL PEANUT BUTTER FILLED PRETZEL, NUTTER NUGGETS,owned by my other company,SNACKS-R-SPECIALTY. The “KEY”, when you read, holds the clue to its ORIGIN/CREATION/INVENTION/INNOVATION. MAXIM is unable to provide ONE MOLECULE of EVIDENCE/DOCUMENTATION to the PEANUT BUTTER FILLED PRETZEL. That is why CONAGRA BRANDS,who knows of my CONNECTION/CONTRIBUTION/CREATION OF the P.B.FILLED PRETZELS ORIGIN refers to MAXIMS FALSE PROCLAMATION as BASELESS and does not wish to make any further statement at this time. ( CONAGRA’S STATEMENT as of FEB.24,2014.
