Largest Homeroaster Green Vendor Sweetmarie's Bought by Kraft Foods in
Surprise Move...by Will B. Strungalungh
In a surprise announcement, Kraft Foods announced yesterday that it is
entering the home roasting coffee business.  To show its earnestness in
developing a relationship with the growing number of Americans who roast
their own coffee, Anne V. Robertssen, VP - Ventures and Acquisitions,
announced that Kraft had bought the premier purveyor of green coffee beans
for the homeroaster...
Unbelievable news.  I would never had thought this day would come..  Just
goes to show, I guess we all have our price.http://xrl.us/KraftFoodsKen Bozarth

2) From: Michael Wascher
Yep, Kaft plans to integrate SweetMaria's into the VeryFine division,
supplying high-quality pre-bottled coffees in a variety of flavors. Ummm,
SweetMaria's Mocha boysenberry no-cal no-fat lattes (natural & artifical
flavorings & coloring) in juice-box packaging.
How convenient!

This was a very good prank... had me going for at least a couple of
seconds... but I just KNEW that Tom would never sell out!  Oops... I
should never say never!  But you never will sell out will you Tom?   I
certainly hope not!  The fact that this prank stopped so many hearts
today should  be an indication of just how much we appreciate your
wisdom, experience and kindness!  Keep it up!  ~carlos
