This Cheesecake Factory email promotion just appeared in my inbox.  It seems to me to be in incredibly poor taste, but I could be wrong.
Does anybody see a problem with promoting a new “Skinnylicious” menu in the same promotion where you’re advocating for Feeding America's Hunger Action Month?
How about promoting this Skinnylicious menu on the same screenful as the baddest-for-you dessert that they have?
Or, for that matter, sending 25 cents from the purchase of each of those gluttony-requiring desserts to Hunger Action Month?
No?  I guess it’s just me, then.  Harrumph.
