Good for Target for trying to enter into this market.

Since when is eating healthy and not popping a pill for everything "Pagan"? For that matter, I know Pagans who like Twinkies and Kool-Aid, that doesn't make them any less Pagan.
Stereotypes need to be broken down and the truths exposed. While I understand the need at times for "Labels" I've never found a Stereotype that's 100% accurate.

Oh, advertising always relies on stereotyping, doesn't it?

I would love to see how the writer/Target figures they are a favorite of the Pagan crowd...? if you really want to talk generic Pagan values in eco/healthy consumption; how about small local grocers, farmer's markets, CSA's, co-ops, community gardens, etc.

This is brilliant: Wal Mart Christians Target pagans.

just another boundary. Being made larger by economics. Yea, I'm a pagan but I'll stab you in the eye if you take away my cherry Pepsi and Sunkist fruit snacks (which are amazing), that doesn't me I don't exercise a little to compensate, but never the less I kinda get where Proud is coming from, but what frightens me the most is that we (and I use that word very loosely now) have became a market tatgetable culture.

And the author of the story dose not see the stereotyping in it. There is no talking of it.

Having watched US paganism for thirty years I have found NO traits that more than 40% share. This is just merchandising.
