CONVENTION 2000 / THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

What Looks Like Cheese and Smells Like Tobacco?

August 15, 2000

One goodie conspicuously missing from the delegate welcome bags is a box of "limited-edition" Kraft Macaroni & Cheese in donkey and star shapes. Kraft Foods had handed out its elephants-and-stars version at the Republicans' convention in Philadelphia two weeks ago but had the door slammed here. Democrats have banned tobacco money from their convention, and Kraft is owned by Philip Morris. Kraft is distributing boxes at gatherings outside the convention.
