Stove Top Stuffing Created Thanksgiving Dinner Pants Because 'Tis The Season For Seconds
In case you had any doubt, the holidays are in full swing. This means menu planning, prepping your answers for awkward family discussions, and looking for the perfect outfit. One food brand is offering to help with one of those tasks — and it's not the one you think. Stove Top created Thanksgiving Dinner Pants that were designed with second-helpings in mind. What a time to be alive, my friends.
While 2016 was the year of models and singers creating their own merch line, 2017 has been the year of food merch. Everyone from KFC to Hidden Valley have created lines inspired by food, but the latest is a little different. Stove Top designed high-waisted, extended waistline sweatpants that are being marketed as Thanksgiving Dinner Pants.
The idea is that normal pants are uncomfortable to wear for a day of non-stop eating. These pants are supposed to help you get comfy. Think pregnancy-styled pants for non-pregnant people.
In true Stove Top fashion, the pants have a stuffing-styled print along the extra-wide waistband. They also fold down to show the quote, "The stuff Thanksgiving is made of," which is the Stove Top slogan. Each pair of pants is only $19.99, and they're available right now on the Stove Top website.
But be warned: There is only one serving of these pants per person. They are just that in-demand. Let's take a closer look.
According to the website, these pants are made for every person in your family. Unfortunately, the sizing doesn't convey that sentiment. After all, the pants are only available in size extra small to extra-large. While this merch is most likely just a gag, they should at least offer sizes for all.
The pants also have "extra-extra large" pockets, in case you're looking to save some for later. Or, you know, carry your phone around to distract you from all the family discussions.
All jokes aside, there is a charitable aspect to the campaign, too. Stove Top is donating $10,000 to Feeding America as part of the pants campaign, according to the press release. It's worth noting, however, that your purchase isn't guaranteed to go directly to Feeding America. The company's donation, after all, will stay the same no matter how many pants are sold throughout the holiday season.
Oddly enough, you won't actually get any stuffing with this purchase. The only thing the $19.99 gets you is a pair of pants for you to wear on the holiday. So don't forget to buy the dehydrated bread before the big day.
People don't really know what to think about these quirky pants. Reactions range from "wait, what?" to "hmm..." to "are you effing kidding???"
Basically, there's a good chance that these slacks won't be the next big trend — especially if the internet has anything to say about it.
Because you were probably too focused on the stuffing-filled turkey, tbh.
Thanksgiving is going to be good this year.... https://t.co/JmXY9cSMmh— Liz McLaughlin (@thatreporter) November 13, 2017
But is it? Is it really?
News pitch of the day: In addition to stuffing, this year Stove Top is selling "unisex, maroon pants" with a giant waist band, calling them Thanksgiving Dinner Pants.— Anne Mostue (@AnneMostue) November 13, 2017
No opinion. All facts.
This photo says way more than I ever could — or would want to.
There's no telling when the food merch trend will finally die. If Stove Top's Thanksgiving Dinner Pants are any sign, it doesn't look like we will get a break from food-based styles any time soon.
These glorious pants will only be available while supplies last, so get them while you can. Ya know, if you're into that for some strange reason.
