Pillsbury views sales with covertly welcoming gaze


Beer and Totino's anyone?

Hot Dish reported last week that alcohol sales are far from waning in the current economic climate.


the Strib reports that

crescent roll king Pillsbury's sales are equally recession-proof.

The article says that sales of the General Mills-owned company's Totino's brand pizza are up 11 percent in the first half of fiscal year, pizza rolls 10 percent. Apparently, those $1-per-pizza deals are starting to look pretty damn enticing even outside the starving artist set.
