Honey Maid posted a new YouTube video in response to comments they received following the release of their “This is Wholesome” campaign ad last month.

The company’s commercial celebrated families and love. Different types of families, including a single dad, parents of different races and LGBT parents are showcased enjoying themselves.

The makers of Teddy Grahams received an overwhelming number of comments and feedback via social media after the ad was posted.

The company posted another video Thursday responding to all those comments.

The new video first responds to the negative comments and then responds to the positive. The video says they received over ten times as many positive comments than negative.
