Incomplete, content issues[edit]

I cannot believe a product as universal as Totino's has such a small and incomplete Wiki entry! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.218.238.142 (talk) 23:24, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Some people refer to Totino's as Toastinos!
I regularly see Totinos Pizza sold for less than a USA dollar. It's said that yah' gets whatcha' pays for. Gotta' be a moral in here somewhere. Right?68.13.191.153 19:29, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
What on Earth does the FCC have to do with trans fats? Fledchen 22:15, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

Spice?[edit]

what is the funny looking spice they use that looks much like a seed and it's got a pretty overwhelming flavor. anybody? (pinkie) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.59.226.12 (talk) 06:44, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Burrito[edit]

Throw one in the microwave and then roll it up like a burrito and enjoy. yummmm 65.42.26.190 (talk) 15:40, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Availability[edit]

The article does not mention where Totino's is sold. I could deduce that it is an American product, but this should be made explicit. Is it available outside of the United States? Is it available nation-wide? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.239.215.241 (talk) 18:54, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Major Issues[edit]

There are a few major claims in this article that are not substantiated by any citations. Namely, the very high trans fat issues with relation to Totino's pizza no longer using 100% real cheese. This is actually very troubling and important information that needs to be cited by a reputable source. If it's false, it needs to be removed immediately. If it's true, it needs to be cited. 216.134.239.100 (talk) 01:56, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

These edits were made by User:Sailoralea [2] and User:4.240.150.147.[3] I have removed them, as I can't find reliable sources to back them up. Jokestress (talk) 11:11, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Philanthropy Section[edit]

This section was deleted a few months back. I agree with the rationale, but I think adding the info is still relevent. Could someone rework this so that it isn't as self-promoting?

//Philanthropy//

− The Totino's name is also given to Totino-Grace High School, a private Roman Catholic high school in Fridley, Minnesota. The high school was originally called Grace, but was changed to the current name after Jim and Rose Totino helped the school stay open during its early days. In addition to their countless gifts to the school, they later gave the school its first million dollar gift.

− − The Totino name also adorns the auditorium on the campus of Northwestern College in Roseville, Minnesota. The Totino Fine Arts Center has both an auditorium as well as classrooms.

That information has been moved to the biography of Rose Totino, as it is not directly related to the brand. Jokestress (talk) 04:50, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
