Starting in 2007, Trump Steaks were featured in the Sharper Image catalogue, on QVC and sold online. However, the meat sales were so anemic, the product soon disappeared.

Sharper Image"s Jerry Levin told Think Progress, "We literally sold almost no steaks," adding, "If we sold $50,000 of steaks grand total, I"d be surprised."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trump Ice, a natural spring water, is available for purchase inside Trump Tower in New York City. Additionally, the company"s website says the water is "proudly served at Trump Hotels, Restaurants and golf clubs worldwide."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Virginia-based Trump Winery is a 1,300-acre estate offering red, white and sparkling wines from grapes first planted in 1999. The candidate"s son, Eric Trump, is president of the winery. The operation has a tasting room, a connection to a luxury hotel with views of the vineyard and is also a destination for events like weddings.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The glossy magazine launched in 2007 and was available quarterly until 2009.

Despite the fact Donald Trump tossed a copy of the magazine to people in the crowd at his press conference Tuesday, the magazine is not currently available on newsstands.

TheBlaze has asked the Trump campaign where interested readers can find the magazine. We will update this post when we receive a response

What is wrong with this man. He has to be nuts, there is no other explanation.

The guy is certifiable. Does he think that no one would notice that the stake were clearly marked with another companies packaging? Does he have no idea that these company's are out effectively out of business?

Its like the bu11sh1t better business bureau thing. I think he is accustom to talking out his a$$ and having no one check up on him.

Trump Wines (previously Kluge) do make a very nice product (especially sparking wines). Virginia wines are just, in general, underrated and underpriced, being undiscovered at this point and suffering from a marketability problem. They'll probably become popular on a national over the next decade if they can step up their PR game. A lot of big names are investing in the Finger Lakes region, so that will be boosting the profile of the eastern US in general over the next few years.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Rebranding happens all the time, it's not like Walmart actually has factories that makes stuff....

Anyway, that Trump steak looks extra juicy on the QVC! Yum!

At his most recent press conference, he had "trump steaks" on display, even though the manufacturer no longer produces it. Seriously, he went ahead and purchased some regular steak and decided to display it, purporting to show one of his products. And the most irritating part about things like this is that they're so inane and inconsequential that no one really pursues them,.... but it shows that he lies casually and routinely. It's disgusting.

Yea, but they are NOT re-branding. The article states that QVC is not selling the product. So... This is what we in the royal navy call - a lie.

Way to miss the point. ONE out of all the products discussed are in business in any meaningful way.

He completely bullsh1ted about the BBB and Trump University. He offers a photo-op with Trump stakes that aren't Trump stakes. The guy has a very real narcissism problem.

Outside of The Apprentice and Trump Tower, I can't think of real successes for this "winner". The list of looser is notorious long! Almost all the branding stuff has been complete failure, yet he wants to peg that as almost half his net worth?

Lol, no he didn't. The BBB confirmed his statement: before closing, it had an A+ rating.

"During the period when Trump University appeared to be active in the marketplace, BBB received multiple customer complaints about this business," the New York area BBB and its national headquarters said in a statement released today. "These complaints affected the Trump University BBB rating, which was as low as D- in 2010," the statement said.

"As the company appeared to be winding down, after 2013, no new complaints were reported. Complaints over three years old automatically rolled off of the Business Review, according to BBB policy. As a result, over time, Trump University"s BBB rating went to an A in July 2014 and then to an A+ in January 2015."

Alright, Dr. TBR. It's nice to see that psychiatry has made such leaps and bounds that it's now possible for laymen to diagnose people they've never met. And how is this even narcissism, lol? He's certainly projects a self-absorbed persona, but lying about his steak company has nothing to do with that; it was a political maneuver.

Yea. Read what it says, and what Trump was spinning. Do you think this was honest? The BBB had to come out and explain it, and the current rating is not an A. So... Trump talking out his a$$, right?

Nope. It has no rating. The last reported on rating was a D-, and the last rating given was an A+. That's exactly what Trump claimed by the end of the eschange with Megyn Kelly: that the rating came up from a D- to an A+.

In this case it means his love for all things Trump bind him to his own crap. He has lost all objectivity on how people perceive his nonsense.

Whatever. Any honest discussion of the BBB incident would come to the conclusion that Trump "spun" this in a very dishonest way. Any honest evaluation of the infomercial pushing "trump" products that weren't Trump products at all would come to the conclusion that he has a loose connection with reality and thinks (no knows) you will buy whatever line of crap he is selling.
