What Does Pride Taste Like?

This is from a box of Tennessee Pride frozen sausage and egg biscuits. At first I didn't think anything of the packaging, but then my son pointed out how freaky the little Tennessee Pride boy looked.
Then I started to look closer at the box, and this is what I found on the back:
That sent me over the edge. And the horrors of this product don't end here. Believe it or not, there's an actual song about Tennessee Pride products. Click here to listen to the jingle. But be warned: your life will never be the same afterwards.
And as an extra added bonus...we have a questionable usage of quotation marks. Why is "taste the pride" in quotes? Is the freaky Tennessee Pride boy saying this? Should we not really taste any pride? And what does pride taste like, anyway? Is it spicy? Does it have a fishy aftertaste?

I was drinking a beer in Japan called Suntory The Premium Malt's Pilsner, and the apostrophe threw me for a loop. Then I read the label, "a premium pilsner beer, brewed with selected ingredients and pride." I was trying to figure out what pride tasted like when I stumbled upon your site. Perhaps the beer's spicy fishiness is indeed the same pride you noticed in this wonderful sausage.
