Donald Trump served up some medium-rare controversy Tuesday night as he showed off his line of Trump Steaks, Trump Wine and Trump Water during a news conference to tout his primary wins in Michigan and Mississippi.

But reporters questioned whether some of the products are still being sold and discovered that some of the steaks, bizarrely carried the name "Bush Brothers" instead of "Trump."

The odd product placements at Trump's golf course in Jupiter, Fla., were an obvious nose-thumbing at Mitt Romney, who last week implied the billionaire developer had numerous business failures including Trump Airlines, Trump University, Trump Magazine, Trump Vodka, Trump Steaks, Trump Mortgage.

"He said, 'Trump Magazine is out,'" Trump said as he held a copy in one hand. "I said, 'It is?' I thought I saw one two days ago."

"You have the water — you have the steaks. You have the wines and all of that … I brought some things up because, [Romney] said, 'Water company is gone.' I said, 'It is?' I didn't know that."

"He talked about the water company. Well, there's the water company. I mean, we sell water. And we have water, and it's a very successful, you know, it's a private little water company, and I supply the water for all my places, and it's good. But it's very good."

Trump then waxed poetic over his steaks, raw slabs of which sat on a table next to his podium.

"We have Trump steaks. And by the way, [if] you want to take one, we charge you about, what, 50 bucks a steak?" he said.

Trump steaks had been sold by The Sharper Image, but have since been discontinued and the labels on the steaks at the press conference appeared to match those of a firm ironically called "Bush Brothers Provisional Company," Business Insider reports.

A club staff member told the Associated Press that the meat company — no relation to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush whom Trump battled earlier in the campaign — is the firm that supplies the Jupiter club.
