What the YUCK!
Why are we as Americans or human beings so fat? I don't mean fat in poundage. I mean fat in our thinking. Corporations are always thinking up new ways to make our food fatter and our fat-minded asses are always willing to try it. I call some of these things "made up food" meaning it is food that didn't exist in the combination it's being marketed in or in any form a few decades ago. One of the earliest examples that I know of is McDonald's attempt at selling people the pineapple burger. This was for Catholics who didn't eat meat on Fridays during Lent and it was before they came up with the Filet-o-Fish. Now C'mon, you know you woulda tried this non-sense (grilled pineapple slice and a slice of cheese in between 2 buns.. YUM). But anyway here are some of my recent faves:
- Dunkin Donuts Sausage Pancake Bites - Because sausage and pancakes aren't fat enough on their own. Here are the ingredients in case your mouth isn't watering yet. Move over pigs-in-a-blanket. We got pigs in a pancake cocoon of fatness.
- The McDonald's McGriddle - Because the egg McMuffin isn't fat enough for us fattys. Bread is boring. Let's bake some maple flavoring into the pancake (instead of pouring maple flavored high fructose corn syrup on top) AND get half the calories you need for the entire day before noon..Awesome! Care to know what this is made of? go ahead? click here take a look.. I didn't think you would.
ok ok no more picking on breakfast. on to my next fave!
- The KFC Double Down - because plain old bread isn't fat enough. Let's just skip the fluff and sandwich some bacon and cheese and mystery sauce 'tween two ginormous hormone injected chicken breasts, get the fried version for extra all American fatness.
The list of made up food is endless. Enjoy! And don't forget to give thanks tomorrow. By EATING.
