But, Fuming Fuji, you ask, isn’t popcorn shrimp rich in protein? I thought seafood was healthy! Aren’t we supposed to eat […]

Humble Goals

One more thing on fried Coke bonbons, from the creator’s mouth (who I am sure is a perfectly nice guy), one Mr. Gonzales: “The best I can hope for is that it’s the original and hopefully the best fried Coke out there.” Technorati Tags: fried Coke, fried food, weird foods

Stretching, Defined

The Quote of the Day, from Pizza Hut‘s website: “Pizza can be a part of a well-balanced meal. Ingredients in our pizzas include protein, complex carbohydrates, Vitamin A and calcium. And, depending on the toppings you choose, our pizzas have items from all of the four major food groups – meat, dairy products, fruits and […]

Trans Fat in NYC, Foie Gras in Chicago

It’s Prohibition all over again. What do you all think about major cities banning certain fattening foods? Is this blatantly unconstitutional, or simply in the interest of public health? In recent months Chicago has attempted to ban foie gras (French for greasy grease) and New York has now rumbled to restaurants about frying foods in […]
