The Fuming Fuji Says No to Gogurt

By Worker Bee

The Fuji

The Fuming Fuji is outraged at the marketing of toxic food, especially when it’s aimed at the small fry. This week, the Fuming Fuji has decided to have a serious problem with Gogurt.

But, Fuming Fuji, you ask, isn’t calcium on-the-go better than a popsicle?

The Fuming Fuji says no!

The claim: Apparently, kids can’t get enough of the cool wonderfulness of flavors like “Cool Cotton Candy”. Yoplait says – and the Fuji quotes – “wholesome goodness.”

The catch: Gogurt is like crack for youngsters, only sweeter.

The comeback: Oh, come on, it’s better than a popsicle.

The conclusion: The Fuming Fuji tried to ignore your popsicle comparison the first time you asked it. Just because yogurt is not quite as bad as a popsicle does not make it healthy. Gogurt is a sugar-laden, chemical-filled joke!

The catchphrase:
Gogurt – just like yogurt, only really terrible.

Disclaimer: Mark Sisson and the Worker Bees do not necessarily endorse the views of the Fuming Fuji.
