  • Favorite Frankenfood

    And by favorite I mean most baffling / favorite one to mock.

    Mine is a recent discovery. I was walking down the dairy aisle to grab a pint of heavy cream a couple weeks ago when I see no less than three brands of *fat free half and half* . . . I startled some other customers by exclaiming out loud, *How the hell do they even do that?*

    It's half milk and half cream.

    Cream.

          How about margarine? I'd rather nothing than eat that yellow gunk.

          The Becel demo girl was at the grocery store not long ago promoting that frankenfood. I asked her to explain to me how that is better than eating real butter. I had her perturbed.

            I'd much rather drink a soda with sugar than with HFCS.

            For me it is all the meatless meat products...veggie burgers, soy sausage, tofurkey etc. If you want to be a vegan or a vegetarian then knock yourself out - eat vegetables. Don't make some lame look alike without all the meaty goodness. It is like a dude who builds and dates a robot woman - sad, just freaking sad (and pathetic, can I add pathetic?)

              Today at the store I saw a jerky brand called "Primal" at check-out. I was like "oh, what's that," before I saw that it was a meatless, vegan line.

                When my wife and daughter went vegetarian they had me buy the frozen fake meat products. I looked at the labels on several of them and discovered that they are actually protein rich bread. Yup. Primary ingredient in most of them is not Soy or Mushroom - it's some form of gluten grain. I took them home and told my wife she was basically eating bread on bread sandwiches. She didn't care. So long as they didn't contain meat.

                Now don't get me wrong, I do all the cooking in the house, so my wife and daughter generally get vegetarian meals made out of actual vegetables, but ultimately I'm hoping my own results will quickly outstrip hers (we are both overweight - daughter is still skinny as a stick) and convince her to come back to the dark side - where we have chicken thighs, and cows, and other delicious dark things to devour.

                As a note of interest, my first two weeks doing primal brought my fasting blood sugar down from 256-125 and it's visibly obvious that I'm losing weight, so she's already a bit impressed.

                  I too got fooled and grabbed this and said, "what the heck?", before putting it back!

                    I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.

                    My in-laws live on and for this stuff. They've got something like three spray bottles of it in their fridge at any given time, all different flavors. Spray bottles. They pull out their slices of fat-free Weight Watchers bread, then whip out the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and spritz-spritz-spritz. I've seen it a hundred times and I'm no less baffled by it now than I was 10 years ago.

                      In the grocery store I saw a bag of "Fat Free" cotton candy at the checkout.

                      I couldn't believe it. People can't be that naive to buy into the "fat free" label thinking it is good for them can they when it is just sugar and fake color and fake flavor?

                      I hate the misleading companies try to do.

                          My girlfriend's daughter likes the hotpocket things. Those don't register as food in my brain.

                            OMG, yes! On another forum I'm on, there's a few threads about weight watchers...one person touted how wonderful it is because they are eating SO healthy now....then went on to ask the original poster if they've discovered the wonders of fake spray butter. This is a quote: "The taste of butter - NO FAT. WAY better than dry toast!!! My DD even loves it - I buy it all the time - it's yummy and FUN! LOL!"

                            *shudder* Chemicals...yum. Since when is spritzing chemicals on everything you eat "healthy?"

                            the "turn the tub around, talking 'bout nutrition" commercial with that woman dancing in the aisle of the grocery store makes me want to hurl a chair at the TV. WTF.

                              While watching the SuperBowl last night, there was a commercial for Pepsi Max and they said it was zero calories. One of my daughter's exclaims "that's not real food, it's fake - food has calories".
