We Make Food That Tastes Like Other Food!

NOT-SO-SMART FUEL

Remember when Mark blogged about the wilting of his Salad Love Affair thanks to the miraculous arrival of Flat Earth “healthy” chips? I happened upon this humorous review of one of the Flat Earth products: specifically, their peach and mango chips. The review is short and hilarious, so be sure you check out the clickativity.

My favorite quote:

“If you want the flavor of peaches or mangos, there are some good options out there for getting your fill. For example, you could buy some peaches and mangos, and eat them.”

What’s with food that’s engineered just to taste like…other food?

For newbie readers, don’t miss some of our most popular recent posts exposing things like mold sold to us as vegetarian protein (gulp!), Mark’s harrowing escape from Vegan Island, great sources of good carbs for even the most dedicated carb haters, and the question we all want answered: why are potato chips more expensive than filet mignon???

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. Haha, I love the quote from the packaging: “1/2 Serving of Real Fruit in Every Ounce,” there’s so much that’s wrong about that! Even if the chip was 100% fruit, what kind of a serving of fruit is only 2 ounces? But wait, the main ingredients are rice and potatoes. And the “fruit” is just powdered seasoning.. If we do a little math (0x2=0), we can safely conclude that Flat Earth considers the size of a single serving of fruit to be 0 ounces.
