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 donuts.
But, Fuming Fuji, you ask, isn’t a donut now and then an OK treat – it’s better than a candy bar, right?
The Fuming Fuji says no!
The claim: Donuts are a delicious, homespun pastry made from mostly flour and good feelings, so they’re not as bad as candy.
The catch: Donuts are an empty, machine-made free-radical fest made from sugar and fat, so they are actually the worst food on the planet.
The comeback: But Fuming Fuji, they’re bread! How can they be so bad?
The conclusion: Donuts are a mixture of equal parts sugar (bleached) and fat (usually lard). Then, they are fried. In fat.
The catchphrase: If you eat donuts you are nuts.
