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 pita chips.
But Fuming Fuji, you ask, aren’t pita chips healthy?
The Fuming Fuji says no!
The claim: The Fuming Fuji was blinded by “natural” and “wholesome” and “whole-grain”. Also, by a lovely Granny Smith strolling past.
The catch: Lies, all lies. Pita chips are not healthy because they are greasy, salty, and fried. It does not matter that pita is a nice word which is very fun to spell.
The comeback: That’s it? That’s your best? Come on, Fuji – pita chips have to be healthier than nachos.
The conclusion: People, for the last time: A chip is a chip is a chip, except Pentium, which is admittedly low-fat. The Fuming Fuji does not care to comment. EVEN if a chip is not made with trans fat and EVEN if a chip is made from nice grains and EVEN if a chip is baked instead of fried, the chip is still a chip! It is still a processed food made with the use of a stamp.
The catchphrase: For pita’s sake!
