Food, Inc.

Posted by: |

By now, most of you with an interest in this topic will have read Fast Food Nation or seen its odd film adaptation, or enjoyed the gastronomic minefield of Supersize Me. Food, Inc. is less about the horrible contents of processed food and more about the unseen machinations in boardrooms and government buildings, as well as their unseen costs. Don’t worry, we are still privy to the horrors that the sources of our meat go through, but here it is more to illustrate the why. Efficiency fattens stockholder’s portfolios, and certainly leads to fattening our lower and middle classes as well. Behind the veil of the pastoral fantasy (that corporations sell us with their monopolistic food processing) lurks people with no intent to compromise in favor of ethics, health, the environment, animals, or even product heterogeneity. The bottom line is profits, and it’s killing all of us; not just Americans, but all of us.

Last year, Jessica celebrated her 22nd birthday.  Her bestfriend baked her a cake.  At first all us were relectant to eat such a cute cake.  Why would we want to ruin this masterpiece? But after gutting this poor Domo, we knew we had to “FINISH HIM.” NOM!!!!!!!!

Donkey Kong Soda Display

The style of using 8-Bit video game characters for a soda display at grocery stores seem to be happening more and more.  In the photo above, you can see the employees saw the Mario soda display and decided to make Donkey Kong. Complete with a barrel that’ll “crush” you, of course. (Yes, I went there. Deal with it.) I hope this trend doesn’t stop because I would love to be greeted by old NES characters every time I walk into my local grocery store.

Greatest Mug Invention I’ve seen so far

Here is a mug that made me smile big.  Mainly because I’m such a cookie monster. I love all kinds of cookies.  Add some milk (lactaid please) and thats what I call an awesome snack.  Now, with this new mug invention, I would be able to carry them both with one hand! This really blew my mind. But not only did the people at Mocha think about the cookie monster of the world, they also thought about people like me. The lefties.

“Left handed dunkers haven’t been forgotten either as it’s available in both right and left handed versions. The slot of the Dunk cup should always face away from you when drinking so that the biscuits in the slot slide towards the back of the mug rather than onto your lap.”

Great invention Mocha. I just might be buying one of these real soon.

E3 Pre-thoughts: Gamer Grub

Posted by: |

I don’t like admitting this much, but in spite of my irrational love for Cheetos, I (kind of) like to eat healthy. Here’s a picture, for example, eating a delicious, flavorful curry-type of dish from Afghanistan.

And so naturally, a huge WTF cloud flew over my head when I was invited to taste Gamer Grub, “the first performance snack scientifically formulated to enhance cognitive functions for gamers.”

I’ll be taking a few nibbles later today and posting further details on this what-looks-to-be flavored cardboard. My current thoughts on this snack should be apparent in this post – let’s see if they uphold. Stay tuned!

Posted by: |

Wendy’s fast food burger joint just got a new campaign that looks very familiar to an older campaign. This new campaign is advertising 2 new Coffee Frosty’s, Frosty-cino and Coffee Toffee Twisted Frosty. Who do they get to help sell it to you while you’re watching that old piece of tech called a TV? The Frosty Posse. A boy band that wears all white and sings about the product that absolutely love.
