No thank you. If I am going to eat junk food for breakfast let it be ice cream!!!
When I was 3 mom had dad feed us breakfast. He fed us ice cream. Mom yelled down from the upstairs, “The kids are so quiet. What did you feed them?”. In a guilty voice my dad said, “Ice cream.”. I ran out of the kitchen with my bowl, crouched behind a chair in the living room and ate it as fast as I could thinking mom was going to come downstairs to take it from us. She did not come down that I remember. I got my first ice cream headache which is probably why I remember this.
Yay! More ultra-processed food for the American diet. So relieved that they contain sugar (sugar), bleached flour, canola oil, raisin paste (sugar), polydextrose (sugar), banana puree (sugar), glycerine, invert sugar (sugar), molasses (sugar), and lecithin. And a “bioengineered food ingredient” to boot. Yum!
@MrNews@Pufferfishy Does sugar cause autism now? I thought it was still vaccines. As someone said above the bioengineered ingredient is probably one of the grains modified for pest resistance or something like that. Wouldn’t want the non-GMO activists to go bananas.
@sammydog01 I’m not an activist - but count me among the “non-GMO” folks.
Not because I’m worried that they’re going to make me grow a 3rd arm (arguably a cool thought), but because they taste like shit. Or more accurately - they taste like nothing.
One of the down-sides of being over 50 is remembering when food had flavor. Eating “generally available” tomatoes and corn now is like chewing on flavorless crap. And good luck finding a GMO carrot that doesn’t taste like the dirt it was grown in. Buying corn on the roadsides in rural Ohio used to be an absolute highlight of summer - now that it’s all Monsanto Frankencorn I don’t even bother. I can butter & salt wet cardboard and get the same taste & texture.
I for one am grateful I have space for a, and know to, garden, and that heirloom seeds exist.
@Pufferfishy@sammydog01 that’s not GMO, though; that’s using all methods I producing plants that ship better and have higher yields. It wasn’t genetic modification that produced bland tomatoes and Red Delicious apples. Mostly genetic modification is used for pest resistance. Tastelessness came from traditional seed selection for traits other than taste.
I was just lamenting how good pork chops tasted when I was young. When the industry decided to breed leaner hogs and push them as the “other white meat” good pork chops disappeared.
@craigthom I’m sure they are much less sweet, but they are higher in banananess, which is a down-check for me personally. There is History. And even if they were cranberry-orange, the quantity involved would cause me to be leaving piles of them out for whoever wanted them. It is rare for something to be welcome for long enough to go through that many.
Chiming in to say these are pretty good, not cloyingly sweet, a good banana flavor, and a decent textured bite from the various grains present in it. There were way too many in this package though and I have handed out a couple of boxes already.
