But I did take some pictures with my phone, and I am back in Boulder now, so maybe I can catch up !
Mom likes to shop at Wal-mart. While strolling the crap-as-food aisles with her two items caught my eye. The first one was a maple bacon frosting. I know bacon is the darling of animal-eating foodies everywhere right now, but damn....I had to look ! And it turns out that it is quite possibly vegan....depending on what they mean by "natural flavors". And the fact that it says "may contain milk ingredients" gives me pause. And surely, the palm oil they are using is not from sustainable palmfruit farms, but from the cheapest source possible. Yikes. And really....kind of hilarious ( in a sad way ) that the "freshness " of the hydrogenated fats, industrial colorings, starches and sugars are preserved by potassium sorbate, sulfur dioxide and sodium benzoate.
I guess I should end this post on a positive note, but frankly...I'm not feeling it. Knowing this crap is being thought up, manufactured using precious energy and water resources and taking up premium supermarket shelf space does not bode well for our country.
