Fake Food

If you want to eat vegetables, eat vegetables. But don’t eat that. That’s prop food.

Taken from Studio 60.

With Easter behind and cj’s recent comment about peeps, I believe that now is the time for my thoughts about this fake food phenomenon be heard!

First of all, really, stay away from the peeps gang! I’ve seen what happens to them when they are exposed to acid, a microwave over, a steam roller and all kinds of other, destructive, processes.

Do you know what happens?

Nothing! They still completely intact! This is not something you want to eat gang, really.

The other thing? Spenda. All y’all just need to stop with this stuff. First of all, it’s not made from sugar. It’s actually ground up Styrofoam packing peanuts mixed with Sweet-n-Low. Second of all, this stuff is 110% un-natural! It’s not grown or anything, it was created in a chemistry lab!

Don’t you think it’s odd that, by volume, splenda under weighs sugar by quite a bit. For example, a box of sugar that weighs 1 pound will only hold 2 oz. of splenda. Am I the only 1 that finds it odd?

Don’t even get me started on the taste either. It’s doesn’t take ANYTHING like sugar. Ok, sure, it’s sweet, with a bug-spray type aftertaste that I think is disgusting! And, what are your caloric savings making this switch? 5 calories per tablespoon or something? Honestly, would it be better to spend an extra minute on the treadmill?

Or, you can continue eating this crap. Just for the love of all things natural, stop telling me about it!

  1. How are peeps any worse than spam?!

    If spam can have it’s own museum then surely peeps deserve one. The article about Peeps on Wikipedia is pretty interesting…I forgot about one of the latest south park episodes which referenced the little marshmallow goodies.

  2. don’t diss my fake food. coke zero is the shizz, man. i don’t think it has splenda…it has other, mo’ better chemistry.

    peeps are just marshmallow with sugar skin…it’s the peep eyes that are made from kryptonite and plutonium waste.
