Chocolate, Blue 'Funky Fries' pulled from shelves
fries with the flavors of chocolate, cinnamon and blue-colored variety have been pulled by Heinz due to poor sales and overall revulsion by consumers around the nation (especially here at MeFi
). Can you think of other such horrific failed foods that were disgusting from the start?

Cancer and Carbohydrates (per FT)
may be closely linked according to recent international study - and not just any carbohydrates but those that are our favorites - deep fried potatoes, rice, and bread all may contain high levels of cancer causing acrylamides. What's your average carb eater to do?

McDonald's Fries NOT Vegetarian After All
While I realize that a large percentage of veggies avoid McDonald's on principle, an equally large percentage of them go there for the fries.
A McDonald's spokesman said the restaurant chain had never claimed to offer vegetarian food and that it freely provides ingredient information to anyone who requests it.
I can assure you that no where on that ingredient sheet does it say there's animal products in the fries. They went to a good deal of trouble to switch to vegetable oil
so they could say they were healthier.
If they've always contained the beef fat and they are not trying to hide that, then why the hell isn't it on the ingredient list?

Why McDonald's fries taste good -
A very interesting article about Americans, food, and "flavoring." The statistic that made me gasp in shock was this: "About 90 percent of the money that Americans now spend on food goes to buy processed food." Is it any wonder the nation is so fat? Good grief.
