WTF!? Stupid foods you love to hate

I mentioned this in my group earlier today and thought that the PT community would enjoy contributing something to this as well.....

Ok- so what food "invention" just makes you sick?

My favorite food to hate are those frozen PB&J sandwiches by Smuckers. I mean come on! You're really *that* strapped for time that you need to choose the frozen, highly processed, crust-less PB&J sandwich from a box!?

Fruit roll-ups. Frankenfood at its worst. If I wanted to eat plastic, I'd gnaw on a ziploc bag.

I wanted to hate the pre-sliced apples with a bit of fake lemon to keep them from yellowing, but my niece loves them. So if it enables more kids to eat fruit, then how can I hate?

I hate trans fats. It's this man-made, completely synthetic fat that some jerk invented just so that people wouldn't have to stir their peanut butter up. Trans fats keep things solid and preserved on the shelf forever, imagine what they do when they hang out all solid in your arteries....

Breakfast cereals, like Fruit Loops, that look like they came out of a bubble-gum machine.

to poster 6:34-- if you think friut loops look scary when they come out of the box.....

I was able to tour the Malt-o-Meal cereal factory and got to see how they make their fruit loop knock offs-- the dye that is used to get them that color is flourensent! Even on the concrete floor (it was leaking out of the tubes going to the machines)- It was so gross!!!!! Ever since I saw that I will never be able to eat colored cereal again!!!

bottled water,

what the hell is wrong with most water from the faucet? Get a plastic container or thermos and save yourself some money.
