Mac n' Cheetos, of course. Now on the menu at Burger King.

The foodies are appalled, of course. The solution isn't to call for boycotts, call for food regulations, or demand that the menu item be eliminated. It's to choose not to eat such a thing if you go to Burger King at all.

The solution to all eating problems is in the choices we make. Educate people to make good choices, especially in the size of portions; how much we eat.

Fast food outfits are just selling what will sell. If people consistently choose healthy they will sell healthy. Trying to deprive people of choices isn't the answer.:(

I predict that most people who think it sounds horrible will at least try it, even if they never admit it to anyone.

I'm not a mac-and-cheese person and have never understood why this is a beloved comfort food, but crunchy and "comforting" sounds pretty good to me.

You might be surprised to learn they still make and sell those. At least here in Nebraska they do.


Even as a child I thought the concept was wrong, and I’m not that young, meaning I grew up in the smoking heyday.

Those never went away, look online. I thought they were fun as a kid, but I never smoked, I did three puffs once and decided I hated them. Cigars and pot was a different story. Funny thing though, I always have loved the smell of cigarette smoke. I miss it.

I would probably give it a try just once, for the experience.

BK has gone bonkers ever since the Canucks bought it.

Selling hot dogs, really?

Maybe it works.

YEEESS!!

You know good food.

If that sounds good, then you have to try Chili Corn Dog Casserole. Start with a layer of cornbread batter, top with hot dogs split lengthwise, top with shredded cheese, top with chili, more shredded cheese and finally another layer of cornbread batter.

You could jazz that up with minced onions and jalapenos in the batter, and pimento cheese spread as a garnish on the top at service, but I like the way you think!

40% of American women and 35% of American men are obese.

World Obesity Federation | World map of obesity

What a shock.


A few future foods...chocolate covered fat, cheese that actually has different cheese injected inside and then deep fried and chocolate covered, cheese that is deep fried in pure lard and served smothered in mayo and ketchup.

I almost gagged typing that.

Oh, yum. (Where are the onions?!)

Let cool, and then ice with guacamole.

I wonder how many vegans like the taste of their food enough to look forward to eating. Or maybe to them eating is a lot like going to the gas station, if they dont come away with food on them that scores as a win..

So many questions.......

:blah:




Anyone seen a thread topic around here cause by the looks of it we lost ours.
