I just looked at my salt – the red stuff that has garlic and paprika and turmeric in it (“seasoned salt”) – and it has fucking sugar in it. It is almost as if there is some kind of subsidy …
Nothing to add to the main topic, but you’d be running in horror if you saw the jar of “blue cheese dressing” we found in our fridge a couple years back.
It was calorie free.
It was dairy free.
I don’t recall what the ingredients were, except that it involved some kind of artificial nondairy blue cheese flavoring, some kind of gum additive, and (I think) cellulose. We opened the jar, and decided it smelled like paint. Nobody could remember where it came from… until I posted a photo on Facebook, and a student we’d hosted a year or two earlier 'fessed up; he saw it in a store while staying with us, and wanted to try it. Evidently it was pretty horrifying, as this fellow would eat anything and be only tried it once. It was, in theory, “edible” but none of us dared.
Back to the main topic…
OK, now I’m going to be having nightmares about that. Thanks a lot, Mama Zappa.
