Not really food but I still think it makes the list. I discussed this in a previous post, but I have to start thinking the world is coming to an end when sipping on a coffee is deemed too big of a hassel. I'm not big on putting anything into your lungs. Lungs are sensitive and generally hard to replace. I've also watched people sit in their car for 20 minutes at a drive through waiting for a coffee so I'd like to think airborne bevys are not going to take off.
Really? You don't have time to peel and chop a potato? I think it's the commercial for this one that aggravates me the most as it tries to make it sound like peeling and chopping a potato is the worst thing under the sun. I can understand if you are elderly or have dexterity issues with your hands, but a potato can be purchased for mear pennies compared to the couple of dollars you will spend on this bag. Not to mention the tasty sodium phosphate they've added to keep the potatoes from changing color. Yum! Just buy a potato and count that dreaded peeling and chopping towards your workout.
My beef with this one is that to simplify kraft dinner down further is like trying to make boiling noodles easier.....oh...wait a minute... It's a waste of packaging for one of the world's most simplified dishes and it's over priced again. I suppose that's the price of laziness though. Also, I doubt the 7 minutes saved by microwaving is really worth it.
I would like to emphasize the burger does not look that nice when it comes out of the can. Not a Canadian product yet, but still gross all the same. I think the original marketing plan was that it would be good for camping because you just heat the bottom and it's ready to go. The crazy thing is that you can use the same grill you cooked your canned burger on to cook an actual burger patty! Chances are you can pronounce the words on the side of the burger package as opposed to this can. On the upside in a zombie apocalypse...these things may come in handy.
Don't get me wrong, they are certainly healthier choices to others on this list, but the increase in cost for simply slicing your fruit and vegetables is borderline robbery. Presliced fruits and veggies often have sugar, salt or chlorine solutions added to them as well to stop them from changing color on you. They also won't last as long in the fridge if you need to store them.
I didn't rank these product in order of shame but if I did, this would be number one. A whole chicken you can cook in 10 to 15 minutes! My biggest question when I saw this is what do you coat a partially cooked chicken in to prevent it from growing bacteria at room tempurature? You know that feeling you get when you are watching something horrible but you can't turn away because it's just that terrible? I warn you now that if you click on the link below you may be traumatized (unless you're really into watching a can give birth to a slimy chicken). You have been warned. I don't even think I need to argue other reasons this is gross and wrong. Just click the link....if you dare.
