Ugh! Don't eat it!

Ugh! Don't eat it!

Quick note for overseas readers, just in case - a George Foreman is essentially a grill. 

This actually dates back to Easter in Rockville, MD - all the easter bunnies were on super sale, especially the Palmer white chocolate flavored bunny. Wait. White Chocolate Flavored? Uh Oh. A quick look at the ingredients reveals,

"Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Palm Kernel Oil and/or Palm Oil), Whey, Lactose, Skim Milk, Soy Lecithin, Vanillin, Artificial Colors (Blue #1, Blue #2, Red #40, Yellow #5, Yellow #6 & Red #3). May contain Peanuts/Nuts.”

Reading this scathing review about the regular chocolate version reveals that cocoa is fourth down the list of ingredients - even in the chocolate version, it's in there for color rather than flavor. I'm making a face just thinking about it. 

Actually, that's not the grossest thing we melted - check out Quax. Full title: Quax Hollow Milk Flavored. Here's the ingredients,

"Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Palm Kernel and/or Palm Oil), Whey, Lactose, Skim Milk, Soy Lecithin, Colors (Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 1, Blue 2, Red 40 & Red 3), Vanillin."

They're really shiny out of the box - they look more like a plastic rubber ducky than something edible, and when they melt down they turn white and then blacken and it's really just terrible. 

I should qualify all this by saying, John wanted to test shooting high-speed footage with his new hi-def camera. Man, that was a weird day. 


Chocolate Flavored vs. Chocolate

The government had a set regulation on what constitutes real chocolate. The United States and Europe have differing standards on how much, but it comes down to containing a minimal amount of cocoa butter versus other fats. Replacing cocoa butter with things like milk fats or palm oil to the point of going below this minimum amount of cocoa butter means the "chocolate" cannot legally be called chocolate anymore, but is just chocolate-flavored. You can have milk fats and/or palm oil in real chocolate, but for it to be "real" chocolate, there must but a certain amount of cocoa butter in there too.

We have George Foreman's

We have George Foreman's 'overseas' :) In fact, I think they're pretty big everywhere where people prefer convenience over haute cuisine. Viz, I don't think you'll see them in France.

I wonder if the Suicidal Bunnies have thought of the George Foreman this way.

We once tossed an Oreo cookie into a fire. The cream burned for hours
