A Veggie Serve In Every Stick!


"A Veggie Serve in every stick", the box loudly proclaims!! Surely that negates the 475mg of sodium per serve?!?!

What the hell ever happened to boiling a bit of pumpkin with some stock and pureeing it?

Ed to add: I found this in a box in the cupboard at work... I DID NOT PURCHASE IT!!

Ahhh, it brings back the days of oversalted veg doesn't it! But what one earth is this 'stick' thing? A bar of goop or?

Tom, indeed that was MY first thought!

And Duncan, clearly you are immune to the CAPITALIZATION and use of "PARENTHESIS"

The STICK are CONVENIENT!!! and contain a "VEGGIE SERVE"... pretty much powdered soup in a CONVENIENT STICK rather than one of those nasty, inconvenient sachets we're used to.

Hello PG, Belated thanks for Foodbuzz friendship! Have been meaning to drop by!

This looks more like 'chemical cup'!

Shit, it's got the same mentality as those who go to McDonalds, up size everything, then order a diet coke, "'cause I'm on a diet"

Or that joker in my Cardiac class who saw himself as Vegetarian because he only eats McDonalds vegie burgers, hot chips & potato cakes.

(quiet note - the look on PG's face was proceless when he asked his wife "why don't you cook me these things called lijumes" (legumes) when we were discussing dietry habits).

What have we become!?!?! And to think I thought it was bad enough when I saw the pumpkin peeled, chopped and covered in gladwrap in the grocery section... can we do nothing for ourselves anymore? Is the day or is the day not, still 24 hours long??? And what are we doing with those 24 hours? Don't get me started, this is crazy!! V x

It's in a stick? What the hell is going on in Australia?

But then, hell, I should talk, I live in Canada, home of the prepared "food" in a packet.

Somehow I thought Australia was better than us. All these illusions. Dashed...

Deeply disturbing...

I just bought myself a copy of Notebook...darls, when are you going to make that television show??!!!

Wonderful ambassador, you are.

purple goddess said...

Why, thanks, darl!

Once Notebook update their web site, I'll do a post and link to it!

TV show??!!!

Let's get SOLE Mama's forum up and vibrant before we think of anything else....altho the PR company for the Notebook rang the other day and asked my availability for some radio and newspaper interviews.. so we'll see where this takes us!

Lucy said...

Am heading over there (SOLE Mama) right now.

Yep. Let's get you on the radio getting the message out there first. Small steps are much, much better.

To begin with at least!
