    Mountain Dew Throwback is actually a really good drink, it is surprising what real sugar will do to the taste of something.

    if you don't like HFCS you must be some kind of retard:

    What they say about it is that it is often processed with Mercury, and has been tested to contain trace amounts of it.

    They also say that it increases the risk for heart disease, has an influence on the appetite hormones, and blunts sensations of fullness which could lead to overeating.

    Moderation? The low glucose/high fructose thing affects appetite to discourage moderation. WTF.

    Look, it must be okay, because it's made from corn. Just like heroin is okay in moderation, because it's made from poppies.

    I kind of hate what this guy is trying to say, because basically it boils down to "if it looks or seems gross, it's bad". Probably what's more important is, is it unhealthy? What it looks like before you cook it doesn't really matter in the slightest.

    That being said, I don't know anything about this guy other than this video, so if his real focus is health issues, more power to him.

    And they said it was a good idea, before they cleared it too.

    It is, you can watch his TED talk, or I think he had a show-documentary about trying to get West Virginia kids to eat healthier (that clip is probably from the show). I agree with you that grossness shouldn't be the focus, but I imagine kids these days yarglebargle are even less concerned with health than they are with grossness. Could be wrong, since the grossness approach seems not to work.

    Well the thing about kids is, they're kids. It's not the kid's responsibility to eat healthy and think about their future well-being. That's what parents are for. I mean, kids eating fucking crayons because they look tasty, I think they can be forgiven for not understanding the intricacies of LCL vs HCL or whatever.

    It's the responsibility of parents and teachers to teach their kids about healthy eating and make them eat healthy shit, until they get to the age where they can start understanding the issues more fully. Goddamn fatty fat fat parents!

    - "We see the emerging opportunity to 'snackify' beverages and 'drinkify' snacks as the next frontier in food and beverage convenience," Ms. Nooyi said.

    - Mehmood Khan, a former Mayo Clinic endocrinologist who heads PepsiCo's nutrition group, said in an interview that it's outdated to think that snacks are dry and beverages are wet.

    And, this may be my favorite:

    - Researchers who developed Tropolis said the texture has been designed so it would flow out of the pouch openings

    I had to reread these a few times.

    I'm still having a hard time trying to wrap my head around what they're saying

    I didn't realize that an endocrinology degree would give me insights into the future of snacking and drinking

    or should I say, into the future of snackifying and drinkifying

    I am applying for grad school, should I change my focus to "drinkification"?

    There's nothing wrong with GoGurt except the name is stupid. It's just putting normal yogurt into a new packaging. I get them for the kid all the time, but primarily to freeze them and let him eat it like a push pop. He thinks he's getting icecream, I get him to eat something better through the power of lying. It's a win-win.

    Then I want a highly personalized birthday comic, something a forumer drew for me.

    PepsiCo's Tropicana unit is rolling out apple, grape and cherry Tropolis pouches in test markets in the Midwest next month, at $2.49 to $3.49 for a four-pack.
    it's more expensive than just buying some apples

    it's not as convenient as just eating an apple

    it's processed

    why

    why would anyone buy this
    This is more convenient than an apple.
    You don't have to wash it.
    You can throw it into a backpack and throw the backpack off a cliff and it will be fine, the apple may get dirty and bruised.
    You drink it like a smoothie. An apple you have to chew (oh no!, but still a point), and it's possible to cut yourself with the skin, or getting the skin stuck up your gums.
