Nasty Food Contest-Results!
Alright, it took quite a while to get all our results in! After many weeks of speculating, the results are finally here...
If you have missed our earlier blog, the contest was to try and find the worst food possible and share the joy and amazement of your find. This was an international effort, with nasty concoctions, dubious ingredients, and awful marketing strategies.
There were many submissions, so thank you everyone for your valiant effort.
What is it you say? Why these are popsicles, mixed and ready to go, you just freeze them yourself. And yes, they are in cute seahorse or koala shapes, what is not to like about that? And don't worry, you can always keep this one until you truly think the time is right. It is apparently quite good to eat until 2016...
I do have a small bias against our next contestant who comes to us from the farmer's fair in the depths of La Belle France.
As far as healthy, fresh, and organic food, he is a winner. This is pure, fresh, food. Locally raised, with only ONE ingredient. So let me be clear, this is not the worst food possible. However, we must all agree that although this big box of tongues looks delish, it is not for everyone pallet (pun intended).
Why did I include this one? To show the different point of views in different countries. Considered fast food and junk food in Swizterland, it would have been chosen as a healthy lunch choice here in our old US of A.
"Birthday Surprise" from Belfort, France
"Easter Cuties" from Nashville, Tennessee
Now a special category for most-un-ecofriendly packaging, this one comes to us from Prescott, Arizona.
I think we should all learn a valuable lesson here and try and ruin our attempt at healthy food by buying products in hard plastic shells that will biodegrate in 4,000 years or so.
There are not enough blue foods in this world I tell you, so let's invent some shall we? Blue raspberry juice! And what is the key to blue raspberry goodness? Apparently vegetable oil, yes it is listed as one of the ingredients; who woulda thunk?
I dared not taste it, but secret ingredients include tamarind juice and cayenne pepper.
Probably something to grab if you are in need of a last minute bowel cleanse at the checkout aisle.
And there you have them ladies and gentlemen, please let's give a big round of applause to all our contestants, you are all winners my friends!!
