One winged Flying Pigs, Flat Earth and "Healthy" foods

A correspondent unconcerned for their health (or their family's) has sent me details of the first packs of Frito-Lay's Flat Earth baked Veggie crisps. They lie uneaten because of a rather unpleasant sharp burnt oily smell.

Retailing at US$2.99 these were being heavily promoted on the shelves of Wal-Mart at US$ 2.60 for 6 ounces and selling licketty split . (That's nearly 7 Bucks a pound !)

They exemplify the slick and very clever marketing effort of a major corporation that accompanies modern products.

Noticeable but barely noted on the pack detail is the rice content, readily available, not subject to use as a base for producing bio-fuel and consequently low cost.

The pot of herbs on the pack looks refrshingly realistic.

Lord Patel is lost in admiration for the Directors of Innovation and Marketing, Wellness and Healthy Lifestyle at Pepsi-co that produce this shit... and get people to lay down their hard earned and stuff it down their obese ADD kids.

On closer examination the pig has only one wing... evidently they have not considered the teratology.

Toni Fabuloso suggests Lord Patel adopt the Flat Earth one winged pig as an icon - The necessary wheels have been set in motion... Impossibly good ...
