Fake food

This is why everyone needs to learn how to cook.

It’s strange, things like the Twinkie aren’t as healthy as the English bakery recipes they’re based on (we have a lot of vanilla sponge, historically famous dairy cream and hundreds of regional variations). It’s like a very bland Victoria sponge missing the jam and we have sponge fingers.

Oreos are inferior to custard creams. They’re cheap in the supermarket and you can make them.

Nutella isn’t like the genuine Gianduja of old, it’s palm oil, sugar and milk powder.

If you look at the ingredients of famous fudge, it’s now loaded with corn syrup instead of sugar.

Not even golden syrup.

How can you screw up butter+sugar?

It isn’t a mistake.

They want you hooked on inferior tasting food.

That lecture is here in full:

It’s like how all consumer culture now superficially obsesses over quick-fix show-off “self improvement”, as a distraction from real improvement or moral standards (to be right, there must be a wrong).

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
