…You’re held to higher nutrition standards.
Take just a moment to check out this Nutrition Facts label:
When I was in Chicago last weekend, my mother drew my attention to my dad’s “latest steal from the dollar store”. Without missing a beat, I snatched the cans from the shelf and insisted they be tossed. But I compromised and the cans were donated to the food pantry.
When questioned about his “selection” my dad simply said that the corned beef hash looked good and was a great deal. I rolled my eyes in disapproval and in return I got sad puppy dog look. My mom is pretty well trained to consult labels but my dad…not so much. He’s works in progress, obviously.
I thought this would be a funny topic to blog about, and of course, an accompanying picture helps do the label justice (if that’s even the right word). It’s rare you see a label quite so…gross, so I thought it would be fun to share with nutrition gurus 🙂
