This is interesting... The few times I've tried these kinds of foods, they taste terrible, like chemicals, and not at all like real food. I think most people are used to processed foods, though. It's a real shame especially for kids, and this is marketed towards kids. Their sense of taste goes askew, and this kind of crap tastes O.K. before they can learn to like foods that nourish their bodies and keep them healthy. What a mess.
p.s. I found this on the web.
Jimmy Dean Pancakes and Sausage on a Stick
Cost: $5.98/14 servings
Prep: 60 seconds in microwave
Fat: 12 grams (4 grams saturated/ 0 grams trans fat)
Marketing: "A pancake breakfast in a minute!"
Evans' reality check: "The first three ingredients (enriched bleached flour, water and sugar) are terrible. It only has 5 grams of protein, and that is a terrible way to get protein."
Alternative: Make a whole grain pancake (or Kashi frozen waffle) and wrap it around a veggie or low-fat turkey sausage.
