For many baby boomers, the thought of Twinkie-free shelves and cupboards is a serious downer. These golden goodies have become synonymous with a bygone era. After the Cuban missile crisis, a common joke circulated that only cockroaches and Twinkies would survive a nuclear meltdown. Talk about resilience!
All jokes aside, it makes us wonder what goes into the making of these otherwise soft and gushy treats. It must be some seriously sketchy stuff. Twinkies are highly processed and unhealthy snacks. If that wasn’t bad enough, people have gone the extra mile by deep-frying them. That’s just wrong on so many levels.
First things first, did you know that carrots, the innocent orange roots we all love, are already high in sugar? Carrots are so sweet you might as well be munching on candy. Which is why glazing carrots are almost like preemptively knocking your own teeth out.
If you're brave enough to venture into the land of tooth-aching sweetness, go ahead and indulge. Just be prepared for the consequences. Perhaps keep a dentist on speed dial or invest in some extra-strength toothpaste. It's a sugary disaster waiting to happen. As for us, we like carrots in their natural, crunchy glory. Why drench them in sugar?
White People Tacos
It's time we have a serious chat about the state of tacos. The beloved dish has been completely hijacked and overshadowed by its obnoxious "white" cousin. You know which imposter we're talking about—the one with salad toppings, yellow cheese, flavorless ground beef, and a generous dollop of sour cream. It's time to put an end to this culinary charade.
So, what makes a taco truly authentic? A soft corn tortilla cradling strips of simmered, spicy beef complemented by the freshness of cilantro and the zing of onions. The true symphony of taste transports you to the heart of Mexico. No more unoriginal crap masquerading as tacos. We need to reclaim the real deal.
We’re not big fans of chain restaurants, and Applebee's secures a top spot on the list. Sure, they might have some pretty good dishes. But if you've ever seen the calorie information, your jaw would drop. There’s no reason in the entire bible of reasons why salad should have over a thousand calories.
There’s also no reason why a salad should be drenched in fried meat and thick dressing. The baby boomers strike again with their love for mayonnaise and margarine. We love you, but we're begging you to reconsider your dressing choices. Let the vibrant flavors of fresh produce shine through.
Boiled Brussels Sprouts
Boiled Brussels sprouts? Terrible idea. No wonder they've earned such a bad reputation! Baby Boomers single-handedly managed to turn entire generations off Brussels sprouts. All you had to do was roast the vegetable! When these little beauties hit the oven, they transform into irresistible bites of heaven.
Thanks to the oven, these mini cabbages have been making a comeback lately. And look at what the world has been missing. Not only are Brussels sprouts delicious, they contain a ton of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and anti-cancer properties! Stop boiling things; we implore you. Roasting is everything. Give it a try, and prepare to have your taste buds blown away.
