My problem is with the fadishness of it. Pulled Pork has existed for a VERY long time. Then, all of a sudden, it became THE IN THING, mostly pork, but other meats as well.

Now, quite a number of months later, there is hardly a mention of it anywhere. And that is just fine.

Very much the way ICE BEER was many years ago. Same sort of silly fadishness to it. Where is it now?

Overall, aside from the gratuitous cutsiness in most of it (advertising in general), I hate the way they insist on super-oversaturating the market with proprietary noise.


Advertisers as well as the anti-gluten agenda pushers, are treating gluten as if it were some sort of highly unhealthy substance for everyone, almost on the same level as trans fat or refined sugar.

Truly, they're overdoing it.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Making gluten-free foods the latest fad though gets on my nerves.  Angry
My now 17 y/o Granddaughter was diagnosed with celiac disease at the age of 4. She was not growing, her hair was thin, and she suffered from severe abdominal pain. Of course like many kids that age her favorite foods were mac-n-cheese and pizza. Celiac is no joke and I feel very sorry for your Mother's suffering. My GD is extremely careful and is doing fine. I don't understand how people fall for these fads when actual medical studies are so easily found on the internet. Last year I bought a bag of my usual tortilla chips and it was hard to miss the new 'gluten free' banner. I compared ingredients of my nearly empty bag with the new 'gluten free' one. Corn, Corn oil, Salt.

From Google: "...corn is a type of grain, but it's from a different branch of the grain family than the gluten grains wheat, barley, and rye. Corn contains a substance known as "corn gluten," which sounds scary, but isn't the same gluten that bothers people with celiac or gluten sensitivity."

Must be some kind of sales gimmick.

Of course the large 'gluten free' banner on the new chip bag was a sales gimmick cashing in on the 'gluten free' fad. The 3 ingredients were exactly the same as they have always been.

ConfusedIce Beer is one of the best things that happened to beer and is still going very strong.
I got into it when it first came out and some are better than others (Bud Ice is my preferred US brand, Molson's ICE, when I'm up at The Den). Ice beers leave little aftertaste and do not overtake any food you could be eating.

Thanks sgtrock21.  My mother was actually hospitalized because of it and was diagnosed when they did tests, intrusive surgical type test.  One of my uncles (her brother) actually died from it, we believe.  Back then it was unknown, and the severe symptoms left him in a nursing home where he passed away.  It will literally eat you up alive.

You're right.  They are trying to tie it in with health food and organic food.
