Working as I do in the region that is home to the beef capital of Australia, and exhibiting a growing affinity for chocolate, chips and other various Saturday afternoon munchies such as dips, and with a cheddar cheese habit that defies imagination, and in the midst of current debate about advertising fast food to children, I found this article intriguing.
Seems like those clever processed food people have more than subliminal advertising up their sleeve. Well, let's be frank, they also have patently blatant advertising, but they are 'engineering' more food to make us want to eat...more.
Am I getting my vegetable-replicated Rolf Harris endorsed five pieces of fruit and vegetable each day? Well, I get more than a lot of people. I have a fetish for oranges that of course erupts into full bloom at this time of year, and simultaneously does my teeth no end of damage.
I adore raw carrots and cauliflower, I just don't get them out of the fridge for a munch as often as I do, er, chocolate, for example.
Why is that?
