Play With Your FoodWednesday, December 7, 2011
Don’t get me wrong – I think these marketing folks are geniuses who know all too well the composition of their target audience. Americans are so sugar-addicted and are therefore resistant to real, whole, healthy foods. Additionally, modern culture embraces the lifelong adolescent while praising the ageless infant in an adult body. So to get Americans to eat, the food has to be a visual toy in order to engage the perpetually adolescent mind. Food must be a game and a play thing. If the masses are amused by their food, they might just eat it. Therefore, we take fruits and veggies and things and stick them in … the chocolate waterfall.
