I don't think I'd like it either, but for different reasons. I love fatty disgusting foods, but I like my chicken burgers to come with buns. So I'd feel like something was missing.

I don't know why they tout it as a sandwich (marketing I guess). It's two pieces of boneless breast, some mayo concoction, cheese and bacon. It just happens to be slapped together - like you did with various ingredients on a lark as a kid. I will try it, but I doubt I'll like it anymore than I like the boneless original recipe, which is quite good.

I'm still amazed at all the weird, bad press it's getting though. Like many other things, it's horrible, but it's unfairly attacked. The interesting thing is, this campaign is run almost exclusively on the backs of bloggers and journalists who hate the thing. KFC's done little other than announce and release it.

It's interesting that people are calling for government regulations in regards to fat/salt content. That's all well and good, whatever, but I don't think they realize that it would crush the restaurant industry.

For example, Pizza Pizza. Not my favourite, but alright in a pinch. One slice of pepperoni pizza from a regular pie contains 550 mg of sodium. How many slices would one eat? 3? 4? Say 4. That's 2200 mg of sodium. Add that crack-like garlic dipping sauce and some wings and you're as salty as the sea.

Oh god... the garlic dipping sauce... my knees just went weak.

It IS crack. Ask anyone who has ever ordered Pizza Pizza with me. I do not share that dip. Ever.

I get two and HANDS OFF. Except for Rowan. He can have a little.

Not related, but poutine has around 3000 mg of sodium. I read a dude's blog where he talked about how awful the Double Down was and complained about the salt and fat and then wrote a blog about Poutini and how much he LOVED it.

I just finished off one of their $4.99 medium pepperoni pizzas for charity...I think helping a charity makes me feel a little better about the amount of sodium I just took in lol

And the dipping sauce is good shit

when you stop eating shit it becomes unbearable when you end up trying some again. It's amazing how your body seems to be rejecting something tat it was trained to easily accept.

Aar - As far as regulations go, and how they would kill the food industry - I think we're talking about shit food that is consumed primarily by people with less income. There are poorer neighborhoods where grocery stores are miles away and the most accessible food in terms of cost and location is generally woefully unhealthy. There's no real excuse for massive quantities of salt and fat. Both are simply addictive, and corporations are happy to unethically make profits off of feeding those unhealthy addictions, and let me and you pick up the tab for what results.

My point is, it's not just the food you describe in 'poorer neighbourhoods'. There's a restaurant here in St.Catharines - the Wellington Court, the chef is well known, he's a friend of my family. The restaurant is known as a destination place and he has a catering business which does quite well. They have a popular caesar salad, which is high in all of what would fall under proposed regulations. And it's not just that one item and it's not just his restaurant. And you can take a high-middle restaurant like the Keg, and half their menu would be gone. Go lower - something like Boston Pizza or Jack Astors. You don't have to go to McDonald's for 'woefully unhealthy'. The places you go to watch sports and eat wings, sub shops, pita places, you name it. Grocery stores, convenience stores. Hot dogs at ball games? Nachos? I mentioned Poutini earlier. That place would have its windows papered just based on their smallest dish. Fish and chip places? Deli's?

Do you regulate salt, fat, cholesterol contents? Do you regulate the type of establishment? Do you regulate the low income earners? Do you set a daily limit and take a blood test at the end of the day? It's impossible to achieve anything using those methods without destroying a whole industry. Things have changed and things will continue to change, but it wouldn't work with regulations.

I think some people make the mistake of claiming this is a problem unique to one segment of the population and involving a certain type of food.

I don't over consume like an Oprah, but I would consume nothing but crap for days on end. Then I got high cholesterol, and knowing my family history I wised up and stopped with the crap. After staying away for a while, I couldn't go near some of that stuff without feeling sick.

If it's just regarding what seems like an obsession with diet - that's not what I'm getting at. There is just a whole lot of cheap shit with pretty much zero nutritional value, and made addictive with the use of fat and salt, and it's just a terrible way to make a profit while expecting the rest of us to cover the health costs. I have to blame the consumers as well, but as a society we have to look at how our standard of living could improve drastically by looking at the quality of our food.

regulations could be put in place to cover mass produced food items and food from chains. We're talking about a certain type of food - and it's produced industrially and floods the marketplace. Where it effects certain segments of the population, it is only because of a lack of better choices.

Things aren't bad just because they're mass produced or produced in a factory or sold by a chain. Like I said, that 'certain type of food' is available everywhere and in more places than a lot of people seem to be willing to admit.

I'd be curious to know how you think it could be implemented. Let's take where I live. In a 3 mile radius, we have a McDonald's, a Burger King, Harveys, a Jack Astors, some pubs, "family" restaurants, a couple high end restaurants featuring local, organic fare. We also have sub shops, fish and chip joints, low end grocery stores and high end grocery stores, convenience stores, etc. How would regulations apply?

Actually food typically is bad when it is made industrially. Why are palm oils and industrially concocted fats used? Because they cheaply keep mass-produced foods from going off for insanely long periods of time, so they can sit on shelves as though they were just like any other widgets, which they basically are. The fact that they end up being things that our bodies, as they have evolved, never recognized as anything they can use, simply doesn't matter. And it's in such food products that levels of salt and sugar tend to be upped for the purpose of tricking our bodies into wanting them.

So regulate at the source. Like they do with organic food. Hardly impossible. If a mom and pop joint uses a bit too much salt, I could care less. I'm not talking about a complete crackdown. I have no problem with any shit being ingested in moderation. But look around - we are living in a food environment where nutritional value is not a primary concern. All the pre-packaged foods, and the foods prepared by "food-service" companies and then served at far too many restaurants need to be regulated to control that environment, and ensure that on the whole, the primary interest is nutrition over profit.
