Ecch. My wife likes Miracle Whip. I don't trust any food that's so incredibly, artificially white.

Back when I was working for BK, they were just introducing preformed Pilsbury brand biscuits and pancakes. They came frozen- baked the bisquits and nuked the pancakes. All of the regulars preferred my made from scratch biscuits to that 'store bought crap'.

And they still make frozen pancakes. Got some at the Dollar Tree for the kids a while back.

Yeah lots of beer, tobacco and diapers, all kinds of scary items around the perimeter.
You know homemade mayo ain't hard to make.
stoopiest food is lunchables, with equal amounts of packaging and "food".

I actually used to like Tuna Helper when I was a kid.

Last year, I was deathly sick, had my two young kids, and my wife was out of town. I wanted to feed them something more than the sandwiches which were all I could muster the energy to make for the last day or two. So I bought some Tuna Helper, figuring it that it had at least the advantage of being quick and easy to make.

Oh man, the salt... it was like just eating a block of salt. Amazingly disgusting.

Beer and beef jerky were mentioned I believe.

I forgot.... Apples, pre-cut and in a sealed bag, which of course had to be refrigerated. The label said "Ready to Eat!"

You're right. I must need one to improve my reading comprehension.

I'd have to day the most stupid food ever had to be the McDonald's McDLT.

[video=youtube;UTSdUOC8Kac]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTSdUOC8Kac[/video]

Let's see... Keep the beef hot and juicy, and keep the lettuce and tomatoes crisp and cool. Yes, what a great new idea!

Those great folks at Mad Magazine called them on it, asking "Uh, wasn't that the way a hamburger was supposed to be in the first place?"

Hot dogs are a crime before God.

Anything from McDonald's is also disgusting to me. I had a Big Mac a couple weeks ago because I was dizzy from hunger and it was the only thing in sight. It tasted like a salty kitchen sponge and felt like it, too. The fries weren't half bad.

About twice a year I'll go to Taco Bell but I totally recognize that it's just cheap bad food.
