Is this a sign of the Apocalypse? Check out the latest health food, in the extended entry, so you can try to guess first:
This is the package for Utz brand pork rinds:
I first noticed the red dot a week or two ago, but the rest of the label is at least a few weeks older than that.
I suppose pork rinds are carbohydrate-free and therefore Atkins-friendly, but I never thought I would live to see the day when deep-fried pig fat would be considered in any way healthy. Then again, my mother is still amazed that Utz and its competitors have the nerve to charge potato chip prices for pork rinds. When she was a little girl (the '30s) the local butcher used to fry them up and give them away to the neighborhood kids whenever he slaughtered a hog.Posted by Dr. Weevil at July 14, 2004 12:41 PM
