Warning: cranky mini-rant ahead!

Fruit2Day? Wait…what? “Drink this! It’s just like eating fruit!”

What, I ask you, is so difficult about eating fruit in the first place? Why do we feel the need to take something simple and perfect as-is and run it through a number of different processes in order to make it palatable?

People: fill a reusable container with mango chunks. Or grapes. Or peaches. Or just grab a damn apple, for crying out loud. They’re abundant. They’re hardy. They’re cheap. They’re fruit, dammit. Don’t contribute to our wasteful processed food culture in this way.

Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go shake my cane and yell at those damn kids to get off my lawn.
