Your food is a lie

Your Food is a Lie

This list (and the above video) might change the way you look at some of your most favorite food ...

1) Froot Loops all taste the same despite the color.

2) Cup of Noodles are mostly empty inside!

3) Cap'n Crunch isn't a Captain! Captains have 4 stripes on their sleeves while "Cap'n" only has 3 making him a Commander not a Captain.

4) Carrots don't help your eyesight. Also, baby carrots are just regular carrots that have been chopped up! Rabbits don't eat carrots in the wild either.

5) Oranges aren't always orange; sometimes they are green or yellow. To make all our oranges "orange" they are treated with ethylene gas. And limes will turn yellow if they are left on their trees.

6) "Double Dipping" doesn't spread any more germs than "single dipping," and the 5 second rule doesn't exist.

7)Double Stuf Oreos don't actually have double the "stuf" it's actually closer to 1.89X.

Did any of these surprise you? Have you known the truth for a long time? Grab a snack and tell us in the comments below.

A peanut isn't a pea or a nut. It's a legume.
How did they miss this?

The stripes on the aleeve denote your rank.
If you are in charge of a ship, regardless of your rank,
you are the CAPTAIN.

A commander of a vessel is called "Captain" by courtesy,irrespective of his naval rank. Therefore Crunch is a captain. Besides, US Navy uniform rank insignia are not binding on cartoon, or any other, navies.

Our pet rabbits ate carrots and the tops. It was fun poking them through the chickenwire of their pen.

I believe the author of this gets away with some of the things he says by using comments like,"rabbits in the WILD don't eat carrots". He uses semantics, however carrots do grow in the wild as do so many rabbits so possibly in the author's research may have to be augmented.

They certainly aren't easy to find.
Are they pulled up tight or hidden out of sight?
Are they more up front or are they way behind?

We pulled all the volumes off the ref'rence shelves,
scouring ev'ry glossary & index.
No bull, we did all the research by ourselves,
even searched Google for it on the Internet.


There is no clinical research. There's no definitive data.
There is no proof that chicken nuggets exist
throughout zoology readings, especially Vertebrata.
And still the rumors of their presence persist.

Next time, while you're waiting at a fast-food chain,
tell them 'bout our poor dissected rooster.
In line, ask your server how they got the name.
Ask them if what they're serving had been neutered.
