Olive Crazy: All About Olives and Olive Oil
Jun 292012

I recently shared on Twitter and Facebook the article from Cracked.com called the ‘The 6 Creepiest Lies the Food Industry Is Feeding You.’ Featured as creepiest food number 1 is olive oil. The writers at Cracked do a great job of mixing fact and funny and often come up with stories that will scare the hair off your head.

Along the same subject vein as the Cracked article is this infographic from FrugalDad.com entitled ‘These Fancy Foods Are Frauds.’

“Oh waiter, I’ll have the Kobe beef burger drizzled in extra virgin olive oil and a glass of champagne. My husband will have the saffron-honey salmon, and for the kids, chicken nuggets and hamburgers. Go easy on the mud – I mean pepper”. Mm mm good!

  1. Mary,
    Keep the information coming. We wonder why we have an obesity epidemic in the US. All this mislabeling of food items or relaxed standards of food labeling are the little white lies the FDA feed the public and put a stamp of OK on misinformation. It would be great if the US could set the example by and be its own whistleblower. In the meantime we will just have to depend on you!
