Fancy Food Show
On Monday Mark and Francis went to the Fancy Food Show at the Javits Center in New York City. The show was heavy on branding and marketing and short on "real food". Mark described many items as "pretend premium" such as the ice cream Francis tried - it's vanilla - no it's vanilla extract - no it's "vanillin". Do miss the "wine nuts" peanuts that are flavored to "bring out the subtleties" of the wine such as chardonnay or merlot. "The biggest hunk of idiocy" proclaimed Francis.
