The Day Oatmeal Turned Sci-Fi On Us

Ah, McDonald's, our long-time friend who we can trust will insert itself into our children's bodies with the false promise of meals that make you happy and toys that aren't made from 6 year old chinese workers.

We love you mackie D. And I wonder if we're going to love your latest product (read food), the new Fruit and Maple Oatmeal which they also call "a bowl of wholesome".

Yes, it's true. McDonald's has jumped on the health-wagon and instead of serving compressed cow mush in synthetic bread, they will now pursue to serve pure goodness.

Or will they?

Reading their ingredients list for their "oatmeal" can make you happily surprised first; wholegrain rolled oats, apples and raisins. Wow, I thought. They have actually changed. But the more I read, the more I new I was dealing who someone who, just like stubborn Gaddafi, will never ever change their old out of date-ways.

Food-starch modifier, sodium phosphate, caramel colour, sodium stearoyl lactylate and carrageenan are just some of the lab-made ingredients in the oatmeal.

Go ahead son, have a bowl of wholesome.

You know you want to.
