When I was a kid, my mom used to pack Quaker Oats chewy granola bars in my lunch for a treat. Stuffed with chocolate or dried fruit bits, these bars were highly coveted in the lunch room because they tasted like candy and had a good trade value. I’m talking Twinkies, Hostess Cupcakes, real prime goods.
I recently revisited those granola bars in search of a tasty yet healthy snack, and was knocked on my ass by all the sugar. I couldn’t even taste the oats in the the granola bar, you know, the MAIN ingredient? I threw the whole box away–no, I was not going to donate that shit to charity. I care about poor people’s health.
