I couldn’t resist sharing Mark Bittman’s recent NY Times article about the debacle that is McDonald’s attempt to make oatmeal. Apparently, McDonald’s latest effort to peddle “health food” products has (not surprisingly) failed nutritional standards. Not only does the new oatmeal product cost more than a cheese burger (how is that even possible?), it also “contains more sugar than a Snickers bar and only 10 fewer calories than a McDonald’s cheeseburger or Egg McMuffin.”
My favorite line from the article is; A more accurate description than “100% natural whole-grain oats,” “plump raisins,” “sweet cranberries” and “crisp fresh apples” would be “oats, sugar, sweetened dried fruit, cream and 11 weird ingredients you would never keep in your kitchen.”
