Via Fooducate: A Twinkie Mix & Match Game

Fooducate

From Fooducate, a blog dedicated to "providing practical advice for buying healthy food at the supermarket," we have this marvelous visual aid: A Visual of Twinkie's 37 Ingredients. Fooducate also provides a handy list of the 37 ingredients (see below), with the suggestion that, by way of a fast food parlor game, you "try to match the ingredient list to the individual images!" Brilliant. Kind of like 32 Short Films About Glenn Gould, or 6 Characters in Search of An Author, but with junk food science. Okay, we're over-reaching terribly, but it is funny, if somewhat disturbing. And thanks to @SlowFoodUSA for the link to the post. Fitting, really.

Your food chemistry guessing game. (Hint: start with the last one.)
