We’re Southerners, we’re not stupid

Congratulations Krispy Kreme, you have just joined the ranks of the top bull shitters of America. Just like all the other top bull shitters, it’s all marketing and your trying to hoodwink us. I won’t be fooled, you fool.

EPG, estimated miles per gallon. Bull shit. Check it out, these people are allowed to really miss the mark when it comes to letting us know the true EPG of an automobile. Look at the mortgage industry, that was some neat stuff they pulled off. Televangelist, those guys are great. Send them money and you will get closer to god. I bet not one of these guys could buy their way into heaven or out of hell. Once I went to the eye doctor because my vision was getting really bad. They said I needed glasses. This was the kind of place that examines you and sells glasses. $500 and two pair of glasses later my vision was no better.
What the hell? I didn’t know any better, I had never had eye problems. Turns out I had cataracts. Did the guy wanting to sell me glasses tell me this? NO of course not he just sold me useless glasses.

Anyway so goes Krispy Kreme. A southern institution is hood winking us. I will still eat KK doughnuts. I’m a southern, I’m not stupid. Check out this article.

Krispy Kreme drops trans fats

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Krispy Kreme announced Monday that it has dropped trans fats from its menu. That means its doughnuts and other foods and beverages contain less than a half-gram of trans fats.

But the original glazed doughnut is still a 200-calorie indulgence of white flour, sugar and fat, deep-fried in a blend of vegetable oil and palm oil that’s higher in saturated fats than the previous formula.

The bottom line: An original glazed doughnut still contains 200 calories and 12 grams of total fat. It now has 6 grams of bad fats (all saturated) rather than the 7 grams of saturated and trans fats that it had before.

The doughnut hounds in the newsroom didn’t notice any change in taste, although, of course, they complained that they were sampling cold doughnuts instead of hot ones. (It’s the first formula change for the original glazed since the ’80s.)

Does removing trans fats from Krispy Kreme doughnuts affect whether you’ll eat them? How about in other restaurant foods, like French fries?
