With Food Bars recalled, 1.6 no longer in production, Coffiest’s lack of complete nutrition and plastic taste of 2.0 I think it’s all time we sit back and watch (or hopefully re-watch) The Stuff from 1985.

I’m beginning to see it as quite prescient regarding RL.

The Stuff always made me think of aspartame actually. A scientist in a lab studying a potential anti-ulcer drug got some on his finger and absent-mindedly licked it and discovered it was sweet. Yes really. Cue onslaught of poorly researched, heavily marketed, potentially neurotoxic aspartame products.
