The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food



http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/24/ma...ewanted=1&_r=0

Under his leadership, General Mills had overtaken not just the cereal aisle but other sections of the grocery store. The company’s Yoplait brand had transformed traditional unsweetened breakfast yogurt into a veritable dessert. It now had twice as much sugar per serving as General Mills’ marshmallow cereal Lucky Charms. And yet, because of yogurt’s well-tended image as a wholesome snack, sales of Yoplait were soaring, with annual revenue topping $500 million. Emboldened by the success, the company’s development wing pushed even harder, inventing a Yoplait variation that came in a squeezable tube — perfect for kids. They called it Go-Gurt and rolled it out nationally in the weeks before the C.E.O. meeting. (By year’s end, it would hit $100 million in sales.)

It's a longer read for some, but an important one. The part about the Lunchables hit close to me since I actually ate some of that as a kid....and it was the marketing to kids that really got to me.

How can you divide salt and fat by Satisfying Crunch? They are not of the same dimension. Thats likes dividing by zero. Impossible!

Apparently, Satisfying Crunch is ~4 lbs of pressure from the mouth for the most rewarding chip.

I don't know why, but chips just aren't my thing. I don't care much for them.

Yikes - doritos are my #1 favourite junk food, which is significant considering that I don't normally eat junk food or snack much. Funny how they used that in the picture!
