Remember when you could buy more than one piece of candy for a cent? When a bag of mixed lollies was a feast for under 20 cents?
An old friend and I once found a one-dollar note in the gutter and purchased so many lollies together with a can of soft drink that consuming it all made us feel quite ill.
Aah, those were the days. Yet surely we’re older and wiser now? Aren’t we?
But we can’t keep eating junk food like we’re kids when we’re adults.
Better still, don’t eat such nutritionally vacuous “food” when you’re young. But try telling that to a teenager.
Ironically, because candy can be sold to the masses on the basis that it’s “low-fat“, we eat it thinking that it’s a healthy alternative compared to not only chocolate or biscuits but also a proper meal containing saturated fat.
But nothing could be further from the truth.
Now there’s food-for-thought.
