“Line up boys and girls to get your hearty meal. Cardboard Soup has all the vitamins and natural ingredients that you will ever need. Besides building strong bodies and strong minds the taste is wonderful. It also increases your stamina and you will feel great after a bowl of it. Professional athletes eat it before stepping out onto the field. Once you try it you will never buy any other kind of soup. Remember to tell Mommy and Daddy to get you a box of Cardboard Soup the next time they go shopping.”
“O—K cut,” says the director of the commercial. "That’s a wrap. How could anybody in their right mind buy that dry, tasteless, boring stuff?

The healthier it is,
the drier the taste.
The tastier it is,
the more
unhealthy it becomes.
The world is waiting
for somebody to
come up with something
tasty and healthy combined.

Hi Charlotte. It sure isn't easy for me either. I'm too scared to read the ingredients in the food I eat. I would get sick just worrying about what I'm eating.

So true the unhealthy things taste so much better.
Trying very hard to be a healthy eater. Not easy.
