Default Dominos breadbowl pasta

So I'm watching American Idol tonight, and there's a commercial for Dominos Breadbowl Pasta. Yep. You read that right. A bowl made of bread, filled with pasta. You know, in case your diet is deficient in carbs and fat. Can you believe that despite the obesity epidemic, they're coming up with new ways to pack food with more calories?! It's irresponsible, and it's pissing me off.

thinpossible, I agree with you...there really SHOULD be some measures put into place to make healthy eating more possible for our country...we have an obesity epidemic that is killing us literally--physically and financially and that is only the beginning of the havoc obesity entails..

It pisses me off even more to realize they $$$ those crappy restaurants charge only to turn out some garbage like that!

You know what drives me nuts? When they stuff/wrap one meat with another. I think that's so gross. Kind of like the pasta-laying happening here. Everyone, get ready for a sugar crash.

Ugh! I feel the same way when I saw that commercial too. Its so irritating. They tell you to lose weight, but they do everything they can to prevent that, it seems.

I saw a commerical for that thing for the first time today. Not only did it look nasty, I thought the concept of it was just completly disgusting. Disturbing that how unhealthy that is, all the fat, carbs, calories, is even legal.

There's a food here (I've only seen it in NJ) that makes me feel the same way! It's pizza topped with baked ziti and most pizza places carry it. When I saw it I thought "are you kidding me?!?!"

This is how I felt about some horrible thing that KFC was selling. It was a bowl filled with mashed potatoes, topped with fried chicken chunks, corn, and then smothered in gravy. The only thing missing was the defibrilator.

Crazy4Kenny - I just read up on the Pepsi Throwback, I'd never heard of it before your post. I'm a little conflicted on the whole idea. On the one hand, it's good to see a company getting away from HFCS in some capacity. On the other hand, it's all sugar anyhow and using "real" sugar instead of HFCS doesn't make soda any healthier!

Strange. Whoda thunk that we'd actually be advertising things "made with real sugar!" like it's a good thing?

It IS a good thing! HFCS is way worse for you than sugar could ever be. It's kinda making the soda a little better, in that at least our bodies know how to process sugar. You are absolutely 100% right, this does NOT make the soda "healthy" in some way. But they do get extra brownie points for recognizing the need was there for such a product. I thought I was going to go crazy a few years ago when 7-Up advertised their soda as ALL NATURAL. How, with HFCS (genetically modified) were they able to do that? Because corn is natural? It boggles the mind.

There's a whole subculture of people who search high & low for soda with real sugar. Mexican Pepsi & Coke, Jarritos, the kosher stuff @ Passover time, Jones Sodas, all of it.

I read that food manufacturers produce about 1000 extra calories per person per day over what we should eat to maintain a healthy weight (I think it was like 3600 produced as compared to 2500 needed for average maintenance). So they have to come up with ways to get us to eat more food than our bodies need. And they're very, very good at marketing, especially to children. When you think of it that way, it's outrageous! Our health is endangered to enrich the corporate bottom line.
