I normally get in trouble when I announce things early, but I'm pretty excited about the new product that we are expecting to have on Friday. Chocolite has expanded their offerings on the protein bars. We will get their newest strawberry protein bar in, hopefully, on Friday. We will have samples ready.


I watched my seventh and eight hour of television last night. FRONTLINE had a special on last night about health care systems in five other industrialized nations and how they compare to America. I'll spare my thoughts on this program since I've already share them on another blog. However, the show that I got suckered in to afterwards,Independent Lens, is also worthy of a little discussion.

The documentary, King Corn, was featured showed two young film makers who plotted out, planted, and grew one acre of corn in Iowa and tracked where that corn went after it was put into the market place. Quite simply, this show was a big eye opener. If you've ever wondered what is in a lot of the processed food that we eat, it's corn. Beef that goes on the table? Corn. Soda? Corn.

The great irony of the movie is that we have so overly modified our corn stock to make it resistant to pesticide and create such high yields that we can no longer eat most of the corn grown on the farms without processing it first. I couldn't believe how far the reach of corn is. The film does a wonderful job exploring this reach and the interaction of the farmers and the government in an easy to follow way. I would certainly recommend watching this on repeat on PBS or checking it out from a video store or Netflix.
