It all started with Mild Cheddar with Llamas and this box:
But last time I went to buy gluten free mac & cheese, the box below was all I could find. Clearly Bob or Eunice or Janelle, someone in HR, or the boss's 5-year-old, SOMEone or someONES got their way about the freaking llama. Maybe they got swamped by calls from customers upset at the notion of llamas in their mac n' cheese, or livid because their mac n' cheese did not include actual llamas but they should have known because the protein content wasn't that high.
And so, now people can buy mild cheddar… with elbows. Instead of llamas, or, say… elbow macaroni. It occurs to me that maybe there's a restriction on what you can call macaroni, as this is made out of quinoa and supergrain and not the usual bleached or unbleached wheat flour & stuff. Maybe the wheat lobby has some sort of stranglehold on the word macaroni and pasta and noodles and anything these people might add to clarify the "llamas" and the "elbows."
It sounds ridiculous, but look around and tell me you don't see any proof of more ridiculous things in our world. See? So, Mild cheddar, with elbows, and not llamas it is.
But what happened to the llama? To be continued…
