I am fascinated and disgusted by the idea of tamales in a can. WTF.

But yeah, few years of Jiffy Muffin mix whoo. Jittery indeed.

We have created a society in which it is cheaper (in the short run, anyway) and easier to eat poorly than it is to eat well.

I have little doubt that this is quite intentional.

I have eaten and enjoyed tamales in a can. It's been a while, mainly because I've given up almost all canned meals.
