Industrial processing.  You don't think that those Hawaiian kettle-style potato chips are really made 1 pound at a time by a smiling old guy in a tiki shirt, do you?

That's really more of a chicken strip than a chicken nugget, innit?

Kettle Chips are made in Salem, OR. The facility is located across the road from the state pen so I can only presume the chips are made by violent rapists and murders working down time, each of whom likely has myriad infectious STDs.

It's scary that people don't have this basic level of understanding of the industrial base of our civilization. Do they think everything is 3D printed?

Just don't buy the "sea salt" ones, and you're good.

Just get a super soaker filled with BBQ sauce, and another with sweet mustard.

This is a misconception--violent offenders are not allowed out on the chain gang in the Kettle Chip factory, after the 'bubbling Carl' incident with the hot oil a few years ago.  Nowadays only the sexual predators on work release from south wing are allowed to work with the potatoes.  You can, however, rest assured that every potato has been lovingly caressed by an HIV-infected pedophile and/or inserted into one of the fine Quality Assurance statutory rapists on the production line, before being lightly dusted with all natural sea salt and various flavors of the herpes virus.

I am guessing because people love fried foods that much...There is no explanation, unless someone wants to make it a swimming pool.

I think the stuff is a henway.

You're getting boring. Can't you find something new to pretend to obsess about.

I can understand wanting to be cost effective and using up as much scraps as possible. I can understand adding in certain seasonings, salts, fats and flavor enhancers to increase the taste.

50 years ago, we threw a lot of meat scraps away. Tons were given to farmers for free, like for their hogs. More were sold to pet food companies. Some made it into the fertilizer industry.

Some time in the 70's, someone decided that was a waste of money. After much experimentation they came up with edible products made basically from garbage that would not kill the consumer, but didn't do much for them either.

Even those potato chips and cheetos you love so much went through years of testing to develop the right flavor and texture. (The orange/yellow hue is actually the flavoring. A complex mix of absolutely nothing fresh, using a lot of byproducts.)

Cheap, easily made food the masses love because the stuff has been engineered for their taste, desired crunch factor and appearance. Profit!
There's a lot of things you eat made basically from scraps. Especially containing chicken, beef and shellfish like crabs. You turn to them because they taste good and the real thing has become nearly outrageously expensive. A plump roasting chicken back in the 60s, complete with giblets, cost $2.50. A similar chicken today runs about $10 and you don't get the giblets.

Grocery store meat departments gave away beef soup bones for free. Now, they package and charge for them. Chicken wings were dirt cheap until the Buffalo Wings craze started with football games and then they quadrupled in price. (Folks used to cut off the wing tips and save them. When they had enough, they used them as a base for chicken broth.)

When you start adding in cellulose, sawdust, major amounts of cheap soy along with ground up tendons and gristle then loading in artificial flavor to make the bland mix tasty, a little light ought to go off in your brain informing you that it just aint right.

It might not be against the law, but what you're selling folks is not all that nutritious, and often contains greases and fats they really shouldn't have. (Ever buy those boxed burgers from the discount store and cook them up to find they shrink by almost half and fill the pan with grease? Some cook well but taste like cardboard because of the mass of non-meat additives packed into thre mix.)

As food prices go higher, you're going to be presented with processed items containing things you normally wouldn't eat, designed to taste good and containing less nutrition than shoe leather.

On the plus side, we have a tremendously less amount of food waste from processing plants and people are steadily working on ways to use every part of an animal.

Ever notice how those diet frozen dinner seem mainly to contain pasta? Cheap and filling. Pasta companies used to give tons of damaged and miss marked boxes to charities, providing them with tons of ready food -- until someone realized the pasta could be ground up, shipped back to thed mixing section and added to fresh pasta dough as it begins it journey.

Charities experienced a dramatic loss in free food for the poor. However, the pasta companies saved millions in bucks. More than the tax write-offs they got through donating their factory seconds to charities.

Get used to it. There's going to be a lot more before things cycle back to cheap, good unadulterated food.
