"don't underestimate the protein power of a fresh mini iceberg lettuce salad on the side"

OK boss.  Go ahead and give me the numbers on claims 1-5 while you're at it, except for the "give kids lettuce and not water fountains" one.

I like iceberg lettuce for its texture. Not everything on the plate has to be high protein, you know.

Myth #7

Iceberg is the most successful Jewish rapper of the 1990s, with hits like Can't Touch Gefiltefish and Oy Oy, Baby

Guilt-free is a flavor. It just happens to pair well with bacon.

Am I the only one confused when tfa keeps mentioning "leafy lettuce" as having all these wonderful features in an article that is supposed to be pushing iceberg a head lettuce?

BABY ICEBERG LETTUCE IS TOO YOUNG

I want to commit vegetable infanticide.

//Give me the veal with baby iceberg and baby carrots.
//I was sad when I found out baby carrots are just carved up adult carrots.

Lame article written by a lettuce farm big enough to move to a different part of the state for half of the growing season.

Head lettuce is great for filling your stomach with low value food so you don't eat so much high value food and get fat. That's about it.

It adds a nice crunch to a sandwich.

Myth X - Iceberg lettuce is more than a mostly tasteless bulking agent that only exists because it is shelf stable for a relatively long period.

The main reason I eat it. The other reason is it adds crunch to salads.

TIL there's an Iceberg Lettuce Council and they're pushing their sh*tty leaves.

I will never turn down a nice wedge salad. Iceberg, bacon, tomato, bleu cheese....what's not to like?

That struck me, too. When I think "leafy" I think green leaf lettuce or romaine or something. But I guess iceberg is made up of "leaves", they're just rolled up into a ball. "Bally lettuce" doesn't have the same ring to it.

It transforms a simply bologna sandwich.

Stealth Advertisers: you should know that the thing least likely to make me buy iceberg lettuce is a listicle of facts about iceberg lettuce. In fact, the only thing I like less than iceberg lettuce is reading about iceberg lettuce.

/ I'm being melodramatic; I do occasionally eat it and like it fine. Still. This is a terrible ad.

Iceberg lettuce is always shipped fresh, never frozen.  Kinda ironic don't ya think.
