DailyDirt: DIY Junk Food
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Is it still junk food if you make it yourself? If you feel guilty about buying junk food and have lots of time on your hands, here are a few links that might inspire you to try recreating some popular snacks at home.
- Here’s a recipe for homemade Cheez-It crackers, which supposedly taste better than the store-bought version. By the time you’re done making these, you’ll wish that you had just gone to the store and bought a box of Cheez-Its. [url]
- McDonald’s Canada has revealed exactly how they make their fries, “from the farm to the fryer.” If you’ve ever wondered whether their fries are made from real potatoes, the answer is yes. Their fries are cut from whole potatoes harvested from farms in New Brunswick, Alberta, and Manitoba. [url]
- Read about one junk food enthusiast’s attempts to recreate Twinkies, Hostess Cupcakes, Oreos, and Fritos. While some of the homemade versions were somewhat “healthier” calorie-wise, the general concensus was that there’s just nothing like the real thing. [url]
