Oxymoron?

On a recent trip to the store, I stumbled upon what I thought was an oxymoron.





That's right, it says "Real Margarine."

A quick Google search has enlightened me on the matter.

By FDA standards, margarine, a butter substitute, must contain 80% fat (in its various hydrogenated forms, of course). I guess the Nucoa brand hits the mark, whereas all those "Imitation Margarines" are merely buttery spreads.

Thanks, Nucoa, for keeping Margarine real and pure.

Gross! I love trans fat. By the way, my friend Evelyn read your last blog post and pointed out that if you're trying to impress the ladies, maybe talking about your differing leg lengths and balding hair isn't the way to do it...ha ha! Just kidding. Love ya!

Buy some of that and let it sit in your cupboard for about 2 months. Yes, that's the beauty of hydrogenation. At least Nucoa admits to being "real".

That's okay. Fat makes everything taste better!
