I am so annoyed with Foodmail!!
As of October 1st the foodmail program has changed and many of the things they used to allow are no longer included. The general goal is to make the choices healthier and not cover things that are not considered good for you. Fine. I get that. But they seem to have a skewed view on what things fall under this category.
Things that are no longer allowed: Sour cream, bacon, Kraft dinner. Annoying but I guess I can agree. These are not the healthiest choices.
More things that you can't get anymore: Chickpeas, hummus, brushetta, cream cheese, dry pasta noodles.
But yet you can still get: Delissio Pizzas and Hungry Man frozen dinners.
Pasta not healthy? In moderation, it's a staple in most balanced diet plans. And in what world is a frozen pizza healthier than hummus? Don't get me wrong, I'm happy they still include pizzas because they cost $17 each at the northern. But I seriously can't get chickpeas? Since when are they not healthy? Hungry Man dinners! They are not only disgusting but a heart attack waiting to happen with their 'One Pound of Food'.
I just don't get it. Grrrrrrr.
