So have Amazon deliver your processed transfats directly to your door http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/customer-reviews/B00032E3FI/ref=cm_cr_dp_2_1/002-4625308-4661622?%5Fencoding=UTF8&s=gourmet-food

After you read the comments be sure to add this to your Wedding Registry. Wink

Now let's be fair. This time last year, I was in a new city with no friends or family and spent 10 weeks on crutches. If it wasn't for a grocery delivery service, I would have lived on pizza and other fast food delivery. Granted, here in Vancouver I was able to get organic produce, but the other food provided by the service was all "healthy" or organic processed food and pretty pricy. I would have loved to get some bologna.

And as an aside, processed meats are not significant sources of trans fats (saturates, but not trans). Trans fats come from the partial hydrogenation of unsaturated (vegetable ) oils.

Sometimes it is interesting/amusing to read some of the reviews people write.

Right you are! (On both counts.) But, cummon, you aren't going to call Amazon for balogna when you live in a city with so many wonderful little restaurants and public markets, now are you? Wink

Hope you're up and strolling along the seawall at will these days! Wink

Perhaps they're only selling it as a paperweight? Laughing No, that would make too much sense.

Guffaw, now EVERYONE, make sure as Erin suggests that you read the reviews---they are hysterical (okay maybe I'm the only one who finds the review from the Louisiana pygmy delightful, but maybe not)

I find people in general very amusing, but especially when no one knows who they are.

The comments made it for me too. I sat here chuckling and thinking that there are more sick minded people in the world than I ever realised... isn't it great! Laughing
