Objectionable Food Adjectives

Objectionable Food Adjectives

The list of objectionable adjectives that Big Food uses to market their products seems never ending, and I thought it’d be fun to create a mashup with some of my favorites.  They seem to get more extreme each year, and I’m looking forward to seeing what they can come up with in 2011.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Thanks to the folks who sent in suggestions.  Did I miss any humdingers?  Share ’em in the comments!

Great list or rather great collage of a bad list maybe? I can’t believe I don’t see this one there, you’ve done such a great job but Super-Sized seems to be missing!

I like the “mantastic” and “macho.” I always thought it was macho when a runningback pushed the entire defensive line back into the endzone. I guess other people think is macho to have man boobs and ranch dressing on your chin.

I like the mash-up style, ha! It reminds me of when they would show marketing in cartoons in the 80’s, and it would be big words in neon that the cartoon character would be running through or away from.

Great collection! Wonderful example of what an extremist country we are. Gluttony and remorse. Take a look at all the diet books lining the shelves in bookstores right now as diet/detox season is upon us. You could make another collage of all of those words!
