Did you ever wonder if Cheez Whiz was real food?
One of my favorite “foodie” web pages, Summer Tomato, was created by Darya Pino who has a PhD in neuroscience from UC San Francisco and also writes for several publications including The Huffington Post, SF Weekly, KQED Science and Edible San Francisco. Her latest post proposes a slightly “tongue in cheek” method for determining if the food you are buying is real food! She calls it her supermarket GPS.
Of course, you won’t need it if you shop at your local farmers market! And by the way, if you run Cheez Whiz through the test – it fails!
