You may have seen reports that Campbell is going to sell Halal certified products.

Well, that is sort of true, but you probably won’t be able to buy them because it is the Canadian division that is making and marketing Campbell Halal-certified Products.

For those who don’t know, Halal is the Islamic version of Kosher, and they generally follow the same rules about cleanliness and no artificial ingredients. Trust me, if you want hot dogs, Kosher is the only way to go, because most hot dogs qualify to be sold by CMOT Dibbler.

See, the thing is, most religious groups are a lot harder to bribe than government inspectors, and they are a lot pickier about the rules. If you are new to an area, Kosher and Halal are your friends until you develop immunity to the local cuisine.

Oh yeah! True about ‘dogs (and almost all non-kosher -halal meat products! Smallgoods companies here are being caught almost annually for health and/or quality infringements, and we have stricter codes than you do! Luckily, when we moved to central Vic, we found there are a few Halal butchers and deli’s that provide good products (and you REALLY can taste the difference!)

I’ve suspected for awhile that CMOT Dibbler must be running your FDA, and his cousin, GSYB* Dibbler is running ours! 😉 😆

If you want to see some major garbage, look on the labels of food for diabetics or low-sodium diets. I assume the added crap is for “taste”, but it frankly sucks.

I buy bread from a bakery that will go stale and/or get moldy within a week. The regular bread they sell in supermarkets seems to last forever. I mean, come on, if the mold won’t eat it, why am I?

The ingredients in food should be found in a kitchen, not a chemistry lab.
