Franken-Fruit

Can I just get a dang orange?!?…not an orange hybrid, or some genetically modified fruit that changes-colors-in-the-sun or tastes like cotton candy, or is ridiculously tiny or ridiculously massive. I am tired of all the crazy fruits offered. Grocery shopping has become far more laborious having to try to figure out what the damn apple […]

Watch-Your-Mouth

I…like many MANY other food fanatics, have got a personal list of terminology that I can’t stand seeing used. Please NEVER call me a ‘foodie’…I eat food and enjoy discussing it, but I am no ‘foodie.’ And the terms ‘yummy’ and ‘scrumptious’ just kind of piss me off. There are a BUNCH of other words […]

Paying Pilgrimage To ‘Holey’ Cheese

Switzerland is known for many foods…of course there are a few that are a little strange to the typical American, BUT most Swiss foods, including their chocolate and various other treats, are so legendary that even non-Swiss foods are trying to be associated with the small, neutral, country. BUT, there is one Swiss delicacy that really is a king among the greats…CHEESE. But not just any […]

We all have those little breakfast rituals and routines…But for many, it is not just a habit, but an addiction: Some crave caffeine, others are dependent on doughnuts, and eggs are essential for many.

More Than Pizza and Pasta: What Italians Really Eat

Whenever I am in another country, I always try to stop off at a grocery store to see what the locals REALLY eat. Sometimes I find some surprising stuff… While in the Tuscany region of Italy, I discovered that Italians have some pretty crazy food (at least for my American palate). While I have visited many […]

Protein Bars Judged By Iron Chef

Here on Fed Up, determining if  a food should be ‘Recommended‘ or ‘Ranted‘ about can be complicated? How do you weigh certain values? Does organic or natural compensate for overpriced? Will strong nutritional stats mean that food is still worth eating if it is nasty? We use many methods, and some values are weighed more heavily in […]

Milk Soda?!?

Ever since I was a little kid, I have been fortunate enough to frequently visit the prestine country of Switzerland, a quaint utopian world where things just seem better. The air is fresher, the cities are calmer, and even the cow poop smells nice . But despite all the time I have spent in the […]

We All Scream For Swiss Cream

I am in the fun, Swiss town of Montreux, walking along Lake Geneva. As I have mentioned many times on Fed Up, the small country of Switzerland has made huge impacts in the wonderful world of food. I am pretty sure, Swiss-based Nestlé is one of the largest food companies in the world. Of course […]
