Photo of the Day: Chicken-ier? Frightening

| January 23, 2011

A friend of mine, currently living in the UK (thank you, FRIEND!!), sent me a photo of, what looks to be, ‘chicken’ bouillon cubes.  Is it possible for something, or rather, anything other than a real chicken (or use of a real chicken) to taste…’chicken-ier’?  Funny & Frightening…all at the same time.

We all have a friend in our lives who is smart, witty, intelligent: you give her cold pasta and chicken and she will whip out a gourmet meal in 15 minutes, she makes chicken soup from scratch for her sick neighborhood even though she is nursing a cold herself… you know that friend who will always be there to drive common sense into you, but doesn’t realize that she is as perfect as they come as a mother, wife and friend. That is our Patty….

  1. Did anyone notice a few years ago, a fast food company was advertising their new chicken strips as “real chicken”? That was a disturbing commercial, and no one said a word.

  15. anything that contains “natural flavour” “chicken flavour” etc — is hiding the MSG in these terms. Chickenier means more glutamates…does the English I grew up with mean anything anymore? Theresa
