Disturbing product of the month:
Armour Pork Brains with Milk Gravy
Where and when bought:
Ingles supermarket, Asheville, N.C., October 1995, for 73 cents.
That delicious milk gravy.
Extra special bonus points:
Contains a mighty 1,170 percent of the U.S. recommended daily
allowance for cholesterol. Yes, that's no typo - 1,170 percent.
Suggested alternative use:
Switch label with a fruit cocktail can for a horrific lunchbox prank.
"People love'em!" piped Nancy Dedera, spokeswoman for Phoenix-based
Dial Corp., owner of Armour. But, alas, we couldn't discover the
breadth of that love, because she refused to release sales figures.
A brain-eater herself (she likes hers with hot sauce), Dedera
brushed aside concerns about the whopping cholesterol count, saying,
"If you're going to eat brains, you're not going to worry about
cholesterol." Good point.
