What would the founding fathers say about today’s food industry?

How would they react if they walked into a modern supermarket?

    If they walked into a grocery store, I think they’d want to know where all the food was — especially if we kept them from the store’s perimeter!


    Those of us that follow your site know this stuff. But 90% of America does not know all of this information nor seem to care about it. I am a Health Coach and try to teach people these things. Some get it – many do not get it or believe it.

    Interesting question!

    I think they would be surprised at how few people it takes to grow food, the variety of products available, and freshness of products.

    UGh. IF Cherry Coke contained actual cherries, well then it would be so expensive no one would buy it! haha, that’s I’m SURE why they don’t add them (but heck, they could at least add ONE to a can so they could be listed on the ingredient list….come on “smart” people at Coca Cola!

    Just like there is no Newton in Fig Newton.

    I think if the founding fathers walked into a supermarket they would be crying of happiness watching all the variety. At those times one bad crop could kill an entire town. If they had to choose between hunger or GMOs they would take them.

    Washington would say “This beverage will Rot Your Teeth!”
