11. The Individually Wrapped CashewApril 21, 2008
This is an abortion of sustainability, to say the least.
One would hope that the pearl within the wrapper would somehow trump its cashew colleagues–but rest assured this is an ordinary nut: prosaic, unadorned, banal.
Aside from a light gown of salt, it rests naked within its deplorable womb of plastic.
A saving grace is that the single portion offers calorie control. Although, if your cashew problems are such that you can only allow yourself one at a time, you may need more than a plastic sheath to control your will.
Please stay tuned for Japan’s next debut, the cashew embedded in a block of solid iron.
