Picture of the Day

December 30, 2016

I saw an ad for this the other day in the paper and nearly lost my sh*t.

Rough translation: NEW, peeled whole onions, from Holland. Ready peeled onions speed up cooking, clean and easy: Rinse, cut and cook! Suitable for all cooking, especially for sauces and casseroles.

Extreme civilization has arrived in Finland: We’re suddenly too busy, too lazy and too adverse to getting dirty that we need ready-peeled and packaged onions (that aren’t even Finnish – AKA local) in order to simplify our lives. I don’t even want to know what the carbon footprint of this is.

I expressed my disdain to the retail chain in question…

I really hope that consumers in this country will not fall for this kind of crap. Peel your own onions and make sure they’re LOCAL! It’s not going to kill you.

    This is right up there with the pre-boiled and peeled eggs I’ve seen in the store. Or the already made hamburger patties my husband saw in some ads earlier this week.

      Haha, somebody will make a million…

      Well, the pre-made burger patties are a pretty normal thing in Canada, but the pre-peeled produce… Ugh, seriously… And the carbon footprint?!
