So this is the kind of dessert turkey that will sweeten your Thanksgiving dinner.
Gobs and gobs of white, milk, and dark chocolate.
And they actually shaped it all like a turkey.
Sort of cute, but also sort of sugary disgusting, no?
Generally, I'm not a huge fan of eating turkey either.
Maybe when they boil it in oil, and it's cooked through and through, it actually comes out juicy and not so bad.
But give me a nice piece of beef, and I'll be your pal forever!
A colleague who was a veterinarian and worked inspecting meat plants overseas told me some things about the cleanliness though that made my skin crawl.
"The cleanliness outside of the U.S. is WAY DIFFERENT than here!"--and not in a good way.
Even in places that do maintain clean facilities and healthy animals, the way that "they make the sausage" sounded so unappetizing.
It made me think of all those PETA and other commercials that show the chickens and other caged birds in those crowded and filthy (and diseased) conditions...even aside from the cruelty, it's enough to make you cringe.
He said they mash the meat until it's like just a pink paste that gets shot into the tubes for hot dogs and things like that.
"It looks disgusting!"
Also, they put parts of the animal in that are basically leftover meats from the head and other parts of the animal that did NOT sound desirable at all.
I'm thinking to myself...FROM THE HEAD.
Uh, no more hot dogs for me, thank you.
I think that I'll stick with a nice steak or burger or something KOSHER and palatable.
You can have your turkey and your sausage and eat it, but not me! ;-)
