with the persistence of a cockroach

Unbelievable. When I wrote this post five years ago, I overestimated the American palate. I thought there would be a brief marketing spike, six months on the shelves, then Uncrustables would go the way of Clear Pepsi and slap bracelets.

Not so! On the train last week, a young woman reached into her shopping bag and pulled out one of these little grodesters. STILL FROZEN, she licked it and said to her boyfriend, “Dang, I can’t wait until this thing is defrosted. They the bomb!”

  1. At least they stopped making the grilled cheese ones.

    By the by, do you have the same issue with Lunchables?

  2. yeah, when i was a cook’s assistant at a camp a few years back, we gave these to the pickiest eaters. when i looked at the nutritional info on the back i was mortified. i just can’t believe what some people eat.

  3. i am reading these posts in reverse order. i think you should remind yourself and Kitten of this when you think the sports pizza won’t last. i think you might be very very wrong. people are going to LOVE them.
