Is nothing sacred anymore, indeed!! One part of me is yelling, “Cookie Monster has become a PC pussy!!” Another part is saying, “well, I guess someone should be telling kids to eat more healthy foods.” But shouldn’t that someome be their parents?
I myself have never really been a sweet tooth so sweets (candies) and cookies have never really been that alluring to me. I’ve always prefer fruit as a snack, although on the downside (before coming to Taiwan) I was an absolute coffee junkie and consumed an average of 15 cups a day Now I prefer green tea, and more often than not, plain old water.
Unfortunately there seems to be far too large a number of parents who can’t be fucking bothered actually parenting and prefer to let TV, videogames, and the Internet do it for them.
