• Watermelon Oreos And The Temptations of a Black Man

    I woke up this morning with a Facebook friend linking me the image above:  “You are gonna’ love these watermelon oreos, Daryl!”

    Well, I will say this:  I love me some watermelon, and if loving watermelon is wrong, I do not want to be right!  It is juicy, good and delicious.  But when you pair the goodness of watermelon with sweet vanilla skin of a Oreo Cookie, how could I resist?  Right?

    Wrong.

    I think this is just simply preposterous.  As if diabetes is not a big enough problem, why take something as innocent, pure, delicious and healthy as a watermelon, then exploit it by pairing it up with a cookie that is just bad for you?

    To me, I think there needs to be a limit on what we can do with natural food.  If we have a problem with obesity in this country, then stop finding ways to make decently tasty things that are natural sweet, addictive and bad for you.  Companies are no longer allowed to put powdered up coke rock into soda drinks, so why should they be allowed to surround the natural flavor of watermelon with addictive Oreo cookies?
