Just wondering...

...that, if broccoli & spinach were advertised as much and as well as pizzas & chocolates, would they taste as good to us?

hehe....Popeye did try, didn't he??? :)
And i think they'd have tasted as good, advertising or no advertising, if they had saturated fat like pizza and chocolate....as someone claimed "All good things in life are either immoral, fattening, or overpriced"

lol, what a thought, I dont think they'd ever taste as good as chocolates, its sinful to even say that.

.;~D) well, yes lets blame advertisement.. for our temptation to unhealthy things..;)

may be, if not ad something else will trigger our thought process, its US..

most thing which may not be good for you, are those which you are attracted to...

Well, pizzas come with broccoli and spinach toppings; and I recently had a spinach ice cream. Does that count as wholesome food?

I love spinach, and thats because of popeye, I so wanted to have bulging muscles like him, mom used to feed it to me but used to warn me not to expect such instantaneous results :) and spinach pizza is my favourite :)

I love spinach
I love palak paneer
I hate brocolli, cauliflower or cabbage. Or even brussel sprouts.
Nothing you could do with them, no amount of airbrushing can make a shilpa shetty into a sushmita sen. Even tho I am not a BIGGA fan of Pizza or chocolate (except that once a month craving) I could have Sush on my pizza or as a double scoop any day.
(OMG! I hope I am not coming out of any closet! That would be something. See the headlines. Mild manner home maker comes out of closet thanks to to brocolli and spinach! You can the sales soaring right there!!!) LMAO!!!

For all those who said 'Spinach & broccoli taste great anyways'... Thanks for making me feel so unhealthy !!

For all those who said 'Veggies can never be as good as chocolates'... I think we underestimate the power of advertising! :)

Clickable,

I love Spinach and hate pizza; I love chocolate and am indifferent to broccoli. Pizza adverts haven't been able to sway me, but that doesn't mean anything, they have completely won over my kids!

Radha said...

I dont particularly like pizzas myself, and I dont have kids...but the advertising works really well on H!!!
