Nutraloaf Clean Up On Aisle Nine!

March 22.2008 at 3:44 pm 4 comments

the ingredients of nutraloaf sound harmless enough but it’s apparently quite the opposite, according to vermont inmates. nutraloaf, which contains cubed whole-wheat bread, non-dairy cheese, raw carrots, spinach, seedless raisins, beans, vegetable oil, tomato paste, powdered milk and dehydrated potato flakes, seems to serve as a deterrent toward poor inmate behavior. it might work too well. a class action suit is being brought to the vermont supreme court in protest that it’s punishment rather than food. to think that inmates might actually be getting punished in prison and with something that could have been sold out of whole foods, no doubt, is remarkable.

    Yep, I’m pretty broken up about that. Poor little inmates.

    I can’t work out which piece in this is the funniest. I think the idea of a prison being sued for something I would expect to be standard practice for, say, a misbehaving child (assuming your child used a spoon to throw their own shit at you while trying to stab your other child with a fork), might win out.

    Also the idea that, in prison, punishment is a /bad/ thing. That, too, is bloody funny. Man, I’d give them tuna, fruit, vegetables and weet-bix for 20 years. They’ll come out healthy enough to live 50 years with nutraloaf.

    I wonder what it tastes like? I’m guessing a bit dry and relatively non-flavourful, but it doesn’t sound all that bad.

    When will people realize that all vegetable oils should be avoided?
