Goghurt... lol

Some friends and I were just chatting about the "convenience" and "bulk" factors that attract food shoppers to major supermarket chains and Costcos and so forth versus the good-on-so-many-levels concept of buying locally and only enough food for a way or two. And then we got into how low cost for the consumer often equals even lower profits for the farmers, high profit for the middleman (processors, Walmarts, etc) and the highest cost for the planet. "For what?" we thought.

The answer (other than diabetes, high cholesterol and other western diseases) is: Crap like "goghurt."
