An Unintended Commercial

Foodgoat and I saw a news segment on the Center for Science in the Public Interest's recent push to get nutritional information into restaurant menus as they are on food packages, charging that "many restaurants are transmogrifying these foods into ever-more harmful new creations."
They may want to reconsider their approach, though, because they trotted out Pizzeria Uno's (now inexplicably rebranded as Uno Chicago Grill’s) Pizza Skins as one of the disgustingly calorie-laden, fat-filled restaurant dishes that supposedly would send diners screaming in horror to their yoga instructors if they only knew it packed 2,050 calories.

Foodgoat and I, however, instead squealed with delight, woefully lamenting the absence of Pizzeria Uno in Cleveland, and reminiscing about the tastiness that was the deep dish crust, with mozzarella and red mashed potatoes, topped off with bacon, Cheddar and sour cream. Somehow I don't think that was the reaction they were aiming for.
