Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 24/01/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

The dangers of the vending machine diet

I know, I know, I should know better. But sometimes the whole morning starts off in a rush, and suddenly it's 10 o'clock and you haven't eaten anything, and you can't be bothered going out to be anything, so the vending machine upstairs seems like the only logical choice. This may not happen to you much, but it happens to me a lot.

When the 10 o'clock hunger pangs struck the other day, I veered from my usual standard feed of Coke and a Crunch, and succumbed instead to the dubious delights of a Nana Diver's Double Chocolate Chip Supa Chump. In doing so, I was basically regressing back to my uni days, when a standard lunch used to be a chicken burger and a giant chocolate chip cookie. I'm not going to claim this was the peak of gastronomic excellence or anything, but things have certainly gone downhill since then.

I have to be honest, this cookie reminded me of nothing so much as the dog biscuits I ate on a dare when I was nine. There's this fetid aftertaste you can't quite escape from, and you can hardly taste the chocolate. What a take. Next time, I'll just stick to the Crunch.
