We still buy the "Angus Meat" by-productid hot dogs.
They're pre-cooked, can eat them out the package, with no cooking required.
Hankering to consume a few.
If I do not post in a week or so, contact Hannaford's Supermarket as to the disposal of my anaerobically ingested "meat" hotdogs.
Need a strong drink to down them, any reccomends?

Far be it from me to promote Woke corporations, but...

There's so much hubbub about how good or bad so many food items are that I stopped believing anything "journalists" have to say. It's been like this with eggs, with chocolate, with coffee, beer, and so many more articles, now including Coca-Cola – so-called "specialists" flip-flop hard and often about whether it's the new coming of divine ambrosia, or toxic evil in edible form.

I just consume what I enjoy, with moderation.

Can confirm that coke helps with nausea.
Just make sure it's got plenty of fizz in it and isn't flat.
Fizz... That's interesting.

But I remembered going to the corner pharmacy to buy coke syrup to soothe the stomach. There was no fizz. So I had to look it up.

What is the medicinal use of Coke syrup?

Cola syrup has traditionally been used to soothe the stomach. Edgar Cayce said "it will be found that the syrup of Coca Cola in plain water will be well for the body" (reading 5080-1). Interestingly, he most often suggested it for kidney and energy support.

Drug stores sold coca cola syrup for years. It's now just cola syrup. My mom used to give us a teaspoon of it with ginger ale to drink. That was when methiolade was what was used on scraped knees......

"Please mom, anything but that" man that stuff burned. I think it's banned now.

Our skinned knees and elbows got a swab of Mercurochrome....ouch!
I believe it was taken off the market when they found Mercury was producing 4 eyed frogs with extra legs
I believe methiolade was a brand of mecurochrome. I just remember the red dye of doom part. My dad used to say "methiolade is for sissys, real men use iodine". If I recall correct hydrogen peroxide was the next antiseptic and it wasn't so bad. One day it was neosporin. That stuff was a blessing. Phew!!

We had tough skin jeans so you'd get home and your pants were fine, but mom would have to peel them off of the knee scrape, then as if that wasn't enough agony, here comes the methiolade. Yikes! "Just kill me mom". lol
