Sometimes I feel this way when I’m in convenience stores, everything is made to last FOREVER, and often it’s been on the shelf for that long.

When you think about the last hundred years, and our eating largely being shaped by companies wanting food to last: both to ship it, let it sit on shelves longer, and so people will buy more of it… and if you’re critical of our modern diet for it’s highly processed foods and lack of nutrition, a convenience store really is the epitome of that.
