Spinach Soufflé or Frozen Puke Brick?

Ah, yes, the 1970s: a golden era when vegetarianism was considered weird and dangerous, and veganism was nearly unheard of. The decade that saw the coining of that marvelous question: “where do you get your protein?”

And if you want to know why Americans were terrified of vegetables, look no further than the processed food of that era. Exhibit A: a Stouffer’s product that CopyRanter calls a “frozen puke brick.” Which, come to think of it, would also be a great name for a band or for a wireless network.

Stouffer’s actually had the balls to call this travesty a “soufflé.”

No wonder vegetarians of the 1970s had their work cut out for them.
