its culture, it’s mysteries, its history, quotes and the list goes on.

It’s frowned upon by friends, neighbors, my students,

I’ve got to say this was hard for me being the average

American who grew up with this.

We heard about it on TV, we saw it on billboards,

famous people in the movies had these in their hands and


nobody ever thought a second thought about it.

It had become a staple in our diets.

We fell in love with this product young and old,

it just didn’t seem to matter.

So what is it? Have you guessed?
