Sugar Babies, I Salute You!

I have a deep respect for Sugar Babies.

No seriously.

They are true to what they are. You don’t see them doing this:


I hate products that try and morph into whatever is the latest craze. And the latest craze seems to be organic. Who would have thought people would want to drink milk from cows that actually grazed and weren’t just stuck standing there pumped with anti-biotics and growth hormones?

It’s pretty simple really. It’s the “garbage in/garbage out” principle. I mean you don’t see the sperm donor clinic out rounding up the homeless alcoholic and mental patients to build up their sperm inventory! No; they want lying, backstabbing lawyers and politicians…

But everyone wants to jump on the organic bandwagon. I saw a sign the other day at the Pottery Barn store in the mall. They were advertising organic. I didn’t know you could eat the furniture. Has Willy Wonka expanded his business recently?

Apparently they’re talking about organic fabrics to make their linens and upholstery. I mean nobody wants to wash their hands from a towel that has been pumped with growth hormones. Sure, it’s economical to take a tiny washcloth and pump it up to a huge beach towel but it’s not what the people want!!!

I’m all for healthy organic things but no, I don’t necessarily trust the whole organic movement. There’s always a way to work the system. So while I’ll continue to eat healthy, I still say…

Sugar Babies…I salute you!

Hi VE,

You know it is anything to make a buck. They put "organic" on it and then they charge more. I have heard that there are ways to cheat the system too.

I agree with you Sugar Babies are great, they got chocolate, one of the necessary food groups. Hmmm.
And milk with the chocolate, does that mean we get growth hormones to boot. Oh yeah!

God bless.

PS...I do hope you do that meme, somehow it just is "one" that fits you. So how many toes do you have,
13?

Speaking of 13, this coming Friday is the 13th and we are hoping everyone does "ghost stories". Can let us know on my site or on Auntie's dog girl site. I got a funny feeling you have some good ones.

Uncivil said...

I used to be a sugar baby.....now they just call me sugar daddy!

Deb said...

Sugar Babies are the best! Stay away from the organic stuff: no pesticides, grown with organic fertilizers. This means you get bug poop and manure/e-coli-laden veggies. Eat a Twinkie instead (or a bag of Sugar Babies).

Beth said...

Sugar Bear is going organic?!
I’m shocked. A line has been crossed. Sugar Crisp is my favourite junk cereal.
(We’re always behind you here in Canada in terms of such product changes.)

Matt-Man said...

I too, was miffed about the name change to Golden Crisp. If there comes a day that SPAM goes organic and/or calls itself, Golden Ham-Like Loaf, I'll slit my wrists. Cheers VE!!

moooooog35 said...

I'm with you.

Who really gives a shit about the woman's needs?

Oh.

Organic.

I'm thinking of something different.

Jaime said...

sugar babies make my teeth hurt they're so sweet.

i have to confess that every time you wrote about something being "organic," i thought you said "orgasmic." i was very intrigued by the idea of orgasmic fabrics.

The Incredible Woody said...

Milk Duds rule!!

lime said...

oh man, i haven't had sugar babies in forever. now i am having a craving.

Sarah said...

I love to eat organic however I would be a lil suspicious to see an organic snickers. God I love snickers!

Bee said...

I stay away from anything with the word "babies" in the title.

Venom said...

Organic beef eats grass. Organic chicken eats bugs & grass. Organic vegies don't need fertilizer or weed killer. So why is it they are all significantly more expensive?

Jacki said...

Oh I LOVE Sugar Babies, and I really don't know why. They aren't the best tasting thing out there and they stick to my teeth. But there is just something about them.

VE said...

nursemyra - Oh I like chocolate too. Especially dripped...err, never mind!

mrsupole - The meme will be up on Monday. I do have some ghost stories but I already have the week full of posts. Alas, next time.

uncivil - Ha! Now that I believe!

deb - Bug poop on veggies? So THATs how vegans get protien!

beth - They probably didn't change it in Canada; they just did it here to fool people that it wasn't 99% sugar...

matt-man - organic Spam...Ha! You're killing me...good one.

moooooog35 - Ha! Slip of the tongue, eh? Oh wait, that wouldn't fit into your itinerary either...

jaime - Yes they are too sweet, but at least they're not trying to fool anybody. Substituting orgasmic for every one of these does bring on a different point of view to them, doesn't it?

incredible woody - They do...but they sure have a lame name. Face it, they're DUDS! How do you work with that?

lime - I hadn't had one for about 15 years and somebody gave me one recently. They wrap around your teeth like glue. They haven't changed a bit though.

sarah - Yeah...Snickers already lines themselves up to compete with the energy bars

bee - Ha! You don't like eating babies? And if it's organic and babies that means you get baby poop with it?

venom - Because we'll pay it. Why are there no healthy fast food places with a dollar menu?

jacki - I wouldn't seek them out either but they do have something about them if I were given some...

Chris Wood said...

Organic furniture to eat? The future looks ... odd.

VE said...

chris - Hey, if Willy Wonka can do it...so can Pottery Barn! Plus, you'll know your out of food when there's no place to sit down anymore...

Quirkyloon said...

Sugar babies are the best!

Wait is that the Jackson Five I see on that cereal box?

You think they are goint to invite Whacko Jacko back to endorse the Super Sugar Crisp?

I mean he did announce to the world that he's ready for his comeback.

And of course what Whacko wants, Whacko gets. Guess what he likes to "snack" on?

Sugar Babies!!

Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrgggghhhhh!!

Kanrei said...

I am eager for the organic organs. I was going to have a liver transplant, but when I learned the liver was not going to be "free range," I quickly said no! I have standards.


PS- My blog is dead for some reason. The text is gone from the main page. I am scared!

Brian Miller said...

lol. nice rant. the organic bandwagon has gotten out of hand. principle is good, the system is broke though.

Elizabeth said...

I remember loving them when I was a kid. I would get them for Halloween a lot. But I remember them being very sticky, I'm afraid if I ate them now it would pull out my fillings!

VE said...

kan - That's terrible news! What will the lemmings do without our fearless leader? Do you have a full backup anywhere? Yeah, me neither...I better go look into that. I hope it all comes back.

brian - Yeah, I don't mind it in principle but take exception for those that try and cash in on it

elizabeth - Yeah, they'll test your dental work for sure!

VE said...

quirky - How'd I miss you in my replies?! Wacko Jacko and sugar babies...you are cracking me up...

Kanrei said...

I can only assume Blogger is not enjoying the Stanley story. Everythign is still there, but you must click on the tags to see it. My front page is blank.

VE said...

kan - You are right! I don't see it on the front but can see it through the archives. I've seen this on a couple other blogs over time.

Giggle Pixie said...

I won't jump on the sellout bandwagon!

Well...maybe if they remarket an organic slinky...

Roy Scribner said...

It's really why I faithfully read your blog, VE. It's so full of organic matter...

Gladys said...

I was in Costco yesterday and noticed they had "organic tires" REALLY? Organic?

ReformingGeek said...

Ummmmm....organic chocolate. I have some in the drawer here at the gym.

I just wish "organic" would rid me of the zits I get from eating it.

Ha!

VE said...

giggle pixie - Good for you! Organic slinky huh? Try giving a snake some viagra...twist him around and you should have very slinky like spring action...

roy - That organic matter is great for composting! I'm just trying to be part of the solution...

gladys - There you go. I have to draw the line there. I didn't think there was really much natural anything on a tire anymore. It's not like they're pure rubber or something.

reforminggeek - So are they guarantee nothing occasionally gets into that vat of organic chocolate without them knowing it? Right...

Serena said...

I haven't seen Sugar Babies in I don't know how long. They were one of my favorites when I was a kid. If I could get them now, I wouldn't give a darn if they weren't organic.

Bonnie the Boss said...

I agree! Be what you are and don't try to fool us! We are not stupid! Okay, maybe we are..... people used to think cigarettes were good for you.
Thank-you sugar babies for keeping it real.

VE said...

serena - Yes, people make a choice in what they want to eat and we should stop trying to fool them!

bonnie - Yeah, we are stupid but we don't need trickery to accentuate the point

Mike said...

An organic chemical is one that has a carbon backbone in it's molecular structure.

So, anything that has, is, or ever was to come out of a plant or animal is organic.

Stupid, stupid fucking herd like brainwashed small minded easily bilked out of their money fanatical people.

They will be the savior of the economy ;)

HumorSmith said...

I agree VE. Everything/everyone just needs to be the best they/it can be, and leave it at that.

That's why you'll find me at the bar slamming martinis, or at home in front of the computer instead of doing something to "enhance" my slothful self. How many guys do you know who can hang upside down from a tree while holding on with three toes? You can't "improve" your way into something like that, baby!

Nessa said...

I love Sugar Babbies. They'll rip your teeth right out of your head.

VE said...

mike - Well that explains it...I'm not organic...I don't have a backbone!

humorsmith - Ha! You and I think alike (scary) because I have long advocated the sloth! In fact, wait for my Thu post...you'll see!

nessa - Damn straight they will. And they're proud of it...

Fundamental Jelly said...

If the powers that be ever decide to change the 'Sugar Babies' name, I vote for 'Type-Two Diababies.'

VE said...

fundamental jelly - Ha! What's the fun of that? Too much truth in advertising there!

Annie Ha said...

I just spent an hour catching up on your posts and laughed almost the whole time.

Janna said...

I hated it when they changed the cereal name to "Golden Crisp" instead of "Super Sugar Crisp."
I remember the whole do-gooder anti-sugar witch-hunt thing back in the late 70's/early 80's, when they started maligning sweet cereals. ("Some of them even have sugar in the NAME," they'd say, as if we were supposed to gasp in horror.)
I wanted to smack these people on the head with a jug of high-fructose corn syrup and shove a couple Twinkies into their holier-than-thou orifices.

Pardon me if I sound bitter.

I'll have to counteract the bitterness with something sweet...
Where's that pound of chocolate I bought the other day...

Megan said...

I got a plastic bag the other day that was printed with the information that it was 'green' -- and I almost lost it.

Fortunately, the Sugar Babies had glued my tongue to the roof of my mouth...

BlondeBlogger said...

Playing devil's advocate...I'm guessing "inorganic" lavendar would be lavendar grown with pesticides. Just a guess.

BlondeBlogger said...

By the way, this is like the 400th post to talk about food tonight as I'm sitting here trying not to eat. I'm having major insomnia hunger pains and the whole blogosphere is filled with food...tonight of all nights....gah! ;)

VE said...

megan - Ha! A green plastic bag? Was the color green? Was it envious? I don't get it either...

blonde blogger - Well I'm not sure if you technically can call Sugar Babies a food...

VE said...

annie ha - Wow, an hour? Could be a record... I personally don't have the focus to actually, huh, what was I talking about?

janna - You go girl! Don't mess with our sugar cereals. They're GRREAT!

Anne said...

you had me at "sugar"

VE said...

anne - Ha! Yes indeed. I'm sure those people that advocated for changing all these things probably have a whole junk food drawer of crap at home...

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I've never heard of sugar babies. Where've I been?

VE said...

perpetual - North Dakota? I don't think there's a big market for them there...

Maureen said...

Sugar Babies??? WTH are they? We don't allow frosted coatings on our youngins up here....

VE said...

maureen - What do they actually sell up there in Canada...snow?

Dee said...

I don't buy Organic, we have a piano.

VE said...

dee - Good one ;)

Carla said...

VE, Actually I did see something about marketing snow recently. Apparently it's going to be the newest craze in health drinks. And that is just crazy.

VE said...

carla - Snow? Really? Weird. What happens when you get hypothermia from doing it?

Count Sneaky said...

We are organic! There is nothing in the universe that is inorganic. Ok. Well, with the possible exception of blogs.
Count Sneaky

VE said...

Some of the people I see walking around the streets and on TV don't seem quite as organic as others...
