I held off writing about this because I couldn’t even look at photos of the stuff that gave me food poisoning and kept me in bed and feeling miserable for two days, but the embargo is finally lifted. Here’s the culprit behind a nasty bout of food poisoning back in January: 7 Days Bake Rolls.
The company that makes these things stuffs them full of chemicals and preservatives and flavors to make the taste hard to resist. I ate about three quarters of a bag one evening, as we were watching a movie. Then, during the night and early morning, the “fun” began. A general feeling of malaise grew until I hugged the porcelain throne and went through several private and painful “confessions” that purged the “sins” out of me. I was weak, could barely get out of bed, and if I ate anything I only hurled more. Even though I could move around and eat smaller portions for the rest of the week, I was still sick and couldn’t do what I needed.
I don’t know what in the world they put in those things, whether it was a bad batch, or whether I’d have the same reaction if I ate any more, but I do know one thing. I never want to see or touch them or smell them again. It’ll turn my stomach inside out. It’s one bad product, which exemplifies what I wrote recently about packaged foods versus fresh foods. The next time I want some toasted bread, I’ll make it myself, without preservatives and other artificial crap.
