I like Planter’s peanuts. They’re good. And as I sit here at my desk writing this post, I can see that the folks at Planter’s are concerned about my health. I know this because of what I see written on the can inside a big, bright, red heart.
A Handful A Day May Be Good For Your Heart
Really?!?! Tell me more! And they do. In the smallish print located under the heart, the good people at Planter’s supply a bit more information.
Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of nuts, such as peanuts, almonds, pistachios, pecans & hazelnuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat & cholesterol & not resulting in increased calorie intake may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Thank you Planter’s. Thank you for informing me that your peanuts may or may not be good for me. Thank you for telling me that they may or may not be bad for me, too.
Come on people! Do you really think that we’re that stupid? That you can put a picture of a heart on a product and tell us that it may be good for us, and then we’ll run out and buy it?
Why not just write, Peanuts may give you superhuman powers?
Or maybe we are that stupid. Just ask Pecadillo. He thinks we are.
