Lunch My Way...It's A New Day

Recently eaten: carnitas burrito mexicano (black beans), cupcake (no icing)
Recent annoyance: the start of mosquito season

After years of persecution for my unique eating habits, corporations have caught on to meal amalgamation. From the hot pocket to the giant turkey leg, some of us are tired of the 5 forks and 3 knives they set on the table. I want to EAT! Unfettered, undistracted, and the way God intended, with my hands, and razor sharp teeth. Heinz and KFC, both with undeniably large shares of the food market, have come up with two such food options. What sounds like a baked bean burrito, and the garbage bowl from KFC. Finally, I can binge again!

Heinz Toasts New Product
FOR those who find baked beans on toast just too messy to put together, help is on the way.
Heinz has devised a frozen baked bean sandwich which simply needs to be heated in a toaster.

Heinz chief Bill Johnson said the company needed to give people "new ways to use beans".

"If people take the time to cook beans and put it on toast, why shouldn't we cut the process for them and give them beans on toast?" he said.

The technology is being developed by Heinz researchers in New Zealand.

KFC Famous Bowls
"KFC's new Famous Bowls, a departure from the restaurant's popular family style bucket, provides lunch-starved Americans with the perfect all-in-one, "made for one" remedy to their usual rushed and unsatisfying lunchtime routine. The new KFC Famous Bowls(TM) offer a hearty meal "just like mom used to make," with layers of mashed potatoes, sweet corn and bite sized crispy chicken, drizzled with signature home style gravy and topped off with a three- cheese blend -- in one convenient bowl.

"People love the famous flavors of KFC," says Scott Bergren, executive vice president of marketing for KFC. "But we know our products are better for lunch when they're portable! Now, for the first time ever, you get the most famous of our flavors -- in layers -- in our new KFC Famous Bowls!"
