popin’ cookin’

I’ve discovered something new and it’s called Popin (one P and no G) Cookin.

That’s right, Popin Cookin.

It’s an absolutely hideous fad which young girls are apparently into. Jo was introduced to it by her friends and she was given a pack to bring home.

Essentially it’s powered food. OK those two words make it sound a lot better than what it is because it ain't food. It’s chemical compounds in packets which are to be mixed with water and popped into a microwave, to simulate not only candies but also pizza, sushi and ramen! It's meant to be eaten!

URGH!

This brings to mind the worst future shock scenarios I’ve encountered in novels where people sustain themselves on powdered nutrients, only in this case I doubt its even nutritious.

Jo and her friends made Popin Cookin pizza. The (eeew) result:

Thankfully, she ate one tiny chunk (one quarter of the yellow square at the bottom) and silently told herself never again. She said it tasted “kinda floury”.

HER FRIENDS ACTUALLY ATE THE REST.
