Tuck student markets flesh-flavored tofu on website

According to Mark Nuckols Tu'06, humans do not taste anything like
chicken. The founder and CEO of Hufu, LLC -- the company that produces
hufu, a type of tofu that simulates the texture and flavor of human flesh
-- claims that his company's product "tastes like beef but a little softer in
texture and a little sweeter in taste."
"I have to admit that I myself have never sampled human flesh," Nuckols
said. "However, I've done quite a bit of research on the history and
anthropology of cannibalism and read enough accounts to have come up
with a fairly good approximation."
His product, which contains zero fat and 100 calories per ounce-sized
serving, was developed by a Dutch food processor and will be available
through his website, eathufu.com, which is set to launch Thursday. The
website, which ships internationally, will initially only offer Hufu Classic
Strips, which, according to Nuckols, "will basically resemble the choicer
flesh, which is upper arms, thighs and buttocks." Nuckols, however,
assures customers that plans have been made to develop Hufu Hearts
and Dr. Lector's Liver.
"For the cannibal gourmand, those are really the best parts," Nuckols said,
noting that a recipe for Dr. Lector's Liver and Fava Beans will also be
available on the website, along with several Aztec recipes and pieces of
literature about cannibals. Nuckols called the website, which will also
feature hufu t-shirts and aprons, "an entrée into thinking about cultural
practices of other people."
