Just wait until you guys figure out what Jello and marshmallows are.
"gelatin" sounds cool, but it's sort of disgusting. I haven't eaten Jello since I was a kid and discovered what it was.
That conversation went something like -
"Mom, I've been eating Jello forever. And I'm sitting here, with a bowl of it, and I'm asking myself, what in nature is clear and plastic-y like this?"
"Well, it's gelatin"
"But what is gelatin?"
"Horses' hooves. And cow hooves. And pig bones. And horse hide. They boil it down and you get gelatin. Jello is horse toenails"
eta: Ketsuko beat me to it by THIIIIIS much. Dagnabit.

Wait until you find out how they make jelly beans shiny.
Sugar, glucose syrup, modified cornstarch, dextrose, colours (anthocyanins, curcumin, natural colour pigments from apple, purple carrot and hibiscus; carotene, chlorophyll, safflower, spirulina, beet red, natural colour pigments from black carrot, black currant), acidity regulators (citric acid, malic acid), natural flavourings, lemon puree, banana puree, coconut, cherry juice concentrate, plum juice concentrate, glazing agents (shellac, beeswax, carnauba wax), strawberry juice concentrate, peach puree concentrate, orange juice concentrate, passion fruit juice concentrate, pineapple juice concentrate, pear juice concentrate
Not sure I see why people are being disgusted by this. You're not eating human hair, you're eating a purified chemical compound which has been extracted from human hair.
I suppose humanity would never have ventured into space if astronauts were quite as fussy about drinking purified H2O extracted from human urine.
Im in Australia so this doesn't apply here. Nothing against Asians many of their woman are cute.
what part of " hair dissolved in hydrochloric acid" do you people not understand?....you do know that almost all of our fruit and vegetables we eat, have had animal and bug feces on them. the ground that crops grow in, are a virtual toilet that has decomposed all sorts of rotten and disgusting things....geez, man up for god's sakes, the amount of disgusting things that you have had inside your mouth, is probably a lot worse than any type of "bread" that you have eaten.
