Some of the things that make me feel old are the changes in food technology.

Modern pretzels aren't twisted anymore. They're stamped out in an two dimensional approximation of their classical 3-D shape.

Ginger snaps are also stamped out. Their surface cracks are now part of a design pressed into them during manufacturing.

Hershey bars with Almonds now seem to contain mere bits of almonds, rather than whole almonds like they used to. (My father will spin in his grave!)

The list goes on and on.

Stuffed olives are the latest casualty in the race to culinary "perfection". It used to be that stuffed olives contained a folded bit of an actual pimento. No more. Those have been replaced by a little capsule-shaped plug made from guar gum and pimento.

I first noticed it a few weeks ago. My "jalapeno stuffed" olives were stuffed with something resembling a green seedless grape.

What is this world coming to?
