I didn't know that.
When we first moved to Atlanta, bout 5 years ago there was a news report of a Krystal's with reported employees having hepatitis.
Ever since then I've equated the two and steered clear.
I'll have to check Krystal burgers out.
If you eat out a lot, you should really get vaccinated for hepatitis A. Hep-A will really mess you up, and it's very contagious. Any pharmacy would be glad to give you the shot. You don't have to go to a doctor.

I used to love Celeste's frozen pizza in my youthful days.

Its refreshing to read a food thread where everyone isn't acting all superior by insisting they don't eat such lowly foods, and "only cook from scratch."

Here are a few of my favorite trashy foods:

- Filet-o-Fish - I get a craving 2-3 times per year
- Cocoa Krispies
- also love homemade rice krispy treats and add extra marshmallows and butter
- Newman's Own frozen pepperoni pizza

and last, my new addiction - Pistachio-flavored Thin Oreos - the mint are very good too. - they are so thin and crispy. I actually hate regular Oreos... but the thin ones....are so good

I don't eat anything I listed (if I remember correctly) anymore, I would if I could, but old trumps treats.

We actually made a modest version of The Garbage Plate (up-thread?) yesterday, with seasoned fries, leftover chicken, taco meat, and plenty of cheese. This is worthy of a repeat, it was that good.

Also...a baloney and cheese sandwich. That, on the other hand, will hold us for another, oh, two years.

My usual reply: "I've heard a lot about this 'scratch' stuff people use to make food. Is it a powder or a liquid?"

Regarding Rice-Krispie Treats mentioned a page or two back, I recall the lunch ladies at school used to make a version of these using peanut butter that were quite good. They weren't messy to eat like the 'all-butter' versions, so I assume they were also less messy to produce. This was back when the US government used to buy surplus commodities like cheese, peanut butter, etc. to help keep the commodities markets stable ("gub-mint cheese"), then disperse them to the needy...or donate them to schools and such institutions for them to "get creative".

There is a version called Scotcharoos - where you mix peanut butter and corn syrup together with the rice krispies... and then on top of that, you spread melted butterscotch and chocolate chips. They are yummy!

I worked in a hospital that received a great number of the commodity foods. Some were quite excellent; some were barely edible. However, if you received them as an institution, you had to use them up. You could not sell them or give them away.

In order to use these products, you would have to develop recipes that could make up for the deficiencies of the products. Some of the lunch ladies and cooks were very creative.
