The 2005 Crappys!

Speaking of disappointing food snacks, it's past time for the 2005 Crappys.

The Crappys (or, to call them by their proper name, the Ludic Syndicate Moronic Food Product of the Year Awards) , if you are a devoted Ludic Log reader, is the annual awards ceremony where I buy, eat, and write about the most disgusting, pointless, wasteful, harmful, or demented grocery items I have encountered over the course of a year. The winner recieves the coveted Golden Crap Shack Award and my eternal enmity.

Past Crappys, should you wish to familiarize yourself with this wonderful and heart-warming annual tradition, have been awarded to Ruffles 3-D potato chips, the food snack that with width, height and depth; Oscar Mayer Lunchables Brand Lunch Combinations: Soft Pizza Stix Mega Pack, with over a pound of indigestible food to give your kid a head start on diabetes and cancer; and Chersi Brand Bread Kvass Soda, which satisfies your craving for yeast-flavored cola.

The past couple of years, I've tried to follow a theme; 2003 featured a focus on food targeted at children, and last year was a triple bonus theme year, featuring foods of eastern Europe, a pair of guest tasters, and for the first time, photographs of the process. So, this year, another first: I'm opening up the Crappys to audience participation!

What would you like to see in the Crappys this year? Would you like to see guest tasters, perhaps my innocent girlfriend and her child pressed into the service of this perverse pseudo-gag? Would you like to see more photos? Would you like a focus on groceries of another region of the world, or a particular sort of foodstuff (sweets, convenience foods, packaged meals, etc.)? Do you have a shitty, bad-tasting, wasteful or pointless new grocery item you'd like to nominate for consideration?

Drop in a comment and let me know; the Crappys will appear sometime in the middle of next week.
