Btw - Grumpy: almost every advertising picture of ice cream is actually mashed potato.

Not true! (at least not often)

Mashed potatoes don't really have the right texture and sheen, so they never look quite right. Ice cream advertisements typically feature tasty looking scoops of vegetable shortening mixed with powdered sugar. YUM!

There are also photographers that use frosting mixed with powdered sugar (which, if you know what frosting is, isn't far from shortening mixed with sugar).

Wow, Americans even make their fake food overly sweet.

My sister used to work in advertising, her first photo shoot was for ice cream, she told me all about it in tedious detail, it was mashed potato. This aussie show about advertising also mentioned the mashed potato trick in a recent episode.

Grumpy_________I am not convinced that is spinach. I know there is a green that looks alot like spinach but is not.many specias of swiss chard ( and there are many!) look alot like spinach at the beginning.

I ate the spinach leaves and other non-gross bits of the salad, so I know it was spinach from the taste.

The most recent outbreak of E. Coli in spinach was back in September and it's over, so I'm fairly sure the notice was related to that and they haven't gotten around to updating the website.

Grumpy, I for one appreciate your sacrifice of one U.S. Dollar and your very health to research this side salad issue. The fact is, dollar menus are just a way to get people in the door. You aren't going to make any sort of real meal out of those menus -- not in terms of resulting fullness and definitely not in terms of nutritional quality.
