I have received so many e-mails about Duncan Hines’ recent decision to become dairy that I’m more than a little disappointed. Is this what it takes to get us outraged? Our favorite dessert becoming unavailable after a Shabbos meal? So eat a different cake or don’t have any dessert at all!!!
Come on, people. There are Jews being expelled from their homes (for good or bad reasons, depending on one’s perspective) and we’re kvetching about cake mix becoming dairy?
(And about cake mix, this article adds an interesting perspective about it. In particular, I found this quote amusing:
With added eggs and creative frosting, says Shapiro, cake mixes “still taste like a chemical plant, but it feels like you’re doing something in the kitchen.”
