Kobe Beef

You know that delicious Kobe beef we all fork over big bucks for because it's just so damn good? Turns out, it's not even Kobe beef. Larry Olmsted at Forbes calls it food's biggest lie. He says you can't even get Japanese beef in this country, and we're just eating “Faux-be” beef.

I would have to agree that the slide shows are a pain to load.  

I am not really shocked by the fake foods though, although I have never heard of Kobe beef.

Yikes.. Im not a fan of fake foods or fake information about my foods. I think maybe its time to crack down on laws that make it so people arent allowed to write false info about food on their boxes/packaging.
