Umami!


I just wanted to go on record here and say that I love MSG and MSG-flavored Chinese food. Chinese food without it is supposedly healthier (though no proof of MSG-related illness exists beyond anecdotal evidence), but tastes way crappier to me. I'm glad to see MSG is making a comeback and is now associated with the fifth taste, Umami, which just might be my favorite of the tastes. Hell, I might even pick up some Ac'cent later!

Maybe you can use it on your 'fourth meal', which quite frankly is the most awesome advertising campaign in history. Can you imagine the high-fives and dollar signs that flashed around the board meeting when some young buck ad exec came up with that? I mean c'mon, they're doing nothing less than trying to convince us that there's a new meal...genius. Sell my drunken/stoned late-night binging to me as a 'square-meal'.
