First they came to bastardize the cappuccino

I’m not going to blame Julia for this, only Julie for alerting Big Food to the new potential for old French standards since the crazy success of the movie. But thanks to my favorite part of the Sunday papers — the coupons — I see Jell-O is now marketing “chocolate” “mousse.” And it looks just as scary as you might imagine, sort of like Cool Whip crossed with what a  coal miner coughs up after a hard day in the pit. Still, it could be worse. For all the discontent right now, we’ve come a long way in this country. Not so long ago they would have had to have sold it as Freedom Flan.
