Quote of the Day: "Doritos Are Not Bad For You."
That's Pepsico CEO Indra Nooyi on the Fox Business Channel. The Consumerist tells us that she is out in the back, cooking them up: at 13:00 she says Doritos are not bad for you. Pepsi Cola is not bad for you. Doritos are nothing more than corn mashed up, fried in a little bit, very little oil, and flavored in the most delectable way."
She also tells Fox Business that her Pepsi is not bad for you, since it was "discovered in a pharmacy for a stomach ailment." Now if she would only return to the original pharmacy recipe and put the cocaine back in.
You can watch the whole pandering "American Icon" show here. She does make the valid point that "any product consumed in excess is bad for you, any product, including Tropicana, including Quaker."
