Must be a laughing day today. Got an email from Deseret Book that I am laughing over as well. It is an ad for several different books, but one, and only one, of them has something to say about it. "I read it one day! - Customer Review'"

That review could go in so many ways!

Sometimes I think it is a wonder the human race is still in existence.

The real question is how we are still in existence when so many people actually fall for these scams!

The ones I feel so bad for are the older women getting scammed by "romance scams".

This one today..

I hate the ones where they call up grandparents (family) and tell them their grandchild (relative) has been kidnapped and they must pay ransom now or else.

There are a number of family emergency ones, but the virtual kidnapping one is just pure evil.

The romance ones are despicable as well, but at least the victims are not in intense fear (usually).

This isn't the wording of an email, but my wife and I were laughing at the labeling that McCormick uses for their extract products (apparently it says this on more than just their butter extract). This special labeling must be necessary for the new generation of math impaired young people (or something??) (Note what it says at the top):

Duh!

I wouldnt be surprised if it is instead meant to give the impression there is twice as much flavour for those who dont read closely since the 2x more is much larger than the rest

I think you are right, and when my wife showed it to me it immediately reminded me of a MAD magazine book I had when I was a teenager:

Book079_e765583d-bca4-46df-bb95-76263f25

Some of the advertising tactics they lampooned in the book included things similar to the McCormick approach.

I had no idea they sold butter extract. What would you use it for??

Seems so weird to me. But then I'm not much of a cake baker. :D

Neither is my wife (normally), but she's been using Google to get recipes recently, and she made some really really good cupcakes for our ward's fall festival. I just wish I had discovered them sooner, as I was only able to get one of the cupcakes!

Icings and frostings primarily, I think. We sold it in our candy/cake section of the toy store I worked at for a bit (it was originally a cake/chocolate store and the only one in Utah Valley, so they kept some of that even though it was a toy store; it was a significant part of the stores revenue).

Added after reading other posts: I see its for cake as well. I guess it might add richness without the fat so the cake is lighter.

You can get an extract for so many things. I got one for brown sugar to make quick breads tastier using less sugar, pineapple extract in hopes of making a pineapple coconut bread and a marinade for chicken more pineapply (didnt really work), and the latest is hazelnut so my daughters splurges of Nutella ice cream drinks could be made without the hassle of Nutella. (Just chocolate milk mix and the extract now). She loves the taste and it is much easier and cleaner (Nutella was a pain to work with).

Olivenation is the usual brand we get.
