Did you ever notice how many “instant” versions we have of foods that are already quick and easy in their regular form? These “instant” versions may be superfluous:

– Frozen Waffles

– Gas fireplaces

– Instant coffee

– Instant oatmeal

– Instant potatoes

– Instant pudding

– Instant tea

– Microwave bacon

– Microwave brats

– Microwave popcorn

– Premade cookie dough

The savings in time that these “instants” offer do not begin to pay for the taste, quality, and character they swindle.
