Default M&M fed beef.

It seems that the rising price of corn is forcing cattle farmers to use cheaper alternatives namely M&M's and potato chips.

More friggin byproducts and more reason to eat grass-fed meats.

I'm sure there will be many for whom this doesn't even matter!

hmmm chocolate beef.....This whole thing reminds of something they have in the Philippines called "chocolate meat", also called dinuguan in the dialect. Basically it is blood stew constructed of various animal parts, mostly pig. The parts, blood and seasonings are all mixed together and then stewed. I've always screwed up my nose at this stuff but next time my wife drags me to the Phil fast food joint again I may try it!

In the US, we call this sausage. Or hot hogs. Or scrapple.

As or m&ms and chips, the cows get to eat the same good stuff every 10-year-old wants. It's the latest in humane farming.

I can imagine how the advertising campaign will go.....
