Christ Died for Our Dunkin Donuts

 photo P1020481_zpsxhc6awed.jpg
A couple of older ladies stopped me in the park (i was taking the puppy to the softball game) to talk to me about their business selling instant coffee as part of some kind of pyramid scheme, and also Jesus. It was a very disorganized approach, but the ladies were lovely and polite so I talked with them for a while. They were impressed when I recognized Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi mushroom) on the label of the coffee mix. I was happy to take some samples from them and give them my email address in case they wanted to +/- get me involved in their coffee scheme/save my immortal soul.

The coffee mix is almost unbearably sweet, but would make a nice starter for ice coffee, or even homemade coffee ice cream. Ganoderma lucidum mushroom is the last ingredient listed on the package, right after “coffee.”

What would be the motivation to add reishi mushroom to coffee??

Dunno. Juice it up with mushroom magic. I have a reishi tincture that I take, too. Supposed to be good for diabetes, high blood pressure, what ails you. You could google it but the avalanche of woo woo would knock you over.

OMG, the phrase, "avalanche of woo woo" just made me laugh.

Given that the first ingredient is sugar, I'm guessing this is not a product to treat diabetes. It sounds awful!

Ah here see the ganoderma is the whole point--the coffee is a delivery system: http://www.organogold.com/about-us/

Re: This stuff is still around???
It has to still be around, they clearly haven't achieved market saturation if I'd never heard of it before!
