It’s finally here – the first hamburger  grown in a laboratory.  Doesn’t sound too appetizing – what do you think?   McDonald’s tried a supposedly healthier McLean Deluxe in 1996  and it didn’t go over very well.  This one contained carrageenan (derived from a seaweed) and now its fate is considered  to be one of the all-time flops in the fast food industry.    GMO ingredients,  Frankenfish and now this.  What is next?  Consumers as usual will decide.
