“Mouse Print” Does Ham

I have just discovered the Mouse Print blog [link fixed], which is dedicated to 'exposing the strings and catches in advertising fine print.' In short, catnip for obsessively rational consumers such as I.

I particularly like the attempt to figure out how much ham you get when you buy one in the store. Who knew that there are such major distinctions between ”cooked ham”, “cooked ham with natural juices”, “cooked ham, water added”, not to mention the suspiciously labeled “cooked ham and water product — x% of weight is added ingredients” which apparently can be as little as 17% meat, plus fat and water.
