Ultimate Additive

You know you want this

This is a shaker of fat, salt, sugar and yeast.

Every tasty food worldwide has many of these ingredients. And every time someone improves on any of those foods they add an ingredient from the combination above.

Many humans don't want to admit this is true even though the later addition of these ingredients makes the dish more popular. The fat comes from a combination of milkfat and vegetable fat and the sugar is the ever popular sucrose.

The Ultimate Additive comes in two forms, with or without MSG, because as much as humans say they hate MSG the most, they are more likely to love food with this added as well.

       So that's what they shake on those fries Maccy D's

       Ah, but condiments in shakers are usually applied before eating, whereas your mixture is usually applied before cooking.
DrCurry, Nov 06 2003

       No, this can be applied either way. Try it on fries and see.

       Could I take this intravenously and cut out those annoying vegetables altogether?
Fishrat, Nov 07 2003

       But you admit it tasted good, human? :)   

       BTW you can find MSG as meat tenderizer.   

       Oh for Pete's sake, Fishrat. Eat your damn vegetables. :)

       Stir in a table-spoon of Marmite - now you're cookin'! (+)

       MSG is my favorite flavor.
Worldgineer, Nov 07 2003

       I wish I could give this more than one '+' ... I have to agree with Worldgineer, MSG is my favorite flavor, too..

       dobtabulous, marmite is basically yeast and salt. On the back of the package it says, 'try with cheese.' I say add MSG.

       I have a t shirt bearing the legend 'monosodium glutamate'. Such is my appreciation.

       Is this Atkins friendly?

       Sucralose does not taste better than sucrose!

       [Treon], we don't "feel the surface of salt grains". We taste the dissolved salt. Read some of the annotations to your "fake salt" idea.   

       [sartep], this idea makes me nauseous. [+]

       I thought this was going to be about Ultimate Frisbee.
