This article on the Freep website, which details a new food offering inside Michigan Stadium at home games this season: a pretzel in the shape of a block 'M' for $10. Mmmmm...

Hand-molded by artisans who ground the flour themselves using only the finest Renaissance-era millstones, baked in a stone hearth, then drizzled in organic butter and dipped on small-batch sea salt from a historic saltery on the Mediterranean coast that's been producing salt since the 4th century.

"What is a GMO?

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.

Most GMOs have been engineered to withstand the direct application of herbicide and/or to produce an insecticide. However, new technologies are now being used to artificially develop other traits in plants, such as a resistance to browning in apples, and to create new organisms using synthetic biology. Despite biotech industry promises, there is no evidence that any of the GMOs currently on the market offer increased yield, drought tolerance, enhanced nutrition, or any other consumer benefit."

The nice thing about the $10 pretzel is that it's going to make you thirsty, costing you another $10 for a soda. (Is that what it costs now? I have no idea. I haven't been to any game of any kind for years. Except little league baseball, and I can get a pretzel and a coke there for $2, total.)

Please tell me they offer it with Blue food coloring & a cheese dip that happens to be Maize in color.

(I'd have said mustard, which would also work... but yuck!  i hate mustard!)
