    Really … canned spinach. What a shameful thing to do to spinach. Just the color. Homolka.

    I also think canned spinach is nasty. It’s ok on lead form though

    Just like me when I first had spinach. It tastes better raw or in a dip(Spinach and artichoke dip, a popular appetizer nowadays).

    Early in the 20th century a food researcher on the nutritional value of different foods entered a decimal in the wrong place for spinach – making it appear to have 10x its actual iron content. BOOM it was declared a super food (or it would have been if the term super food had been invented yet). It entered popular culture through Popeye (and grateful spinach growers erected a statue to him).

    The error was discovered and corrected years later, but remains alive in popular culture. My mother remained a true believer and I had to endure a lot of spinach growing up. Thankfully, not the canned version.

    Uh Kevin, maybe next time you should actually cook the spinach and chew it instead of guzzling it all down like Popeye.

    All that iron may have the opposite effect…

    Oxalates can give you kidney stones. Spinach is one of the worst for concentrations. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

    Popeye could fool the parents, but not (most of) the kids. Yuck.

    canned? yuck. My wife , when ordering a sandwich at delis, would replace lettuce with raw baby spinach leaves. She loved it.

    From an article by John Masko in The Wall Street Journal: The firm Dandelion Chocolate provided the warning required by California regulators announcing that their product might contain cadmium, and then added:

    “Cadmium is a naturally-occurring component in soil, and many plants take it up as they absorb nutrients, which is how it gets into our cocoa beans. According to the CDC, cadmium is commonly found in vegetables, and in relatively high concentrations in leafy greens like spinach. The law won’t allow us to say much more about how the tiny trace amounts in our product will affect your health, but if you want to reduce your exposure to cadmium generally, you might consider eating fewer leafy greens.”

    Hang in there, Kevin. Maybe there’s radioactive spiders in with that spinach.

    Everyone is focussing on the spinach. I believe the real issue here is that siblings do not care how you feel if it is affecting them.

    Barfing into the toilet isn’t “hogging,” Krystal. Even if it’s his own fault. You can’t keep stuff from coming up. Believe me, I’ve tried.

    I love spinach, and yes, even canned spinach, but I’d retch too if I dropped a whole can into my mouth …….. to say nothing about eating it at room temperature …yuck!

    I used to like the way my mother would add bacon and scramble an egg in canned spinach, but now I cannot stomach it. Instead I buy 3 18oz containers of fresh spinach a week instead.
