cake balls are gross

I heard some chatter about these things called Cake Balls on the radio, so I googled it. I am so disgusted! Basically, one bakes a cake-mix cake and then crumbles it and mixes it with a can of frosting; then one forms cake-frosting balls and dips the whole thing in some other monstrosity, like white-chocolate confection (pre-fab goo mixed with high-fructose corn syrup dipped in plastic). The only thing MORE disturbing than this recipe is the fact that Kellog's Pop Tarts just opened a cafe-museum in NYC, where their concoctions will be sold to eager eaters from the around the world. THIS is what represents American food. What a shame.
