The Food Alarms: Guaranteed to Make You Lose Weight or Go Insane While Trying

Folks.  It's getting ridiculous.  I can't keep myself from indulging in things I know I shouldn't eat.  In the morning, I'll eat a slice of wheat toast and a 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters and then finish off the entire buffet table at Golden Corral AND Ryan's Steakhouse in 30 minutes flat for lunch.  In the morning, I'm all about it and then a temptation crosses my path and I consume it like a lion who hasn't eaten in months.  So, that's why I came up with the idea for Food Alarms.  If this idea takes off, they'll be on ever Big Lots shelf across the land.  My heart is swelling with pride already at the thought.  Here's the scoop:


Here's how it works: there are 5 levels of food alarms.  These alarms are found in your pantry.  The refrigerated alarm system is still being developed in our fancy labs, so hang on tight for that one.  Each level of food has a different alarm on it that is more excruciating and annoying than the last.  The alarms are attached to large boxes where these different foods are kept.  Here are the five different boxes/alarms:


Alarm #1 will immediately sound when you dig around the box for a bag of chips or if you even just grab a chip or two.  Also kept in this box are crackers and Movie Theater Butter Popcorn.  Orville is NOT your friend.  He would love nothing more than for you to roll everywhere and become a human ball caught in a popcorn eating frenzy.


You will NOT want to choose applesauce, fruit roll-ups, diced peaches, fruit cocktail or anything like it over REAL fruit if you have to hear The Annoying Orange talking to you.  He's is so stinkin' annoying.  If you make it out with your staxh, The Annoying Orange will short-circuit and continue to talk throughout the day even when you aren't near Box #2.


THIS is an annoying sound, amirite?  Ugh!  Really, it's more than an irritating sound.  It's a reminder that your program has been interrupted!  Something as minor as a tornado or flash flood warning or terrible hurricane is interfering with your precious TV show!  That is why this particular sound gets linked to the box containing Coke, Dr. Pepper, Sprite or any sugary drink, juice boxes included!


Tell me you'd want to touch another cookie or  cupcake again after hearing Gilbert Gottfried's voice every time you went near one.  This one has got to be one of the best deterrents for stuffing your face like a ravenous T. Rex.


If I buy no other alarms but this one, it will have been a good investment.  If this blasted alarm kept going off in my ear, I'd stop wrapping my face around all of that Halloween candy- the Kit Kat bars, Whoppers and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  The problem is that the candy bars are the "fun size".  They're so little and cute.  It is hard to see the harm in just having ONE.  As we all know, one can quickly turn into two and before you know it you resemble King Kong after he's left a Chinese buffet. 

These would make perfect Christmas gifts!  You can even customize the annoying sounds.  Maybe your husband's snoring is worthy of a level 5?  The whole kit is only $19.95 and, if you act now, we'll throw in the ShamWow, Oxiclean, Showtime Rotisserie (Ron Popeil!) and a Tae Bo tape!!
