THE DORITO EFFECT The Surprising New Truth About Food and Flavor

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Chris Patton

Contemporary Culture • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

Narrator Chris Patton gives a persuasive performance in this detailed examination of the provenance, pervasiveness, and power of food flavorings. Patton’s narration is as irresistible as the man-made chemical flavorings that are reported to be taking over the taste of “real” food and to be the real cause of our nation’s obesity epidemic. Patton’s modulated voice smoothly delivers the scientific research, while his well-timed pauses highlight the stunning statistics on obesity and the paradoxes of our culture’s love-hate obsession with food. The author also discusses how food technology and marketing determine much of what we choose to eat and what we really taste. Patton’s straightforward narration will keep listeners intrigued and may make them think twice before reaching for another snack. M.F.
