Chef’s Note: Granny Goodness, as you might guess from this scene, is not a very nice or good person. She is, in fact, the very embodiment of vicious cruelty-
Darkseid had Goodness run the training facility for his elite soldiers, where she used brainwashing and torture, in a brutal parody of child care, to turn the innocent into fanatical warriors willing to kill or die for Darkseid’s glory.
And we are shown this quite aptly here with her placing a plate of Jell-O, of all things, just within reach of a man she is starving to death. Might as well offer him a popsicle.
Although generally well tolerated, clear liquids do not provide adequate nutrients to patients. Generally, a clear liquid diet, including Jell-O, should not be followed long term to prevent inadequate nutrition. Jell-O is mainly sugar and gelatin and does not contain any health benefits.
Chef’s Note: Happy National Eat Your Jello Day!
