“Try Organic Food…or as your grandparents called it, ‘food‘“

"Try Organic Food...or as your grandparents called it, ‘food’” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts, bags and posters. “Try Organic Food...or as your grandparents called it, ‘Food’” has been cited in print since at least 2009, when the saying was included in the book Give the Bitch Her Chocolate, by Ed Polish and Darren Wotz. “Eat Organic Food” replaces “Try Organic Food” in some versions.

Does a better argument exist for the benefits of local produce? It reminds me of a magnet on my girlfriend’s fridge that reads: “Try Organic Food! Or As Your Grandparents Called It…Food!”

ANDERSON — There was this great magnet that I saw in a store in Myrtle Beach. It read: “Eat Organic Food. Or, as your grandparents called it, food.”

Recently, I came across some signage that said “Eat Organic Food, or as your grandparents called it, Food.”
