Hmmm...don't they think that if pennies really are eventually phased out, the price of copper is going to plummet? With everyone melting down their pennies for scrap, the value is going to go down significantly.
(I don't know what this says about me, but every time I try to type "pennies" it comes out as "penises.")
I'm not sure what zero point yeast is, but I do know what NUTRITIONAL yeast is, and it is actually delicious! It's just a dried flaky powder that tastes ALOT like cheese, but is made from the same kind of yeast they use to make bread with. I am not kidding - it tastes JUST like Parmesan cheese! It's delicious sprinkled on popcorn. Even my HUSBAND - Mr "don't give me any of that hippie vegan food crap" - is now addicted to it. So it's not scary at all!
