Dreaming of donuts, cookies, candy bars, potato chips and soda, Matt and Maddie think their dreams are about to come true when their mom gives in to their wildest wishes. Finally, Matt and Maddie are granted entry into that alluring section of the supermarket their mom calls “The Wasteland.”
Bursting with excitement, Matt and Maddie eagerly pick out those forbidden foods they’ve been dreaming of and race to the check-out counter before their mom changes her mind.
Barely able to contain their enthusiasm on the ride home, Matt and Maddie can’t wait to launch a sugar-fueled feeding frenzy. But when the mountains of ooey gooey donuts are gone, Matt and Maddie will realize that their dreams are about to turn into nightmares—literally.
Matt and Maddie will soon find out that the phrase “you are what you eat” may be truer than they think.
