Hey sodium fans! Are you "jonesing" for your favorite element? Well, search no more! Here are the results of the poorly-promoted Sodium Contest, in which contestants were asked to find food products with the highest sodium content per serving and the highest total sodium content. I am awarding "Best of Show" to Temple Brand Salted Black Beans, for just about tripling the sodium content of the first runner-up and also your recommended maximum "Daily Value" of sodium (2400mg). I cracked open a can of this stuff, and the salt molecules actually reached up and started strangling me. Totally bizarre. I also found a recipe on the web that calls for salted black beans and a "bit of salt", presumably to get you up to that cherished 300% mark.
As far as total sodium content is concerned, it's HAM! HAM! HAM! But I think we all knew that.
