Addiction Story #18, Marigold: Nabisco in My Rearview Mirror

I take in signs and symbols. And on my drive home after donating blood in Paramus— after resisting the de rigueur Oreo snack packs at the canteen— I passed the old Nabisco plant on Route 208. That is not my normal route, but that’s how Google Maps sent me. Change is in the air. This is #18 in my series of flower-titled stories about sugar and overeating addiction.

The Fair Lawn, New Jersey plant (now owned by Mondelez) where Oreos and other Nabs have been baked since 1958 will shut down this year. CBS New York news link here.
