The Nutraloaf is very real and horrifying
Along with sending the neo-Nazis from Oz to terrorize you, prisons have another disciplinary horror at their disposal: Nutraloaf. It was once described by Chicago Magazine food critic Jeff Ruby as "a thick orange lump of spite with the density and taste of a dumbbell, [that] could only be the object of Beelzebub’s culinary desires", so it's got that going for it, which is nice.
Basically the Nutraloaf is an unseasoned brick of things like carrots, cabbage, beans, and tomato paste. Get rowdy, and you could be fed this monstrosity for days. Prisoners have tried to get the Nutraloaf branded cruel and unusual punishment, but an appellate court in Illinois shot them down, writing that the Eighth Amendment does not provide for "tasty or aesthetically pleasing" foods. Watch some Glens Falls Post-Star staffers sample the stuff above, and then never so much as jaywalk ever again.
