I was so happy they had lemonade on sale and the grocery. It was very cheap. I purchased some and brought it home. Had a glass along with a few ice cubes and it was good, but it wasn’t great. It was Minute Maid after all, a reputable company for lemonade.
So, I read the label. It said it was 100% pure and natural with no additives. I started reading and stopped when I got to the HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP. “WTF is with the HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP?” I screamed. “What is wrong with SUGAR?”
I had just finished freezing some in a ice cube tray as a cool and natural treat and just let them freeze. I had a few of those lemonade ice cubes. THEY DON’T TASTE THE SAME. They can never taste the same, it’s not sugar, it’s HFCS.
So, now I have added this to my list of crap to avoid. Try finding anything without HFCS in it. It’s in the grapefruit juice I USED TO LOVE, pink, it used to be so good. It’s in my favourite Campbell’s Soup (or should I say ex-favourite Campbell’s Soup), Tomato Soup.
I wonder if it’s in aspirin, vitamins, soap? I know it is in some breads, because the bread I purchase says it does not come with HFCS. It’s in ketchup, but not Hunt’s which is why I gave up Heinz.
Why do they call it HIGH? Does it get you high? Are they referring to your weight when you put enough of it into your body?
