Just a brief word on a delectable product mistakenly named Special K cereal bars Strawberry. There is a picture of strawberries on the box. The bar smells like sweet strawberries. The product even has red specks in it. But at a second glance, the pieces are darker and chewier than your average dried strawberry. Why…they seem more like Craisins. I turn over the wrapper to investigate. Lo! The ingredients listed:
STRAWBERRY FLAVORED FRUIT PIECES (SUGAR, CRANBERRIES, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL STRAWBERRY FLAVOR WITH OTHER NATURAL FLAVORS, ELDERBERRY JUICE CONCENTRATE FOR COLOR, SUNFLOWER OIL)
What is this? WWII? Give me my real strawberries! Sugar them, bake them to a crisp, then put the candy into an overly sweet cookie and call it health food! Don’t lie to me about the ingredients. Just lie to me about what they’ll do for my body!
Wonder what the blueberry bars are made of…
