Waltz Tango Foxtrot!
Let me first disclose that I prefer Mrs. Butterworth's syrup. But the large economy size wasn't on the shelf. Don't judge me for buying a big jug of empty calories! Okay, whatever, judge me. I have lots of French toast in the house, so I have fully rationalized this purchase. I was beguiled by the NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP banner on the label. It really was not necessary to shout.
Fast forward to this morning. When I bothered to turn the jug around and read the ingredients. WTF! The first one listed is corn syrup! Mind you, it isn't high fructose, but isn't that really just a technicality? Somebody should be keeping an eye on this high fructose. It's likely hoarding gallons of this stuff and dousing Twinkies with it. Between bags of Doritos. You have been warned.
