Real Food? What was it before??

September 10, 2009

Starbucks Napkin:
REAL FOOD.
SIMPLY DELICIOUS.
We’ve got good news. We removed the artificial trans fats, artificial flavors, artificial dyes and high fructose corn syrup. Now your food not only tastes better, it is better. We hope you enjoy the difference.

Really? Artificial flavors? You mean that pump of vanilla wasn’t vanilla? It was HFCS? So NOW what is it??

And was that in my egg muffin, too?

Oh and thanks for telling us 10 years later that we’ve been drinking crap the whole time.

Ok, I think it’s no surprise that we’ve known pumps syrup and shots of sugar in our coffee is bad for us. But, somehow, without it spelled out, we didn’t seem to think it was a big deal. Like choosing whole milk over skim. Not the same as choosing fake over real. First of all, it doesn’t taste better, and second of all, ITS NOT MILK!!

Perhaps its just offending to be told, “we fooled you! But it’s ok now.” Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice…

    Ick! Eating at restaurants just isn’t what it used to be. All that processed food… Eating out seems to have gone the way of air travel.
