This ad makes me want to vomit. Seriously. Actually, go to www.sweetsurprise.com and click on the "Party" commercial. Or "Two Bites". They're even more gag-inducing. There is NO defending high fructose corn syrup. Read this, this or Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma. Isn't it funny that America's obesity epidemic coincided EXACTLY with the introduction of High Fructose Corn Syrup?
I'm not on my high horse here. I eat mostly crap (my diet consists of donuts and Nutella), but at least I acknowledge the fact that it's bad for me.
"Okay in moderation"? That's what people say about cigarettes, but we aren't handing those out to babies, are we? Fuck you, Corn Refiners Association.
