That’s how they get you!

I try to avoid foods with high-fructose corn syrup in them, not because I’m a health nut (you should see the things I try to eat), but because I don’t want all of my food to have the same cloying, artificial taste of sugarized corn. I want my orange juice to taste like oranges, my granola bars like granola and my cilantro to taste like ass. (I don’t like cilantro.) This is why I get juice with no HFCS in it, jam made with real fruit, and prefer soda with nutritious cane sugar. So imagine my surprise when a friend of mine pointed out how Ralphs still sneaks HFCS into my diet. How? They add it to my bread. Children’s bread, Mandrake!
