I can’t avoid artificial sweeteners. I mentioned this before, but the “sneaking” of artificial sweeteners like sucralose and Ascesulfame Potassium is getting WAY out of hand. It’s freakin’ everywhere. In foods that are NOT “diet”. I just bought some Kool-Aid singles. I rarely have a need for more than just a single serving, so having a pitcher full of the stuff in the fridge would be pretty wasteful. So, here I am makin’ my cup of childhood-summer-in-a-glass. I take a peek at the ingredients. HOLY SUCKWADS. Sucralose and the ascesulfame K. Oh, but the first ingredient IS sugar. So, why the artificial crap??GRRRRRRRRR. What the f*ck. No where on the packaging does it indicate it’s low sugar or “diet”. I’m really, really convinced now that they’re trying to get us quietly addicted to the chemicals. Write your congressman now. We need proper labeling on this stuff. It needs to say on the front that the product contains artificial sweeteners!!
