  • We don't have them back in our stores as of yet, I had one before they were sold out, but not really something I feed my kids on a regular basis, I am sure they are hoping I change my mind.

  • most likely the flavor they are trying to fake is vanilla


    Statistics on Imitation vs. Real Vanilla Extract


    Only 2 percent of the vanilla used in foods and fragrances is pure vanilla extract, meaning 98 percent is cheap, synthetic and chemically processed. Because it's become so cheap to produce, the new generation of imitations are a genuine threat to the growers of the real stuff.
