I just bought some Great Value (Walmart brand) Chocolate syrup the other day. Went to make some chocolate milk and happened to read the back and this is what it said....

Allergy Warning: May contain traces of milk, eggs, anchovies, peanuts, wheat, and soy.

What?! Anchovies???!!!! In my chocolate syrup? WTH! Oh and the key word phrase is "May contain"...huh? Like they don't know if it's in there or not?! Wierd. Anyway...just thought I'd share.

Ew. But I think they put it there because it is made in the same factory as anchovies, peanuts..ect. They put it on there to ctb (cover their butt)

They just put it on there because the factory they use to make it also processes anchovies in some way. They are just ruling out a law suit. It is funny though, I had something out last night and it said the same thing and it made me snicker

I'm pretty sure they put that on there because it was processed in a place that processes those other things. Just in case people have allergies.

Not Chocolate, that's for sure!  Most often it's a bunch of un-natural flavorings....I stick with cocoa powder, at least I know it's real.

How`s my pregnancy doing?

 made in the same factory as walmart brand everything. There is probably way more but none that pose a threat. Do you know that factory's are aloud to have 2% other stuff in it like, rat parts, bugs, body parts? Yeah. Because of the rats crawling around the machines and bugs. They are aloud 2%. Gross huh?
