I came across this website while googling "fruit syrup" and thought you might like it.  Marketing at its *finest*.

Sad how well they can market, eh? And people will listen to anything!

Oh wow! We used to buy those Gerber things, that is just crazy. Isn't that false advertising?

You have been posting the best stuff about food!! Thanks for this. I've been trying to educate my hubby about these things!

I sent him to buy whole grain bread and he came home with bread that said, "made with whole grains" which, of course, means it's mostly bleached white flour "with" some whole grains added in as a technicality.

It really makes me angry that they can get away with this. There should be stricter laws about labelling!!

Thanks!  The more I read, the more I'm trying to make most everything at home where at least I know what ingredients are going into my food.  Bread is the latest thing I've been making at home; I have a bread machine, I may as well use it!
