Well I heard rumors the corn industry was going to fight back, but I never imagined it would be quite like this. With all the bad media around High Fructose Corn Syrup it was only a matter of time before people would wise up and avoid the stuff. Check out the ads from sweet surprise dot com. Who knows maybe you've already seen one of these on TV by now.
You know what they say about it? This is what they say about it. It's made from corn. Well this is true, but lets get real here for a moment. Industrialized corn funneled and processed down to High Fructose Corn Syrup and it isn't all that natural. Fruit sugar is still sugar, and to have them compare HFCS to regular sugar is certainly fair, but isn't that setting the standard pretty low?
Also lets think for a minute about all this "natural" food we keep hearing about. I see it on food labels all the time. Natural doesn't mean anything anymore. A cheeto can be natural, processed meats like bacon and sausage can be natural, but could anyone really argue that just because it's labeled natural it really is. Last I checked cheetos don't grow in the ground, you can't hunt them and aren't an animal byproduct. As far as I'm concerned that is what is natural.
I think these commercials are further going to confuse the public and give them the rationalization they need to continue their crappy eating.
