Your food is a lie

Your Food is a Lie

This list (and the above video) might change the way you look at some of your most favorite food ...

1) Froot Loops all taste the same despite the color.

2) Cup of Noodles are mostly empty inside!

3) Cap'n Crunch isn't a Captain! Captains have 4 stripes on their sleeves while "Cap'n" only has 3 making him a Commander not a Captain.

4) Carrots don't help your eyesight. Also, baby carrots are just regular carrots that have been chopped up! Rabbits don't eat carrots in the wild either.

5) Oranges aren't always orange; sometimes they are green or yellow. To make all our oranges "orange" they are treated with ethylene gas. And limes will turn yellow if they are left on their trees.

6) "Double Dipping" doesn't spread any more germs than "single dipping," and the 5 second rule doesn't exist.

7)Double Stuf Oreos don't actually have double the "stuf" it's actually closer to 1.89X.

Did any of these surprise you? Have you known the truth for a long time? Grab a snack and tell us in the comments below.

When it comes to cereal, I tend to buy the "natural" or organic. If I buy Froot Loops, it is because my granddaughter begs me, too which I am thankful is not all the time. I am aware of all these maneuvering with food. How else can a manufacturer profit? They have to sell and if it means giving rainbow colors to food to make kids eat and moms buy them, then that is the path to go. Consumers have to be wise about their purchases. I also know that baby carrots are not what it is. Another way of selling food..it is convenient. Treating food with ethylene gas is not a great idea...not healthful. Someone in my family does not mind if Double Stu Oreos is only 1.89X. She just eats the cream.

I think they should market Double Stuff Oreo's as just "Oreo's," then they could make a fortune selling the regular ones as "Diet Oreo's"

Then why do the rabbits in my yard go for the carrots in my garden? I know my domestic rabbits go for them when offered.

Also in WWII pilots were told to eat carrots as it improved night vision- I presume there was some kind of study to show this - otherwise - why not eat cabbage!!

Domestic rabbits are rather stupid. Probably the carrot tops are more to rabbits' liking.

Dad did 30 years in in the Navy, so I knew about Commander Crunch. And having seperated the Froot Loops as a kid I knew about that one too. The rest don't suprise me any.
