I found this chick and she was quite a piece of trash. As a matter of fact, I will even call her a fake, phony and a fraud. This chick got my goat and my daughter had to drag me out of the grocery store kicking and screaming. Let me back up and tell you what happened. I need to preface the story by telling you that I love chocolate. One might venture to call me a chocoholic/addict/something along those lines. So I know what goes into making chocolate and although the ingredients can vary somewhat, you always need cocoa, butter, a sweetener and vanilla. At least I thought so, until I met this chick who tried to convince me otherwise.
Here she is looking sweet.
Well in all seriousness, I just could not get over this. Check out the label clearly stating MILK FLAVORED CANDY. (oops, its a duck not a chick, but for the purpose of this blog, chick worked out better!) I picked up the box and looked at the ingredients- There are more colors in there than in a rainbow.
Check this out:
Sugar, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, skim milk, soy lecithin, and US CERTIFIED COLORS: FD&C YELLOW 5, YELLOW 6, BLUE 1, BLUE 2, RED 40 AND RED 3, Vanillin (an artificial flavor).
Is that even anything that resembles anything that you would want to eat?
OMG! This would be so hysterical if people weren’t actually giving this to their kids. I mean, lets get real. Give them real chocolate if you want to give them something.
Why are manufacturers even allowed to pretend that this is chocolate?
Clearly if it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck, it’s a DUCK, but it is not edible!
This Easter, do yourself a favor and get the best chocolate you can find and afford. It will be worth the taste. And your body will thank you too.
