Not About Food

High Fructose Corn Syrup- Friend or Foe?

stuck in Hartford County | | Mar 13, 2010 09:21 AM

Just watched another one of those pro-hfcs ads, and it's so...kinda insulting. I feel manipulated, and it leaves me feeling sort of "icky".

There's this good looking, healthy couple picnicking in a park somewhere, and the girl takes out a red popsicle and the guy goes "Isn't hfcs bad for you?" and she's like "no" or something and goes on to talk about how it's good for you "in moderation"...

There used to be an informational ad on Nick or PBS that was really cute. It was a song about how sugar isn't great for you and you should limit the amount of food you eat w/ingredients that end in "ose" as in "gross". So well done. I feel this hfcs ad is a major step backwards in improving our national eating habits.

Or maybe I'm wrong and just too...easily angered?... or something.
