A few days ago I blogged about a distinct lack of strawberries in Strawberry Yogurt flakes. It seems, however, that these are not an isolated incident.
Have you ever read the label of a smoothie bottle?
Probably not as the print is so small and you are not as sad as me. Allow me to enlighten you:
Take a closer look at the ingredients though and it is 54% yogurt, 38% apple juice. That leaves 8% for the NAMED INGREDIENTS.
So what do we find? 7% honey and vanilla lumped in with antioxidants and ascorbic acid.
Less than one percent but it makes up fifty percent of the name.
Just how can that be allowed?
I am serious about this. I really think this is false advertising. You can’t just say “oh it has a bit of something in it and therefore we can call it that”. Surely?
If that is the case you can start calling me skinny.
Inside me there is a size zero woman, let’s call her Victoria. Admittedly Victoria is encased with a slightly more rotund woman but if she makes up 10% of my dress size then I am a damn sight closer to looking like Victoria Beckham than that smoothie is to being vanilla.
Ten times in fact.
So. Will you break the news to David or will I?
