I like eating a pickle for lunch from time to time. Kosher Dills, mini or large, that crunch - not nasty sweet pickles or relished pickles, ew! So I was at the store the other day, and they had Claussen kosher dills on sale. I usually buy the Trader Joes, or Fresh & Easy store brands, but I fondly remember amiable Claussen stork ads from when I was a kid, and I figured, why not?
The next day, I'm eating one in my kitchen when I see the ingredient label: Fresh Cucumbers, Water, Distilled Vinegar, Salt, High Fructose Corn Syrup... wh wh whaaaat??? (re: Broflovski) Why the hell did Kraft Foods put in HFCS into pickles? Pickles? Really? Why? The "thumbs up" here is representative of high blood sugar, increased obesity, and promotion of type II diabetes symptoms.
Kraft / Philip Morris will not get my pickle dollars ever again. Epic failure, Kraft.
