the case of the missing blueberries

"At least Betty Crocker's Blueberry Muffin Mix admits it contains no real blueberries. Well, if you read the fine print, that is. It's ingredients reveal "Artificial blueberry flavor bits" which are made from dextrose, Corn Flour, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Sugar, Citric Acid, Artificial Flavor, and of course the obligatory Blue #1 and Red #40."

Oh, the rubbish we sometimes eat!
I often tell my son when he asks for a treat, that almost everything ready-to-eat that comes out of a packet is dangerous.

Seriously. There is a moral in there someplace about much of our modern way of life. And I might add the "real" blueberries you buy at the supermarket are genetically enhanced with steroid, Viagra or something akin, to real studly and taste like crap. :(
