My blood is boiling to 9,000 degrees and I’m as furious as a hungry woman at a dieter’s convention!
Why does the syrup bottle always have to be a sticky mess with drippings down the side? I figure it’s the High Fructose Corny-ness spewing from the bottle all by itself, because that stuff is alleged to be trouble.
I try to limit products containing the Corny-ness, so it’s great that Log Cabin Syrup has “removed the HFCS and replaced it with natural sugar”. It looks like syrup, tastes like syrup, talks like syrup (yes, food talks to me), but the Corny-ness is not included.
When I eat pancakes (not very often), I use sugar instead of syrup to save on calories, but I may find myself indulging in the Log Cabin brand. I tried the new and improved version on some Whole Wheat Eggo Waffles. It’s not as thick as HFCS-type syrup, but also not as ridiculous-sweet. I prefer the new Log Cabin taste over other big time syrup brands and I’ll buy it for my greedy family.
All the people who lurk at the Healthy Hippie Natural Food Store may have better ideas, but if you’re stuck in the mainstream grocery, you now have a healthier option.
