No high fructose corn syrup!" Their website claims that they removed the HFCS and replaced it with "real" sugar. Aside from the stupidity of the comparison of HFCS and "real" sugar -- as if the sugar in HFCS is somehow "fake," and the other sugar is somehow "real" (and, of course, magically healthier) -- any guesses as to what the first ingredient in this newly formulated syrup is?
That's right! Plain, old-fashioned corn syrup. Here's the complete ingredient list:
Corn syrup, liquid sugar (sugar, water), water, salt, natural and artificial flavors, cellulose gum, preservatives, sodium hexametaphosphate, caramel color.But compared to a doughnut, it's practically health food.
