Who knew:

Jake's Aunt Deanne pointed this out to me a couple of weeks ago. Check out the ingredients in this sour cream. I immideately came home and checked out the ingredients in my GV brand from walmart, who listed at least 10 different things. Who knows if it really will kill me in the end, I am not sure that anyone would care to check out what finally did me in, but at least it won't be the ingredients from sour cream (not anymore anyway). Also I got this email a couple weeks ago and I immediatley sent it to everyone I know. I have gotten back some reply's to this, and WHO KNEW???? They need to do a commercial on the proper way to use this stuff. The following is the email I recieved:

Was this something we were supposed to learn from our Mom's?????I can't believe it's been there all this time. I had to go into the kitchen and check this out for myself. Whoever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? You know when you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The darn roll always comes out at the wrong time.Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it, and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, Press here to lock end. Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of aluminum foil and it had one, too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! I can't count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out, when I was trying to cover something up.I'm sharing this with my friends. I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this. I know you're going to go and check your boxes, so go ahead!

My mom (DeAnn) pointed the same thing out to me, too! It got me thinking about the kinds of stuff that are in all the foods we eat...some of it I have no idea where it came from or what it's for or if it is necessary! If your interested in reading a good book about the argument between processed foods and organic try out The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. Part I and Part II are the only parts I've read but I thought it was the most interested book I've read in a long time. I'm not usually into that kind of stuff but it sure got me thinking (and I'm a Wal-Mart junkie!)
