Taking A Hard Look At Packaged Food
July 5, 2012 15 Comments
Snack Girl cruises around the supermarket looking for
cute guys food to review. Lately, she has been having a problem.
After three long years on the snacking scene, I have bought, tasted, and wrote about many of the dominant brands. That’s right - it is becoming hard for me to find packaged food to review! Crazy.
What have I found? My conclusions are that “whole grain” is term that is very confusing and doesn’t usually denote a healthy food. Also, sugar is added in much larger quantities than are acceptable to me.
I have compiled a list of my favorite reviews so that you might save yourself some time at the grocery store. I have spent far too many hours staring at boxes trying to figure out the relative healthiness of snack food.
Please share this list with people who get confused by labels and marketing claims.
What have I missed? Have any suggestions?
