Something that I rather enjoy doing and don’t do enough is sit down, take a random item, and try to figure out what all the ingredients are. It’s not as much fun with UK food products, ’cause they use clear speak. So I’m having to resort to one of my import/gifts from back in the States for my amusement. I’ve opted for Coffee-Mate French Vanilla Creamer because frankly? The ingredient list is a fragment of the list for Spaghetti-Os, and it’s still not exactly a tiny list. :p
Oooh, and there’s an image of the ingredients available on their website, so I’m going to post that here in lieu of scribing it out- hooray, progress! This means I can spend more time translating to see what horrors lie behind… the fancy science names! D: D: D:
Ingredients in actual English!
Sugar, vegetable oil (coconut transfat death OR transfat death compliments of palm kernels or soybeans – how nice!), SCIENTIFICALLY ENGINEERED FAKE SUGAR COMPLIMENTS OF KING CORN (?!!!), and less than 2% of wtf sort of powdered milk (that doesn’t contain lactose – how nice), some sort of salt often used in fertilizer (that apparently moderates coffee acidity (?!!*!)), natural and artificial flavours (?!!!?!!!?!!!!?!!!! (I really want to know… wait, no.. no, I really don’t), more transfats (‘to prevent oil seperation’, the package claims ><), acid salt (more ?!!!), and finally, salt.
In short, that tasty tastiness is fatty salt in powder form, containing no lactose! And yet, I’m going to continue getting people to bring it to me, ’cause I’m a glutton for tasty tasty chemical death.
