Do You Ever Wonder?

What the hell is with some of the labels on food products?

I bought a big ass jug of popcorn at Costco the other day and it says 100% whole grain. For God sakes. It's popcorn. Corn (grain) that pops.
How stupid do they think we are?
Or how stupid are we that they think they need to tell us stuff like that?

Another one is fat free jello. Duh!
Isn't that a no brainer?
It is flavored, powdered gelatin.
They never used to tell you, you just knew.
All of a sudden they have to tell you.

Don't forget about the back of the Snickers label.
Manufactured in a plant that processes nuts.
Peanuts are in Snickers. Or almonds, which are nuts.

So, as Chris Matthews says, "Tell me something I don't know."

Now, on the other handle labels can be misleading, yet truthful. Just because your bottle of juice says 100% juice doesn't mean 100% of 1 kind of juice.
Some kinds are blends.
In big it might say cherry juice and on the top it will say 100% juice. But it won't be 100% cherry juice. They might mix in some grape or apple along with the cherry juice.
