Always watch your drink


To Europeans it seems weird and oddly suspicious at first that some American products boast that they contain real sugar, until we remember that Americans usually use corn syrup.

Heh, you should make a strip about America being upset with Denmark because Denmark made a fat tax and America thinks it's a tax on fat people

I think you mean "high-fructose corn syrup"
Lately, I've noticed a lot of ingredient lists that have corn syrup AND high-fructose corn syrup....
Yay, America....

If it makes you guys feel any better, I'm American and I find honey ham to be gross. I'd much rather eat a salt-cured ham. A lot of our mayonnaise seems to be sweetened "spreads" like Miracle Whip (which is also gross). There are a lot of people here who consider Hellmann's (aka "Best Foods") to be the only "real" mayonnaise. It doesn't have any sweeteners in it. Our bread, though, yeah we don't have any excuse for that.

Our chocolate is repulsive. I'm so sorry about that.

That's really disturbing, in my country politicians try to regulate prices though specific taxation in order to make healthy food cheaper then unhealthy food.
And high fructose corn syrup is pure poison to the body, by all rights of sanity it should be illegal to put into any food item, and by promoting it it seems like the American Oligarchy literally wants the masses to grow fat and sick.

It refers to "cane sugar" as in not super refined white sugar. Cane sugar is slightly brown and comes specifically from sugar cane.

White sugar can come from just about anything though. Even beets

"What about saccharine? It is cheap and I also can use 700 times less of it. But that would still make it taste weird, so no, I'm going to use dextrose..."

Reminds me, my mom asked me to pass the corn syrup at breakfast. I looked at it because I thought it was maple syrup and it was maple syrup. I looked at her and she said that she thought it was corn syrup because it said corn syrup on the label. I looked at the label and it said, "NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP"
