February 20 Real Sugar

Dashboard Of My Work Van

Imagine if you can a world where sugar, not high fructose corn syrup, is used to sweeten something. That world used to exist and now thanks to the cost of corn rising above the cost of sugar that world exists today. And what do we have to thank for this great 'throwback'. The high cost of gasoline which makes ethanol a viable option and in case you didn't know ethanol is made from corn. So farmers are selling their corn to ethanol producers instead of food producers and now giant corporations are putting 'real sugar' back into their products because it is cheaper than fake sugar. And that is the twisted fucked up world we now find ourselves living in. I might sound bitter but I love the taste of Pepsi with real sugar. So I guess this particular story has a happy ending.
