I had a friend, who is also a Sweating Sugar follower, tell me that I only post positive things on my blog. True, but who wants to read all the boring crap that happens in my day? I know I don't and I am the one who has to proof reads my posts! Her comment got me thinking though......so........... Welcome to my first official 'COME ON PEOPLE, REALLY?' rant post. Want to know what set me off? This:
What does it say in the bottom right of the label? Gluten Free. Apparently, I must have been in a coma because I swear, I woke up one day and half the population had developed an intolerance to Gluten. Boom, overnight. I feel so left out!
|Hi, we are evil glutens. Why do you hate us?|
So what happened when I was in my coma? More and more people are claiming to be sensitive to gluten. Okay fine, only those people can be the judge of that. What gets me is that items that are naturally gluten free are now advertising to be gluten free. They might as well label the products as being metal and rat poison free. It is such a blatent example of capitalizing on the rising trend of consumers avoiding glutens. Like my 'lil bottle of salad dressing. And Rice Chex. And tomato sauce (all listed items are also metal and rat poison free).
Here are some other items I found lying around my kitchen:
|I should totally be in advertising|
How many of you sweets have tried a gluten free diet? Did you notice a difference? What foods have you seen a gluten free sticker on?
