I spent last Saturday morning at BJs with my clan. While the Big T8 waited at the deli for an hour, I was able to finish my tornado of a shopping spree (isn't that always the case at BJs). My older girls have (finally) taken a liking to applesauce, so I bought a 36 pack of Mott's. Why Mott's - because it was a name I associated with good, healthy food products. So, last night while the girls were chowing down on their dinner I looked at the ingredients and was SHOCKED! Mott's, you are using high fructose corn syrup in applesauce! I couldn't think of a reason why...apples are yummy the way that they are, they have plenty of sugar and I've had plenty of applesauce that just have apples (and ascorbic acid) as their ingredients. Actually, I took out my last container of store brand applesauce and looked at the ingredients...just apples and the ascorbic acid...nothing else. While I won't throw away the remaining 32 containers of applesauce, it will be my last time buying the Mott's brand. While on this kick, I went down to the basement to see what ingredients the 3 huge jugs of apple juice have...apples, water and ascorbic acid. Good choice, and it tastes just fine!
I guess I learned my lesson, the brand you think you trust may not be the best for you, and I need to stop and check out the labels before I buy! A savvy shopper is a good shopper!
