I’m Certain It’s Healthy…

I had to run an errand (make certain I’d enough funds in the bank to pay my auto insurance!  Thanks again for your kind assistance T&K!)

While I was running about I decided to drive-through Dutch Bros. Coffee.  (I do also visit that other  coffee place, but, Dutch Bros. has openly supported firearms rights of their employees!)  There is one just up the block from home.

I returned home, and leisurely drank my coffee and wolfed-down said muffin top.

Then I read the package labeling.

(in part)

Although our location has changed, the original recipes and handmade process has always remained the same. We refuse to skimp on the ingredients and will always stay committed to use only the highest premium quality available.

Then, the ingredients (in the fine print)…

Yep, just like Grandma used to make – If she had been a Monsanto chemist!

Now, don’t get me wrong.  It tasted wonderful!  And, I’d no allusions that it had been made a dozen-at-a-time in some old lady’s kitchen…

But, the advertising was a little sketchy.

And yes, I will probably purchase another in the future.

Sigh.

FTC – I bought everything mentioned.  Go Away!

  1. The question I ask isn’t “Why do they put so many chemicals & additives in there?” It’s why does the Washington State Dept. of Health make them add so many chemicals in their food?”

    It’s the Left Coast, after all.
