What I Like About the Corn Syrup Commercials

No, really. The message I like is that you should do your own research and make your own decisions about what's good for you and what isn't. In a way, they're saying that you shouldn't just parrot what you've heard, but take some time to look into the facts. Don't buy the hype. Know what you're eating.

In the case of corn syrup, my research tells me that I'm happy to avoid it most of the time. Which isn't the message they were trying to send.

It soooo annoys me when people follow the hype about food. Bad enough when it's slightly scientific, but much worse when it's a commercial message they're sheepfully following.

You know anyone who's fallen for the corn syrup commercials? Any other food hype that drives you nuts?
