My husband went to a vending show the other day, and came home with a huge bag of snacks.
The only good thing about this was the bag itself. It was a large mesh bag that could be used for grocery shopping! LOL
In the old days, I would have been thrilled! I would have ate the chocolate & cream cakes, danishes, chips, candy bars, and cookies without batting an eye lash. Between the two of us, we would have ate most of it in a few days. Sad!
But the new me took one look at all of it, and sighed. This is why Americans are sooooo fat and out of shape. This garbage is in our vending machines and this is the junk that we keep stuffing into our mouths.
I took a look at most of the labels and was just shocked. Most were sneaky and had “two servings” so the calories were twice as much. 600 calories for a danish? 200 for a cookie? Hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup! It made me sick!
I do admit I guess while I was searching, I was hoping to find maybe one or two healthy offerings, but basically nothing was edible. (Except for the organic green tea samples from Bigelow)
It’s very sad to realize that we as a nation will all continue to be obese until products like this are taken off the market!
