For the next few weeks I am still stuck on my third shift job (August 21 cant get here fast enough) and so I have a lot of nights where I am doing whatever I can to stay awake. I swore off coffee in college, so I drink a shit load of tea, Vault and Mt. Dew and I eat more candy then I should.
The other day I picked up a blast from the past: Nerds. I hadn’t had them in years, and I was enjoying them until I looked at the ingredients. They are: Sugar, Dextrose, Corn Syrup, Malic Acid and Less than 2% of Artificial Flavors, Carnauba wax, Color Added.... etc. It was the Carnauba wax that caught my eye, not the fact that the first 4 ingredients are all just different types of sugar. Carnauba wax is the same shit people use to wax their cars (I say people cause I don’t clean my car). I looked closer at the Nerds and saw that they were in fact quite shiny, but there is no way that makes them taste better, so why add it? Really how many kids would turn down little crunchy balls of sugar just because they have a dull finish?
