wtf?
There's Crushed Beetles in My Yogurt?

"When you dig into a strawberry Yoplait yogurt,
take a moment to contemplate
where the beautiful pink color comes from. Strawberries?
Think again. It comes from crushed bugs."

**blecchhhhhhhhhhhhfffffffffffff**

okay Jen, between you and Zed, I'm not eating. EVER. AGAIN.

Zed said...

Yes, as of today I'm giving up food. I hope you're proud of yourself Jen.

Zed said...

Oh, great, I just read that Jell-O pudding is made of gelatin, which "is made from a protein that is derived from prolonged boiling of animal skin, tissue, and bones."

It doesn't matter to me though, because I gave up food today. Once again, thank you Jen.

Jen said...

I already knew about the Jello thing...

The beetle thing really blew me away.

I'm giving up food too..

that's just NASTY

I just sent a letter to Yoplait telling them that I'm totally disgusted. Obviously if they actually said what they put in their yogurt people wouldn't buy it. So, they're sneaky bitches. I have banned General Mills for good.

Yuck!

kim said...

Im going to throw up now...

I liked strawberry yogurt too...

Im going to shelve that with the jello and veal

Jen said...

I don't think every brand does it

god, I hope not

How do you even find out??
it's not like the label says:
contains crushed beetles!

It must be only the "pink" colored yogurts...

D.Prince said...

Pardon? I'm really quite in shock right now.

Jen said...

I just read the article again
I was so stunned the first time it
didn't fully register

if the package says:

carmine or cochineal extract
that means Mashed Beetles!

So look for
cochineal extract..!

We've been eating it all along and we're not dead yet. I'm not as flipped out as you, because I'd rather eat crushed beatles than Potting Soil which I hear is in Hood Ice Cream.
"Red" told me her doctor told her that when she discovered she had "gerd".

Jen said...

"Red" told me her doctor told her that when she discovered she had "gerd".

I don't understand this sentence

Zed said...

Jen, GERD is gastroesophageal reflux disease. Now if you could just figure out who Red is, you're in business.

Jen said...

BWWAHAHAHAhahHAhH
HAhAHhaHAHaHAHA

I remember red!!

ahhahahaHAhaA

Lorraine said...

Thanks Jen
I learned my lesson...anything that says synthetic colouring, I stay away from...

Clarise said...

Well, the beetles must be really small...so if you eat it quickly you might not taste them. Or is the strawberry taste really the beetles? I'm going to find out....
