Not replying any more??

You mocked my post by selective quoting.

I edited it to make it clearer.

I explained it.

Now you've disappeared.

Hello?????

As someone said already Tayto have gone mank as well. Horrible overpowering taste of them now. It started when the began using E621 in the recipe.
Used to love a bag of cheese and onion but I wouldn't touch them anymore.
The supermarket own brand 'deluxe' type crisps in the larger bag are much nicer.

It's not the E621 (Monosodium glutamate) to be concerned about, it's the varying levels of Acrylamide, common with crisps (another junk food).

There's a guy on YouTube, steve1989MRE, who eats old and very old MRE rations. He always comments how the Wrigleys gum in, say, a 1942 WW2 ration is miles above what we have now and the coffee too.

The risk of botulism on the other hand...

Cheap, mass produced crap, the food processing industry is gone to sh1te.

Sweeteners are added, sugar reduced = cheaper to make, less sugar tax, less calories, and less flavour. Great cure for constipation though!

Bring back the 80s stuff, was everything bigger then? (wagon wheels?) Or were my hands and gob smaller?

Plain soda water, a home-made or local organic cordial, and you'll be way happier. Even a bit of sugar syrup and a squeeze each of lemon and lime juice. I hate the way sweeteners taste, but my gut refuses to tolerate them and protests in extreme ways if I inadvertently ingest them.
I posted a recipe for lime cordial at one point in the Roses' Lime Cordial thread. (Food forum, I think.)

I can instantly taste artificial sweetener in anything and i find the aftertaste in particular absolutely vile. So many foods and drinks ruined forever.

He seems like a genuinely nice lad but I'm not sure he's quite all there.

They want every to taste the same. They also want to get rid of individual packaging labels too.

They want to turn you off the sweet food and have you living off the ground.

We are being prepped for Green Communism.

I think it's more likely to be a bad combination of trying to do something about the general sugar intake and big business try to maximize profits at every turn (cheaper ingredients, lower taxes etc).

It's funny - you use communism as the enemy here, but really its the big companies/capitalist model trying to cheap out that's got us on this one.

I have stopped buying most bars and drinks as a result of the rank taste. Still eat my fair share of crap - I just buy things like lindt bars or make stuff when I can be arsed.
