A lot of folks are going to be cranky about this one! Let me say, before I break the bad news, that despite appearances, I don’t hate food. Anyone who knows me (and particularly those who have lived with me) is well aware that I’m a total foodie, despite my rather specific way of eating.
Okay, now the bad news. Yes, Tofutti Cuties are chock full of high fructose corn syrup and other additives. Why would they do this??? Another disappointment is that Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese, a delight to bagel craving vegans, has partially hydrogenated soybean oil aka trans fat aka death serum. Is this a plot to rid the world of all vegans? At least it provide an opportunity to use your Guerrilla Nutrition Labels.
I’m not going to dwell on that. For now here’s a funny post on Tofutti Cuties on Gawker (the comments are grand). And a suggestion for something entirely delicious. Not eating milk products and not being a fan of soy ice cream, I was looking for a substitute for summer love. But this is no substitute, this stuff is the real thing. Sharon’s Sorbet is a great frozen treat and they have a chocolate that will make you forget ice cream ever existed. The ingredients of the raspberry sorbet are: raspberries, water, cane sugar, lemon juice and pectin (which comes from fruits like apples, but if anyone knows something evil about pectin, holler, it looks good to me). I’m sure there are plenty of other all natural sorbets out there; just watch out for high fructose corn syrup.
