Blue Raspberry Slurpee Ice

There’s nothing like sitting down with a good book in one hand and a Blue Raspberry Slurpee Ice in the other. The book is Psychological Types by C.G. Jung. The Blue Raspberry Slurpee Ice is a conical snack module from the local 7-Eleven containing water, sugar, corn syrup, natural and artificial flavors, citric acid, phosphoric acid, guar gum, modified soy protein and blue #1. I don’t like corn syrup but it seems like nearly everything made these days contains it. I’m not sure why that is, maybe there’s a corn syrup conspiracy? Try substituting “Soylent Green” for “Corn Syrup” when you read the labels on things and you’ll really begin to notice it. If you ever wondered what all that other stuff in your cream-filled snack cake is (like Polysorbate-80), check out this cool table of food additives. Mmmm… makes me hungry just reading it.
