Argh, as if American chocolate wasn't nasty enough already  Reply with quote  

"The US Food and Drug Administration is considering redefining 'chocolate' to allow substitution of vegetable oil ($0.70/lb.) for cocoa butter ($2.30/lb.), and whey protein for dry whole milk. There are already standard terms to differentiate these products from chocolate, such as 'chocolatey' and 'chocolate-flavored.' The change was requested by the industry group Chocolate Manufacturers of America. Leading the resistance to this change is high-end chocolate maker Guittard, with significant grass-roots support from the Candyblog. The FDA is taking consumer comments until April 25.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm, vegetable oil and whey protein...



Hopefully they'll add some monosodium glutamate, then you could go to the store and just outright buy shit without all that pesky chewing and digesting.

Candy Bars?
You dont eat Snickers, 3 Three Musketeers, Heath, BABY RUTHS?
What are you? Some kinda foreign nationalist living here, taking jobs away
fron decadent hard non-working Americans?
Sitting there, eating your fancy foreign Chocolates, enjoying the sweet creamy
goodness of real cocoa butter mixed with Chocolate.

All I can say is,... better start sharing, Razz

1. You missed the bit where I gave you an excuse to make pie with American candy bars.

2. Guess you wouldn't be interested in the Reese cup cake that's currently in my kitchen.

CHOCOLATE + PEANUT BUTTER = MMMMMM!
