Finally finished HFCS stickers!
I am using Zazzle to make my long-overdue High Fructose Corn Syrup Warning Labels. I decided to make these after going through a family member's fridge and circling HFCS on all of their food labels using a sharpie marker. It was really quite stunning how many places it appears, especially in things for kids. HFCS also makes surprising appearances in other products, like salad dressing, pickle relish, and white bread.
Zazzle features a number of other Corn Syrup-related products, so I am obviously not alone in thinking about this. My favorite of these is here.
Reading Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food, which I can STRONGLY recommend, inspired me to finally finish this project.
