Something I never thought I would see

Wonder Bread has now gone natural. Consumers have demanded that the company start to make healthier breads, so Wonder Bread responded and created a bread with no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial preservatives or flavors. It is truly amazing to me that this icon of unhealthy, highly processed white bread has done this 180, but I am also glad to see it happen as well. I am sure that this will not preclude the same company from making the unhealthy, highly processed breads as well, but still change is good. What's next all natural twinkies?

On a slightly different note, I love Mexican Coke. No, I am not doing illegal drugs. The Mexican Coke I am referring to is the Coca Cola that is produced in Mexico. It seems to have a cleaner taste, which I have figured out is probably because they do not use high fructose corn syrup in the drink just good ol' fashion sugar. I can find this around here pretty often since we have a large Latino(a) population. So hooray for Mexican Coke.

I think Hawaiian Coke also uses sugar instead of HFCS.

Great news re: Wonder Bread, but can you still take a hunk of it and mold it into little cubes or other shapes? That's what I liked to do with it when I was a kid!
