Ben and Jerry, we really trusted you. We’ve eaten your delicious ice cream for years, feeling good about it the whole while because it says, “all-natural.” But you lied. We didn’t think it was possible for hippies to lie (all of the LSD stored in their brains) but you did. Your ice cream is not all-natural.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest says that 48 of the 53 flavors that carry the all-natural label contain dextrose, alkalized cocoa, corn syrup and hydrogenated oils, among other chemically modified ingredients and artificial flavors. The non-profit watchdog group will be taking their claims to the FDA unless Ben and Jerry’s stops putting the all-natural label on their ice cream.
We knew it tasted too good to be true. Will you stop indulging in Ben and Jerry’s now that you know it’s got chemicals and artificial flavors?
