Why does every farking thing need some kind of sweetener in it?

I know for a fact that Gatorade contains neither alligators nor AIDS.

Evolution.  It's the reward for packing calories.

Also reminds us of the breast milk we enjoyed as infants.

I can buy a whole box of cereal for the price of 2 or 3 apples, and the apples are never even ripe and taste like fecking cardboard.

So Coca Cola is gonna make Fruit2O? Mmmkay.

So on the one hand, it's really gay. But then, on the other hand, it contains sin gas, which is my favorite.

Can't say I was a huge fan of Fruitopia, but at least that stuff had real fruit in it and no artificial sweeteners.

Sometimes the store puts the real apples next to those plastic display apples. Maybe you bought those instead?

Billy Bathsalt: Why does every farking thing need some kind of sweetener in it?


Because our brains run on sugar, and sugar is addicting, so our brains tell our body we need more sugar when we get sugar, and the food industry knows this, so they sugar up our brains and get us addicted to sugar so we continue to buy their sugary products for our brain in higher and higher quantities.

No, the store only sells apples that were picked 2,000 miles away before they ever went ripe, and were then treated with chemicals to make them look ripe.

theorellior: Seriously though, how hard is it to take some club soda, squirt some lime juice in it, and add sugar and/or stevia to it if you need the sweet?

People are retarded.


You underestimate America's love of ready to drink bottled beverages. For at home consumption, you are spot-on.

karmaceutical: Does anyone really grab a mass produced bottled beverage like this and expect it to have any fruit?  Next up, no vitamins in Vitaminwater, Mello Yello isn't mellow... and vaguely green instead of yellow.  Crazy world...


Vitaminwater has vitamins added. It also has a slew of other ingredients that made be go back to drinking Coke.

hardinparamedic: Betep: Warning: Coca Cola has no Coke either.

/Just sayin'

Coca-cola has dihydrogen monoxide, one of the most dangerous chemicals known to man.


That stuff is used in nuclear power plants. They use it in the production of weaponry. It's a byproduct of volcanos. The WHO estimates that 388,000 people die worldwide, EVERY YEAR, from inhalation of this substance, many of them women, children, and the disadvantaged.

And did you know that the 9/11 hijackers were ADDICTED to dihydrogen monoxide?

That stuff is vile.

Ahhh, it's a choke product. That would explain why they don't want my money.

Tsu-na-mi: About 5 years ago I found something called Fruit2o, and it was a sugar-free, fruit-flavored, non-carbonated drink.  It was awesome.  Then it got harder to find and I figured they discontinued it.  About that time Veryfine apparently got sold by Kraft and I guess the distribution changed.  I'll have to start looking for it again, it really was good.  Tasted liek actual fruit, not the normal soda version of fruit flavors.


They still sell Fruit2O in a lot of places.  There are quite a few other varieties of flavored water  which are worthwhile as well.   Fruit2O well, it often was one of the cheapest options for calorie free flavored water, but it always tasted that way to me too - it felt chalky, as the sweetener often doesn't seem to dissolve completely.  However, it's usually at Walmart and Sams Club if your grocery store doesn't carry it and you want it.

Try unsweetened cranberry juice not from concentrate. It's like getting punched in the face (in a good way).

You know, if their focus groups keep telling them that people want a healthy alternative to SugarWater, some form of juice perhaps, why don't they just sell juice?

People don't want to pay more for juice than SugarWater, perhaps?

Juice actually is pretty much just SugarWater.

Juices are expensive to store and process, because real food goes bad after a while. Besides, most of the stuff they call juice in america is no better than soda. It is all chemical flavoring added to deoxidized fruit juice. Even the 100% ones.

Congrats! I had a two day headache but I'm not sure if it was my current cold or the sugar withdrawl. I don't feel like eating all day long now, so that's something. I hope I can stay on the wagon but I don't know, Easter is coming up. I'll have to remember how shiatty I feel when I eat too much sugar and stay away from it.
