I'm home from church. Directed the choir & wind ensemble, sang in a vocal ensemble, led worship, went to lunch with good friends. Now home getting ready to watch the super bowl. Our super bowl snacks are carrot sticks, celery sticks stuffed with low fat cream cheese with chopped olives, cauliflower with hidden valley ranch dressing mix with low fat yogurt and diet green tea. Who needs any stinkin' pizza, chips and beer?
As long as we make our shopping decisions based on what the companies put on their boxes, we will be vulnerable to any advertising gimmick they come up with. If we're going to take control of our pantries, we have to educate ourselves.
I am so anti GMO but the big companies are fighting any requirements to list the GMO in their products. As people begin to educate themselves they will be able to make informed deciions. The only things the big companies understand is their bottom line and until the general public starts effectingthat they will continue as they are
They do state it is only because customers are wanting it, not because they believe GMOs are bad, and they chose this type because it was easy, but at least a major brand is listening to what people are asking for. If this gimmic works, maybe others will follow.

Success consists of a series of little daily victories.
I too wish they'd make other cereals GMO free, instead of just the regular Cheerios. But I'm grateful that at least one of their varieties is GMO free and maybe others will follow suit or GM will stop using GMOs in other foods as well. It's a start. Let's hope it doesn't stop there.
