Uh, when the hell did this happen? Do adults really need gummy chews to get their fiber? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I don’t even know what to say about this. It’s one thing if you’ve raised a small child to be a picky eater and they don’t get enough fiber. But come on, adults.
Is this just one more step in the sugarfication of America? We put sugar, fat, and salt into everything. So has it gotten to the point that we even need our fiber to be covered in sugar? I mean, take a look at the gummies offer by Fiber One.
…they’re freaking shaped like fruit!
Fruit. Do Americans even remember what ‘fruit’ is? It’s the stuff in the produce aisle that’s LOADED WITH NATURAL FIBER. You know another added benefit of fruits and veggies? They’re chalk full of vitamins and minerals and good carbohydrates and everything else needed to keep your body functioning. You’re basically flushing money down the toilet if you’re an adult who buys this crap. Instead of spending money on stupid gummy chews that only provide 4 grams of fiber, why not buy ACTUAL FOOD that will provide the same benefits and more?
In one of those pictures is a piece of food that contains good carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. And in the other picture is an assortment of high fructose corn syrup, fat, salt, and sugar. The moral of the story is that you wouldn’t need to buy vitamin supplements and fiber gummies in the first place if you ate real food instead of the processed and manufactured junk our government subsidizes.
Thank you. That is all.
