Starbucks eliminates high fructose corn syrup and more from their products and will be offering salads as well: http://www.reuters.com/article/ousiv/idUSTRE55175Y20090602

Or so they say......guess I'll be skeptical of all labels and claims.

I also noticed the ads for Snapple saying they were using "pure sugar" and Planters nuts with only sea salt. Like Dianne, I feel these claims are an attempt to "sound" good while still finding other ways to include the bad stuff so that we won't notice. I can't think of a single grocery item that we use made by the big food companies since we avoid everything by a company if we react to even one of their products. Starbucks would be especially hard to believe since their success relies on addiction/msg more than most other companies. I mean, how on earth would a coffee shop become so successful if everyone wasn't relying on the product to self-medicate, feed caffeine addictions or counteract the effects of free glutamates (the after-lunch slump)?
