Well, according to an article by Fox News, Jelly Belly is being sued by a woman in California (no surprise here…California=wackadoodles!) because she didn’t know that the jelly beans had sugar in them. WHAT?
So, right off the bat, I am going to throw this information out with a “You Are A Moron” attached! Simply because we, as Common Sense people, can see the reality of this on the surface…without having to dive into the meat of the matter. Or, in this case, the jelly!
Jelly Belly has a product called “Sports Beans” that contain (somehow) extra carbs, electrolytes, and vitamins. Because, all good things that are not good for you should have good stuff in them, right? So, as the story goes, the ‘beans’ have what is called ‘evaporated cane juice’. And, it seems, that this lady, AND the FDA, deem that ingredient as misleading…that someone can construe that as “healthy” and “sugar-free”.
“You Are A Moron”. First off, I’m pretty accurate in saying that there are many ‘juices’ out there that contain sugar. I am also pretty confident that sugar is from cane…as in sugar cane. And, I’m gonna venture further to assume that cane juice is made from sugar cane, and, even if evaporated (which takes out the moisture and leaves the crystals), is still…sugar. Hmmmm…..so, in conclusion…..Jelly Belly’s Sports Beans are, in fact, NOT SUGAR FREE!
Now, I mentioned before that she has the FDA backing this false advertising claim. According to the article from Fox News, “In May 2016, the FDA announced that the term “juice” should not be used unless referring to that of a fruit or vegetable, and that calling sugar “evaporated cane juice” is in fact misleading to consumers.”
Well…I’m surprised we haven’t opened a congressional investigation into this heinous crime!!!
Let’s just call this situation what it really is: STUPIDITY! Common Sense is once again being cast out of society and being replaced with Common Stupidity! Come on people! Really stop and think here. This isn’t about the shock of finding that candy has sugar in it, nor is it about some woman wanting her 15 minutes of fame and some money…this is about the continual decline of standard thinking!
I say ‘standard’ and ‘thinking together because once-upon-a-time, common sense was rampant upon the earth. People actually stopped and thought things through…on their own…without governmental assistance or direction! Weird, huh?
But, sadly, those days are fading faster than a sunset. It has almost become so common now days to say and do the ridiculous that “jaw hit the ground” descriptor will soon be the way of the dinosaur…extinct! Please….for the love of God…don’t let this happen!!!
Think, people…think! Jelly Belly is a candy manufacturer. They make candy. Candy has sugar in it unless it clearly say “sugar-free”. We have known this since the beginning of dawn! And to be so shocked and horrified by this late-in-life discovery that candy has sugar in it…well, to her and others like her, I say…SUCK IT UP, BUTTERCUP! Grow up. Wake up. Stop acting like the spoiled little brat and get a life/clue/reality!
Time to take these coddled people with nothing better to do but whine and complain and stick them in their safe-place, shut the door, lock it, and throw away the keys! Harsh? Yes…because life is real and if you cannot handle the reality of candy having sugar in it, you sure as heck are going to have a miserable existence outside of your little bubble…(and remember: bubble gum has SUGAR in it…unless clearly marked SUGAR FREE!)
