Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a hellava sweet tooth. I just love sweets, cakes, chocolates, biscuits…you get the picture. Romantics is just one of those sweets you pop into your mouth and enjoy the sweet taste… until now. I was in Jo’burg (Johannesburg for our international visitors) a few weeks ago at a sweet warehouse and got a packet of Romantics – amongst other luxuries. This evening I wishing for something sweet so I opened the packet and popped one in. Damn!!! this aint no Romantic. I bit on it and it just crumbled like a compressed block of sugar. It was as sweet as hell. I even convinced my wife to taste one. I tried another… just as bad. No way was I going to give my kid those. Then it dawned on me of the rubbish they make for the kids today. No wonder they are sitting with allergies, coughing and hyper active.
Before I threw them in the bin I decided to dissolve a few in a small cup of water just for fun. I was horrified to see what was floating on top that couldn’t even dissolve.
Take a look at the pics to see what I mean. This is the crap that we are giving our kids and then when they are up all night coughing, we want to pump them with medicines. We need to rethink what we are feeding our kids and if this is just one type of sweet that is full of junk, imagine how many other sweets are damaging our kids.
What do you think?
