It’s fairly common knowledge that the ingredients in food products vary depending on where they’re being sold. You might not realize, though, that if you live in the United States, your food contains a lot more, well…crap than it does in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Europe.

Notice that Glucose Syrup? Not High Fructose Corn Syrup? Yeah… that’s important.

Oh man… I really want that other juice! No HFCS!

I’m not saying I’m going to move to the U.K., but I am saying it would nice if companies just did the right thing.
