I think it started with coke, when they decided to make a little change. What a flop that turned out to be. Since then many others have jumped on the new and improved band wagon and ruined what were once very good products. Here are five popular products I just wish they had left alone.
The number one spot goes to chewing gum. We had a choice; we could choose sugared gum or fake sugared gum. This was all well and fine, you see those artificial sweetners are way worse than the real thing. They make me quesy and nauseous and make my heart race. Rarely am I able to find a simple pack of regular - with sugar - gum anymore.
What's worse, I have seen gum that claims 'no artificial sweetners' but I am not falling for that anymore as the ingredient list bears reading.
Why go and mess up a good thing. The ketchup was fine, trust me, we're fat and lazy and killing ourselves with our diets but unless someone makes a meal out of ketchup on a consistent basis then it really does not need to be any healthier. Real ketchup contained high fructose corn syrup. I'm beggin you! Put it back!
Was a time when you washed your clothes and they came out smelling clean or not at all. You could toss them in the dryer or line dry them and they just smelled clean. Nowadays everybodys got so much fragance going on it doesn't even smell good anymore.
Bathe in peach body wash and mango shampoo, spray yourself down with a musky perfume and then don lavender scented underwear and a mountain fresh blouse. Eeeeeew! There's enough competition for our noses. Throw in a touch of foot odor and you smell like a rotten fruit salad that got left out on the mountain top too long. Please just bring back clean.
Why is it that almost all CLEAN smelling body washes, shampoos, conditioners and such are for men? I'm a woman and I love those wonderful clean fragrances but they are so hard to come by unless I buy the mens products (which I often do) but they are just too harsh. I need something that will pamper me and leave me smelling delicately clean. Please help me, I don't want to smell like fruit or a nut or a slut. Just get me clean thanks!
Lately I've seen and even tried the new flavored marshmallows. I don't think they have been around long so maybe this article is out just in time. Listen marshmallow makers, don't do it, just don't. The flavors are just too artificial tasting and besides who needs a chocolate marshmallow - that kind of spoils the fun of adding real chocolate to the smores don't you think?
I definitely agree about the marshmallows. H5
Cute list, thank you! H5!
Totally agree on the laundry products...I love just plain old clean smell. We often buy unscented products to avoid all the artificial scent ingredients.
I am so with you on #4. I do enjoy my lavender body wash but sometimes, I just want to smell plain old clean!!!
Great, funny list. I totally agree especially about the gum. Gum also is so bad for your dental work. Nice list, Elaine. High 5!
Ha ha, funny girl. I can't tolerate HFC but I'm with you on the gum. I just made a list of good ones. :)
It's the corn syrup additives that change the flavor---at least for the food products!
wow, I agree with all your list. Two wishing does not bring these products as they were. I wish they would have left them alone too. h5
Thanks for the chuckle! I'm in agreement that manufacturers should leave well enough alone. Salt free ketchup is knarly. I don't eat marshmallows, but thanks for the warning if ever I get an urge. HI5
