Valentine’s Day Cookies That Hate You

January 21, 2012 |

Love, Love, Love… is all you need. That is almost true. But what you also need to support and continue your love is nutritious, loving food. Not the one which secretly hates you, your body and your lover! And yet, here you go, there is blood-red Soft Sugar Cookies of Walmart Bakery, “baked with pride” for you. With pride, really? Let’s see is there anything that the Bakery has produced to be so proud about.

DyeDiet Doesn’t Buy It!

Maybe it is healthy whole grains? No. Maybe no artificial flavors added? No. Maybe no artificial colorants? No. Then what? Here is the list of what the manufacturer of the Soft Sugar Cookies is proud about:

Is all this edible? Well, read CSPI documents first: Food Dyes: A Rainbow of Risks and Diet, ADHD and Behavior. You decide for yourself but I don’t buy it. To me FD&C Red 40 is not a symbol of love:

With every the Valentine’s Day cookie “baked with pride” by Walmart Bakery you and your loved one will take high chemical risks of DDFI = 47/24 ~ 2 and will get low nutritional value of DDNF = 24/61 ~ 0.4. These values are just a tiny bit better than what Lofthouse Cookies manufacturer offers but all they are NOT even close to what you may want to wish to your lover for the Valentine’s Day: tender love, health and nutrition.

Is there a better alternative? Of course there is! Look at Back To Nature Cookies or recently reviewed Newton Fruit Thins that you can buy at your local Walmart store! Those are the healthy alternatives for you and your loved ones. Enjoy your healthy food choices!
