Blueberries… or Blue #2?

This video by shows the extremely deceptive marketing ploys many companies use when selling foods that are contain “blueberries”. Next time you’rr out at the store picking up a box of something with scrumptious looking blueberries on the cover, it’s imperative you look at the ingredients to make sure that you’re really getting blueberries and not the ‘ol switcheroo of Blue #’s 1 & 2, Red #40,  various sweeteners and blueberry “puree” (if you’re lucky). These sort of deceptive marketing practices are disgusting; they make it hard for those who may want to eat a bit healthier by tricking them into thinking they are, when in reality the food they buy is anything but.
