A taste of honey

I am posting all the time about the importance of reading labels.  I recently ordered some new products from my favorite website Gluten free palace.  In the excitement of finding some brand new things, I forgot my own rule.

I unfortunately have a sweet tooth-so when I saw these:


my eyes lit up like a Christmas tree.  I saw gluten and dairy free, but did not look further at the ingredients list.

Gluten Free Flour (Potato, Tapioca, Sorghum, White Rice, Brown Rice), Trans Free Margarine, Water, Sugar, Eggs, Brown Sugar, Confection Sugar, Cocoa, Vanilla Extract, Dry Yeast, Honey, Xanthan Gum, Cinnamon, salt, Corn Syrup, Baking Powder, Sunflower Lecithin, Emulsifier, Nutmeg, Canola oil.

I didn’t see the honey, honey.  I can’t tolerate it.   When my package arrived, I quick put everything into the freezer.  I did take a quick look at the ingredients.  Oh no!  Well, I thought, maybe my problem with honey had somehow disappeared.  After all, it could have been something else, right?  I had been putting honey in my tea, along with so-called non dairy creamer which isn’t really non-dairy.  I might have been mistaken.

Well, I ate one last night for dessert.  I have to admit, they are delicious.  But my tummy rebelled about a half hour later.  Rats!   Now I will have to throw them out.  I absolutely hate myself for buying this stuff and then having to waste not only the food, but the money.  It doesn’t pay to keep it if it upsets my stomach.  But I still hate myself.

Which brings me to the point of this little parable.  READ THE LABEL!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think so many of us have made this mistake with food labels. As you say it’s just not worth it in the end. I hope your stomach has now recovered.

    I know what you mean. It’s so hard not to get excited when seeing something that’s usually not a possibility. Then finding an issue with it afterwards… 🙂
