The Craziest F#?king Peach I’ve Ever Seen

Michael Pollan has famously* suggested avoiding “food products that contain more than five ingredients.” So he would surely love this definition of “Peaches”, from a container of Peach-flavored frozen Greek yogurt:

Peaches and Ice Cream

Just to get this into text, these “peaches” are made of: sugar, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, water, modified cornstarch, carrageenan, natural flavor, and citric acid. That’s eight ingredients (seven, if you count corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup as the same thing), none of which grew on a tree.

Perhaps most horrifyingly, this concoction of crap** manages to produce visible bits of orange texture within the ice cream. These peaches don’t just come in a can; they were grown in one.

And yes, I’m aware Michael Pollan would be less than impressed with this snack on account of more than just the peaches.
