General food Complaint - CONSUMERS AREN'T STUPID

Review by kittyboy on 2009-06-21
When are food companies going to get it? when I purchase a product that says 'reduced fat' that is what I expect to get. why must they replace the fat with unwanted chemicals in an effort to fool the consumer? my pallet will adjust to the difference in taste. there is a huge market for a company who'll make products with reduced fats and sugars and not replace the fat or sugar with junk. products don't need to be so sweet or fat filled. I find it hard to believe we can send people to the moon but can't make TANG with 50% less sugar and not replace the sugar with artificial sweetener.

Maybe it's because you are using a pallet, instead of a palate.
NH review.

I think they're caught between a rock and a hard place as far as this is concerned. Even w/ 50% sugar (which is terrible for you too, btw), it would be extremely tart and they would probably lose business without the artificial sweetner.
