When did Neilson Dairy Start Putting So Much Crap Into their Cream?

Today is Adam's Birthday.  He is turning 37!  For his Birthday he wants a Black Forest Cake.  I usually buy my cream at a local farm, but I didn't have enough cream to make the whipped cream for his cake so I went to my local health food store, no whipping cream and my local grocery store didn't have any organic whipping cream.  Since I didn't feel like driving into the next town to get some I just bought a carton of Neilson Fresh Whipping Cream instead.  Silly me didn't read the ingredients until I was actually whipping the cream.

Ingredients:  Cream, milk, skim milk powder, dextrose, carrageenan, mono and diglycerides, cellulose gum, polysorbate 80, sodium citrate.

WTF!!!

Am I that old that I actually remember cream containing one ingredient, cream!  When did they start putting all that crap into cream?  I certainly won't be buying that ever again.

The irony of me writing a post about remembering to read food labels just a few days ago is not lost on me today.  I have learned my lesson for sure.

Now who wants cake?

Wow! I've never read the ingredient list on whipping cream (I just assumed it was pure cream, silly me). That would explain why Emory gets stomach aches from eating "store bought" cream (as she calls it), but not cream from the health food shop or farm.

It's really scary how food isn't really food anymore.
