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.
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?
