Yesterday I ate a chocolate chip cookie. No this is not a rare occurrence in my life, much to the chagrin of my ass. But this cookie was from Wisconsin and I am not all together sure that it was a cookie because this is the ingredient list.
Enriched Wheat Flour
Chocolate Chips(sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin as an emulsifier, and artificial flavoring)
Margarine (partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oils), water, salt, butter, lecithin, mono and diglycerides, sorbic acid and sodium benzoate added as a preservatives, artificially flavored, artificially colored with beta carotene, vitamin A palmitate added)
vanilla (water, ethyl alcohol, caramel color)
vanilla flavor(dextrose, corn starch, tocopherols, ascorbyl palmitate, water, vegetable oil, alcohol tumeric, propylene glycol, APO carotenal caramel color)
What the hell did I eat and why does butter need artificial flavoring?
