Pineapple Gummy Bear
My parents took a trip to Maui recently. My mother brought back some pineapple gummy bears. Pretty cool! Anything that’s made from Hawaiian pineapples has got to be great!
Well, let’s take a look at the package here… This is the list of ingredients:
Glucose syrup, sugar, gelatine, sorbitol, pectin, malic acid, food flavor, citrate sodium,
food colors, tartrazine quinoline, sunset yellow FCF Red #40.
Hmmmm… no pineapple? Well, it’s disappointing but I can’t say it’s much of a shock… Oh! What’s this? Says on the front of the package:
“Packed in Hawaii. Product of China”
Ok, so it’s not even Hawaiian anyway. So China makes gummy bears with a fake pineapple flavor then ships them to Hawaii to be packed and labeled to make tourists think they’re getting something special.
