This past weekend was Superbowl and our family was ready to enjoy some of our favorite snack foods.  Trying to keep it somewhat healthy our daughter purchased a spinach veggie-dip with pumpernickel bread.  It looked so appetizing.

However,  upon reading the ingredients on the container I was dismayed at what I discovered.  To my utter amazement I discovered CHICKEN FAT as one of the ingredients.  Wow!  I certainly was not expecting that in a veggie-dip.  Needless to say, we ate the pumpernickel bread minus the spinach dip!

It is a reminder to be an informed consumer. Too often, we get caught up in the pretty packaging.  If it looks healthy, then it must be alright to eat!  Unfortunately, that is not the case.

This one surprised me! Remember read the labels and don’t be fooled by marketing tactics and pretty designs.
