I am sitting at my desk, on a business conference call... I pop open a can of diet orange crush. Mmmm, it tastes pretty good. I had not yet tried this particular diet beverage. As my mind wonders away from the conference call, I turn my can and begin reading the label. Crap! Total carbs = 5. I then scan the ingredients. Number two on the ingredients list is "high fructose corn syrup". How in the heck did a "diet" beverage end up with HFCS? I have become so accustomed to picking up diet drinks under the assumption that they were sugar-free. I should have taken the time to read the label at the grocery store.
