I agree, it is the shortening--Walmart and Crisco. Kroger does better for me.
I'm just very put out with our government (local and state) making the changes for the good of our health. Pooh--they need to concentrate on the other vices that are deadly. Here in our city, they have banned smoking in public places (esp where children go). If you want to have smoking allowed in your building, no children can come in or you have to have a special room and air equipment. Crap--unless the city is making the payments on my business--they shouldn't be able to tell me what I have to do! Just my soap box. Oh--and I am NOT a smoker!
Oh no! You are going to get me on my soapbox!! Here is a question that totally bugs me. What kills more INNOCENT people, alcohol or smoke? How come no one is banning alcohol? I personally know more people who have been killed by drunk drivers than have died from lung cancer from second hand smoke. In fact, I don't know anyone who has died from second hand smoke. Why aren't we banning alcohol? Something to think about isn't it. The smoking and transfat banning is a political agenda, not an attempt to protect us. Okay, off my soapbox now and give me back my trans fat. I should be able to clog my arteries in the privacy of my own home if I want to!
