A Gruesome Discovery – Planters Peanuts

cornsyrupsolids

How do I know my kids listen to my nutrition tidbits? As we were doing homework and snacking around the kitchen table the other day, Aleyah, as she was eating her Planter’s Lightly Salted Dry Roasted Peanuts, announced that there were corn syrup solids in the peanuts. I declared there certainly wasn’t (thinking that these are lightly salted peanuts and that would mean the ingredients should be peanuts and salt). Nope. My label-reading daughter was right. Here is the list:

Ingredients: PEANUTS, SEA SALT, MALTODEXTRIN, CORNSTARCH, CORN SYRUP SOLIDS.

WHAT?! That’s ridiculous. I bought them on sale but will not be buying them again.

Thank you Aleyah for being my co-detective! detect
