Oi! FSA leave my bloody Cornflakes alone!

What I eat is up to me and me alone. Now thanks to our lovely Labour government I have to eat low salt Cornflakes. Did I, or any other customer ask for this change to the recipe? NO. Is this the Nanny state interfering in our lives again? YES.

Kellogg's have tried to hold out against reducing the salt in their cereals because of the taste that it provides. Thanks to the Food Standards Agency, we are going to be enjoying dull breakfasts because they think they know what is best for us. It really does make me effing sick.


God I bloody hate Labour.

Someone served me with reduced salt/sugar/fat baked beans... absolute shite... I only managed to get them down my neck, after adding half a bottle of HP.

Most ready foods need extra seasoning nowadays... although confectionery seems to be getting far sweeter... but products like Corn Flakes are a problem because there is no obvious way to disguise the blandness... except for making them sweeter.

Presumbly Steve, from March this year (when the change comes in) we look forward to a video on your blog of you adding more salt to your cornflakes in the morning with the tagline of; 'fuck you Labour whatcha you gonna do about it now?'

BF,

I'm going to glue a cornflake to a cotton bud (with icing or honey) and use this small shovel to spoon a large pile of salt into my mush.

H,

Agree, those beans taste like arse (not that I know what arse tastes like, but I'm pretty sue that if I had tasted arse, it would taste like those beans) What is the bloody point when all people are going to do with most meals is add salt because it tastes so bland? The FSA is another massive waste of our money.

Look on the bright side Steve, You can now also eat the box. After all, it will taste much the same as the contents.

The Center for Consumer Freedom has a commercial out called "Attack of the Food Police".

I don't think we have this agency in Scotland, but I suppose we'll still have to eat the stinking corn flakes.... The won't bother making proper ons for us. We never count.

Now here's a suggestion.... you can stop eating Corn Flakes and start eating porrige. And you can put as much salt as you like in it.... mmmmmm lovely stuff, and even the pratt Brown can't interfere with that.....

PS: I'm sure these beans don't taste of arse.... I mean where would they get the essence from?

All food will eventually taste like those white Rice Cake thingies... have you ever tasted one... I'm sure the manufacturers slip in the odd polystyrene ceiling tile for a larf.

Is the Credit Crunch a new kind of breakfast cereal ?

"I'm sure these beans don't taste of arse..."

At least an arse is useful.

Add some lard to the confection as well.

Nothing winds up the nanny statists quite like lard, except the considerable quantity that Two Jags carries around with him.

At least we have a choice whether or not to eat low-salt Ketchup . . .(at the moment!)
