Autumn loves Ketchup. The thing is though, it breaks one of the rules that I think are really important, it has High Fructose Corn Syrup. (HFCS)

There really isn't a worse sweetener you can put in your body, but it's in everything. I just finished reading a book called In Defense of Food. In in Mr Pollan talks about the average amount of calories an American gets from corn. it's something like 10%. A day.

And it's not like we're having corn on the cob two times a day. It's the HFCS in everything we eat.

So a few months ago, we were in Brampton giving Autumn Ketchup. I looked on the ingredients and noticed that HFCS isn't in Canadian Ketchup. Weird. Anyway, Rhona found some Ketchup here in the US that doesn't have HFCS, so we're all set.

But I think Americans are beginning to notice that the food we eat is a little weirder. Check out this clip from a recent Raptors game:
