We live in an amazing world. You can travel pretty much anywhere you want. You can watch anything you want on TV. You can find information on nearly anything thanks to the internet. Then there’s the food and consumer goods we buy daily. In this day and age, restaurants, stores and supermarkets have combined to offer us an incredible range of products that were only a dream several decades ago. It’s probably a good thing too, considering how much our consumer culture buys. In all seriousness, as we walk through the shopping wonderland most of us don’t even give a second thought to what goes into making the various products we buy. Some of it can be pretty interesting. A lot of it, however, can just get downright disturbing and gross.
Ahead there are 10 products many of us buy, use or eat on a daily basis. Unfortunately, there are some rather disgusting things that can go into making these products. In fact, some of you may be a bit hesitant to buy them the next time you’re at the store. There’s everyone’s favorite scrap meat treat, the hotdog. From there we’ll discuss foods that use red and yellow food dyes. So, if you like cherry ice cream or Kraft Dinner be ready to second guess your life choices. Even the plain old potato chip can have some nasty stuff hidden in it that may have you skipping the chip aisle. Processed breads and fast food desserts? Sure, we know these aren’t good for you but there’s actually something that goes into them which just doesn’t seem right. You’ll also notice that ground beef and gummy bears share a bit more in common than you’d ever want them to. You can wash that all down with a Red Bull while wearing your Canada Goose jacket. Yup, those also have a backstory that may just have you wondering if you should buy them. We’ll end it all off with castoreum, a product that’s in a lot of stuff you eat but you likely never knew what it was. Dinner’s served!
