This is a package of frozen sugar snap peas. My husband bought them, thinking they would be a healthy vegetable to serve with dinner. When he tasted them, he found them to be awfully sweet, which prompted him to take a closer look at the box.
Well there’s the reason. They had added sugar! Salt, too. I was flabbergasted at the unhealthy (and sneaky) addition to something that is so naturally good. And can you see the Weight Watchers endorsement on the package in the first photo? For a product with added sugar, which is completely unnecessary and bad for you? What were they thinking?
The takeaway from this is twofold:
1) Read labels more carefully (I thought we were already doing that, but this one slipped by us)
2) Don’t trust the food companies
Makes me pine for those sugar snap peas I grew and enjoyed last summer.
