FDA bans life risking ‘Sprinkles’ from cupcakes


I am trying to stay upbeat with good news and a Holiday theme. Well, I tried. So I bring you the last season that we will see the deadly sprinkles adorning cupcakes. Like a sniper taking his best shot, the FDA put their scope’s red light on the infamous cupcake. So folks, get out there before the new year and grab yourself some sprinkles. Here we go:

Come the New Year, the Food and Drug Administration, ignoring the principle that in most cases it’s the dose that defines the poison, will issue new regulations designed to remove even trace amounts of hydrogenate oils, commonly known as trans fats, from our diets.

Trans fats have been in our foods since the 1950s to increase shelf life and improve taste. A small amount appears naturally in some foods, but research has determined that large quantities of trans fats in one’s diet can be dangerous for long-term health.

But so can large quantities of bacon, and no one has proposed banning bacon, at least not yet, but we’re sure that thought has occurred to those who want 16-ounce soft drinks banned while forcing our children to eat cardboard school lunches.

Each American consumes a mere 1.3 grams of trans fats per day. That’s roughly 0.6% of our total daily calories, and no research suggests that this poses a health risk. But that’s not enough to dissuade the federal nannies from regulating even the most minute aspect of our daily lives.

    Not the sprinkles! UGH! Seriously…If they want to ban something how about RED DYE?? Did you know we are the only country still using it?? Did you know it causes seizures in children, among other things? If the FDA was doing their job they would jump on THAT bandwagon but noooooooo, they attack the sprinkles first. What’s funny is that I don’t even like sprinkles and my panties are in a twist! LOLOL!

    Who remembers the late 1970’s, back in the days of exposing the $500 the DOD was paying vendors for toilet seats and hammers, back when it also came to light that there were 28-count em’- pages of regulations to comply with for supplying donuts to the PX’s on DOD military bases? There is nothing new or too stupid or too regulated under the sun when it comes to this government. Toxic sprinkles, a mere bag of shells.

    Where will the madness end?! Every time I say nothing will shock my any more something like this comes along and proves me wrong. Once the government takeover of healthcare is complete they will really step on the gas in the interest of “bringing down healthcare costs.”

      Right you are. We shall see how the GOP responds. If they can regulate sprinkles there is nothing that they will not attempt to regulate.

    Note to bunkerville:

    If you like it, the government will tell you it is bad for you.

    Don’t like it or like it? Eat it anyway. Who said that we were supposed to live forever? I thought zerocare was supposed to put us in an early grave to keep us from taking what we paid into the system. That zerocrapcare is what is going to kill me.

    It’s absolutely terrible for you, it’s not necessary, and children will eat anything sweet and colorful. This is good policy.
