Oh my god…
Ever since I’ve made it back to the US I’ve been gorging on things I haven’t had the chance to have in the last 4 years or so. Today I bought a pack of fruit roll-ups. Now I realize how these guys work.
They realize that their main customers are kids, and if they change the recipe then the only ones who’ll complain are the kids and who are they to care?
Well, I haven’t had fruit rollups in about 7 years probably. Maybe less, but the point is that I had some today and I was severely disappointed.
You know what they tasted like? Fruit by the foot. I remember trying fruit by-the-foot when it came out and not liking it. I don’t know why, I think because it didn’t have real fruit flavor. Well that’s what strawberry fruit roll-ups taste like now.
And you know how I know? It’s more translucent, less red than before, and doesn’t have seeds! I remember fruit roll-ups having strawberry seeds in them. Now they don’t! I’m feeling completely betrayed right now.
Look, I know that the original fruit roll-ups weren’t 100 natural, but at least they were some part natural. The seeds were natural at least. Now…I don’t know…I’m thoroughly sad about this…
