Jesus, he's become more Scottish than me...

Now that you're one of us, what's your opinion of the Irn Bru sugar debacle? I, personally, can't believe that we let it happen.

We just... let it happen. :cry:

OT: egg-fried rice with bok choi and beansprouts and the like. I've accidentally become a vegetarian again, and considering whether to keep it up.

Not being familiar with the details of the incident, and not being Brenden, I will just say: the less sugar, the better.

You'll be quite pleased, then. They lowered the sugar content drastically to avoid the sugar tax which came through in 2018.

I'm exaggerating, somewhat. I never drink the stuff myself, but I hear that it doesn't taste as good anymore, and this has angered those of a particularly Scottish disposition. :P

Well, as much as I love that sugar-free alternatives are flourishing, I really hate how companies like Barr and Coca-Cola are interpreting/implementing the sugar tax. Rather than just keeping their sugared products alongside the sugar-free and reduced-sugar versions and increasing the price according to the tax, then allowing the price pressure to influence consumer behaviour as the sugar tax was meant to do, they're pulling bullshit like outright getting rid of sugared versions of drinks (like Sprite) or reducing the available size of sugared versions, which is just making consumers upset.

Anyway, Irn Bru has more issues than just the sugar. I can't believe they're still using two of the "Southampton Six" food dyes (Ponceau 4R E124, Sunset Yellow E110) which were found in a placebo-controlled double-blind study to increase incidence of ADHD symptoms in 3- and 8/9-year-olds.

Yup, agreed. I'm pleased that there's encouragement (and nudging) towards healthier alternatives, but I'm still pretty much pro allowing people to make less than healthy dietary choices, since ultimately it is their life to live as they see fit.

The joke always was that it stains your insides orange, but this is too real. :gaping:

Although, this is a great fact, which I shall deploy the next time that one of my Irn Bru drinking comrades opens a can. :P

Heinz Beanz with Mexican spices and herbs and an avocado stirred in on seeded high-protein loaf toast.

It was a very filling and hearty breakfast, with 32 g of protein and 28 g of fibre!
Exactly what I wanted after having stayed up all night tidying and cleaning without eating anything.

I made baked buffalo wings and bread pudding for the Super Bowl party I got invited to. Luckily for me, no one else there is interested in the game bedsides eating and watching the Halftime Show. :keke:

This evening René and I each got 2 6-inch subs from Subway for the price of one as part of a Valentine’s Day special, so I had one cheese steak melt and one chicken and bacon melt.

I got two Meatless Meatball Marinaras. :3

The first one I got back in Veganuary was better. I think it was because I had them put sweet chilli sauce on that one instead of mayonnaise/aioli.

Of course you think it's better when you add what's basically a sugar syrup. :rolleyes:
