Spider Vs. Beetles

31 May

 

Remember back in April when Starbucks and bunch of other companies who uses “Organic” food dyes were caught using small bugs found in Africa or South America?

Well my friend and I got into an argument on what bug they used. I saw that it was a Spider.. while my friend believed it was a Beetle.. Well we are kinda both wrong.. One website suggests that it is not a Beetle but doesn’t explicitly state that its spider, and from the looks of this bug it’s not a Spider either… Many websites refer it as Parasite (well Wikipedia and other bit more reliable sources does).

Why did I bother to research about the stupid bug?

I love Starbucks’s Strawberry Frappuccino.. (I didn’t have one for long time cause of this I recently had it that’s why I got into this argument)

Although I understand Vegan’s and Veterinarian’s concern for their choice of food, I think that there is nothing wrong with it. I don’t see any kind of festering situations because of this. Few cases of Allergic reactions were reported, but that is too small for the larger mass to turn to other alternative. The only two alternatives are derivatives of tar..

To be honest, I am rather relieved to know that I know what makes the drink pink. I don’t believe ignorance is a bliss most of the time and this is one of them. I really hope that Americans can care more about their health and make many food processing corporations that might be good as Starbucks or bad as McDonald to come clean about what they use in their food.
