    I think my favorite is the carton of eggs that says "May contain eggs." well, what the hell else would be in it?

    Picked up a packet of gummy candies for a possible indulgence; immediately put it down because the first ingredient is "glucose syrup (wheat)" along with 50 other ingredients.

    LOW FAT DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFIN
    I just stood there smiling

    And at school almost all the girls I walked past by at lunch held a plain salad in there hand while I was heading home to have salmon steak with stir fry veggies I kinda felt sad for them :/

    That said, I am not sure why you would need three different types of oil in a cupcake unless one was used in the frosting and the other in the cake? Or perhaps different cakes were frosted/made differently? Sounds odd. I'd call them up and ask because a well-made cake is a fantastic thing (yeah, not a fantastic primal thing but I'll get over it the couple of times a year I eat cake.)
    I'm guessing that the three different flavors are made with different oils... But, I checked the package again and saw that they were 3 months past their expiration date... thanks, coworker.

    I was just a bit annoyed by the "may contain eggs" statement because no matter how many times I checked, I couldn't find eggs in the ingredient list.

    Another CW moment

    Milka muffins. That's all I'm gonna say.

    Seriously, people. Milka muffins. Ugh.

    Well, it is a legal disclaimer so people with allergies can't sue. You can't bring a products liabilities case and claim you didn't know bc you didn't read (contributory negligence or causation). If it was processed in a facility that also produced on other products with eggs, it will disclaim eggs.

    Pretty sure that's not going to make much difference to anything.

    So I can't sue people for throwing wheat/gluten in just about everything, because they list it? ... Damn.
    But I get it. I wonder how long it took the companies to figure it out. :P


    Marielle:

    I really liked Milka when I was younger, but then I found out that I liked dark chocolate more.
    Don't worry: the muffins looked absolutely disgusting. Like a normal muffin, but with a gob of hardened milka chocolate on it, that looked like it'd fallen out of the sky and squashed the muffin. :S

    You're right, they still look fine. And before the cupcakes, there were chocolate bon-bons that had been expired for 1 year, and one of my coworkers ate one and said it tasted fine.

    ... I'm actually waiting for one of the bon-bons to crawl or slither away. Or for a nuclear disaster, only to find out that the bon-bons and the cupcakes survived it.
