      Great hub - Gee, I guess eating Scrapple is out of the question huh? It's my favorite form of pig snout, ears with cornmeal and wheat flour.

      Contadina's Alfredo Sauce gives me the running trots.

      Several of these foods I was not surprise about but there were a few that truly astounded me. The Quacker Oats - once I read what was in it, it made perfect sense. I am not a junk food person but I do eat the Quacker Oats - well, until reading this.

      Thanks for this info.

      I didn't said that coconut oil is bad. I just mentioned that cooking bugles in it is not a good option. I read it on a couple of health websites and only then I have mentioned it above.

      What do you think is wrong with coconut oil?

      Why is coconut oil bad, or how is it bad for you?

      Funny that I don't eat any of those products anyway to begin with. Occasionally I will eat a bowl of Quaker flavored Oatmeal. That is VERY occasionally. Almost all the time I cook from scratch.

      Guess I'm gonna have to rethink Campbell's red label soups, too as I use them to cook with constantly. Thanks for the great "head's up!" Best/Sis

      Bugles fried in coconut oil are not good for heart functioning. Baked bugles are much better than that.
