A quick observation

I am a label reader at the grocery store, and I have noticed that often times the store brands actually have less bad additives (high fructose corn syrup, monosodium glutomate, etc) in them than the name brands. For example, Lenders bagels have corn syrup, but the store brand doesn't, Gorton's fish sticks have MSG, but the store brand doesn't and Target brand fruit loops don't have corn syrup either. And the store brand is obviously cheaper!

I have noticed that at Aldi ,of all places. Extremely cheap groceries, yet less bad stuff. Puzzling?? Their version of cinnamon toast crunch cereal has 1/2 the ingredient list than the regular brand!!
