Doritos Nacho Cheese, 100-Calorie Pack
A few of you guess it right! Good job. I L-O-V-E-D Doritos and would crave them during my pregnancies. Do not judge 🙂 The companies have it right when it comes to grabbing you with an addicting taste… they are good. Am I the only one?
Let me compare the two labels for you so you can see where they trick you into thinking “healthier” is better for you.
I think it is sad. Healthier should not mean adding more additives and extra not-so-good-for-you ingredients. It seems by doing this they are sending out the message that healthy does not really taste good. I think the major food companies are wrong here. Do you?
