I asked Little Son if he'd like to make lollipops. Or hard candy. Something.
(He's very interested in Chemistry Experiments That You Can Eat.)
After a conversation with my friend Julie the other day, I remembered to look a few minutes ago at all my flavorings. (I have no idea why I didn't check on these before I bought them. I check everything!, unless I know I've checked it before.)
Number one ingredient... propylene glycol. Less than 6% of everything else. (artificial flavors.)
The stuff they use to make anti-freeze.
I don't use cosmetics (well, shampoos and creams-- I'm not a Cosmetics kind of girl) that contain propylene glycol.
I tasted the cinnamon extract I bought a few days ago.
Nasty. (McCormick's.) You can taste the nastiness.
We're opting for oatmeal cookies.
