    Can only agree. From the use of corn syrup in fizzy drinks to who knows that crap they have in the chocolate; I pretty much stay away from all the sweet stuff whenever I visit the U.S.

    It's a shame really. I remember seeing so many ads for Hershey's stuff in my import US comic books when I was a kid, and I thought "wow, all that looks so great! The American's have really cool chocolate!". Then I got to go to the U.S. for the first time in 1998 and one of the first things I bought was a Hershey's chocolate bar.

    So much disappointment.

    It fills a gap in the market made by US expats and those with really, really sweet teeth. I'd much rather we could buy a decent corn dog over chocolate though.


    Staying away from sweet stuff in general is a good life tip. When I turned 30 I all but gave up on chocolate, fizzy pop and booze - result over time was no tooth ache, clearer skin, less indigestion, a smaller waist line and most importantly an end to migraines, sinuses and reduced insomnia.


    I may be a lot more boring but I feel a helluva lot better.

    I think this can be said of any food, but in principal; I agree. I don't really have a sweet tooth, but I used to go pretty heavy on the fizzy drinks, especially as my career hit full swing and I was constantly working crunch.

    I've changed my habits since then; a fizzy drink is a rare treat rather than a regular indulgence.
