I love chocolate syrup. Nothing tastes better on a big bowl of ice cream. But have you ever read the back of a Hershey’s Syrup bottle? It is full of preservatives, artificial flavors and thickening agents.
Just think about that…THICKENING AGENTS. perhaps if we want to lose weight, adding thickening agents into our bodies is not the best idea!
How about preservatives?! are we trying to mummify ourselves? Get back to real food and you can have the things you love without packing on the pounds.
