I discovered “Blood Syrup” at the Dollarama today while looking for loot bag treats for a Halloween party.
I don’t know what part of BLOOD SYRUP most repulsed me the most:
*the fact that corn syrup is the first ingredient followed by sugar
*the fact 100G (1/2 the bag) of blood syrup is considered a “serving”
*or just the fact that this is meant for consumption at all.
I picked it up thinking it was fake blood. My plan was to smear it on my face and head and lie limply at the bottom of the stairs on Halloween morning.
But then I saw that the bottom tube ends in a straw/ tube which kids can suck on. You know, I bet the Frankenstein gummis I just consumed are also made of the same ingredients, but in liquid form, I can’t handle it.
Yet I was raised on corn syrup. My mother would mix it with milk and put it in my bottle as an infant (this is true–it was cheaper than formula).
But she never dyed it red. That’s just GROSS.
