Hehe, my MIL brought margarine on a family camping trip; when my boys found out what it was, my 7 yr old ds literally recoiled from it in horror

Another labeling trick I've noticed is MSG is never listed as such, it's always down as 621, so if you don't know your additive numbers, you wouldn't know.
