A month of so ago, I wrote a letter about the purveyors of foodstuffs advertising their products as “natural, all natural or 100 percent all natural” in an effort suggesting that their products are superior.

In other words, a scam. I had very few comments about that letter. So be it.

The other day, I saw another two insulting examples of advertising. A nationally known bakery and a nationally known cannery both labeled their products “Made with real ingredients.”

l figured that would make a lot of people sleep better at night, but I quickly realized that was just another scam.

If you take a teaspoon of beach sand, which is real, and put it in a can of soup or in a loaf of bread, it becomes an ingredient of those products. All ingredients are real. Have a good night’s sleep.
