They seemed to have put less and less salt in things like that though.
Stupidly enough they put more and more sugar in the strangest things ( often making it worse than the versions wihout) like chips/crisps (all flavours), pizza, bread, soup, pastasauce. There are much more ridiculous examples, I just cant think of them atm. I often check the ingredients. But not allways, and sometimes I think, yuck this taste pretty gross, and I look and they have put some sort of sugar in it again.
In products if you made it at home from fresh you wouldnt even think of adding it (and most times not for preservative reasons, because often there are (if you look hard enough) versions without sugar)
And no, I am not some sort of health freak before people feel the need to tear me down or something.
I wonder how a top something from all the water would look like. I remember also used to hate drinking the water at my fathers place, I found it disgusting when I was little. And he only lived 200 km away. He didnt used to believe it taste different I think, but my sister concurred. (maybe it was the plumbing but pretty sure it was not, so such a big difference in such a short distance allready)
