    i was wondering what kind of disgusting things people know what are in evrday food like certain chocolate


    eg i know of

    m&m's have a derivitive that comes from a cactus dwelling weevle (like a beetle)

    fanta some of the fanta products contain fish derivitiv products

    some wines are filtered through animal bone

    alot of glacier cherrys have cochineal as colouring wich is a dirivitive from a bug

    Cochineal is actually beetle blood :sick: They squash them all up

    And also xantham gum, which is a thickening agent used in lots of things from ketchup to ice cream, is the mucus produced by bacteria. double :sick: It's quite often noticeable in cheap coleslaw where you can see the gloop when you take a spoon full
