The Wint-O-Green Lifesaver and me

This is how a histamine intolerant person thinks when they see a Lifesaver sitting abandoned on the table in its little protective wrapper:

“Oh look, a Wintergreen Lifesaver. Wow, I’d really like that Lifesaver.” Long pause…stare at said Lifesaver…think about how in about a minute I’m going to feel when the chemicals someone else calls food hit my bloodstream…”Nah.”

These are the ingredients in that little Lifesaver:

INGREDIENTS:SUGAR, CORN SYRUP, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, CITRIC ACID, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, COLORS (RED 40, YELLOW 5, BLUE1).

Any wonder why humans have health issues?

    This is too funny in that I recently had the same experience with the same item. It happens a lot, and not just with Life Savers.

    All around me—us—are tiny little reminders (and some not-so-tiny ones) of what we cannot, should not eat.

    As you aptly pointed out, no on should eat the above. Talk about a poison pill. No, thanks. I’ll pass!
