Where's the fruit?

Deceptive marketing and food labeling practices has been a topic of much discussion recently although it's likely to have been going on for much longer than we are willing to admit.
If you are a cereal lover and you are trying to support healthy nutritional habits you might want to check out the recent investigative story about  Total Blueberry Pomegranate Cereal. Read this startling investigative report on General Mills and Total Cereal:
Why am I not surprised that investigations revealed that the public is being sold cereals that contain artificial coloring chemicals, 8 different types of sweeteners (including sucralose) and low-cost vegetable oils such as soybean and corn oils? Of course conventional wisdom says, read all labels. If you can't pronounce the ingredients, leave it on the shelf!
