Hands off our Kit Kats!

BlackCatYawning

Because of the micro-meddling of the UK’s public health gurus, Nestle will change their recipe for Kit Kats in order to reduce the saturated fat content from 7.2g to 6.4g

If the taste of this well-loved snack changes, then The Humankind will just resort to deep-frying them in dripping, just as they do with Mars Bars!

There are unintended consequences when the Thought Police patrolling the “Responsibility Deal” try to meddle with the little decisions that people should make for themselves.

That’s all.

  1. Hands off our Kit Kat’s indeed WD!

    It would be wise for PHM Jane Ellison to update her knowledge on the ishoo of saturated fats.

    Interesting article on ‘Saturated fat is not the major issue’ at the BMJ here: http://www.bmj.com/content/347/bmj.f6340

    And a very interesting meta-analysis on the ‘Use of dietary linoleic acid for secondary prevention of coronary heart disease and death…’ here (also at BMJ): http://www.bmj.com/content/346/bmj.e8707?rss=1

    Once our dear friends have a light bulb moment at both the Health and Thought Police HQs, well the notion becomes fixed…

    Anna :o]

  2. When Nestle tried to stop production of their condensed milk, there was such an uproar in Scotland that they relented. It’s the key ingredient in toffee/tablet and other sweeties laced with calories. Somehow we all survived it..

  3. Palm Oil Not a Healthy Substitute for Trans Fats. Kit Kat is switching to palm oil. http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/pr/2009/090415.htm
