I’ve recently begun to notice that 7-11’s products, like food and Slurpee’s taste a lot like a bunch of artificial chemicals. And my tendency is to associate that with the negative.
But, what about high fructose corn syrup? That’s artificial, isn’t it? And I don’t think the taste of sodas which use it is bad. In fact, I prefer it over the taste of aspartame and other diet soda ingredients. In other words, I don’t really care about the difference between sugar and high fructose corn syrup and I don’t intuitively think the corn syrup I’d bad. So why do I think that other chemical tasting food is bad?
Is that justified?
