Taking out the HFCS

I'm so glad our society is catching on to the fact that high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is no good. Even better, food companies are starting to listen! I've noticed several products advertising that they are no longer using HFCS in their products or either they are making alternate products not using HFCS.

Hunt's Ketchup has completely removed HFCS. Since a lot of kids really like ketchup, this is a great thing and I hope other ketchup makers will follow their lead. Gatorade has also removed HFCS from their products. I see on their Web site that they also have a natural product available, but only available in select Whole Foods. I hope it catches on because I hate that they use artificial colors.

What products have you noticed making the switch?
