“It’s Not Organic, But It’s Made in Vermont”

March 16th, 2008

“What does that mean?” I asked DH who returned from a jaunt to Whole Foods where he was tasked with picking up some organic, fair trade chocolates.

“I don’t know! I’m in OrganicManiac Hell!,” he sighed in exasperation. “Doesn’t ‘Made in Vermont’ mean its good”?

What a brand image for the state! Kind of like “Paris fashion,” perhaps?

So I checked out the label on the Lake Champlain bunny he brought home. He’s right – it’s not organic, but there are no hydrogenated oils or corn syrup, and no preservatives.

Maybe it’s true – if it’s made in Vermont, it has to be good!

    Hee hee. Love that anecdote. And agreed, if there’s no extra junk in it, you’re better off — even if it’s not organic.

    Thanks for the comment, MamaBird! I figured someone would laugh with me. DH says he’s going to start a blog called “Life with OrganicMania” — Lynn

    Thank you for the nice comments on my nutrition series and offer to link. I liked your cheap plastic crap post! I feel that way when I walk in a convenience store and think, who would possibly want all this crap and after the novelty goes in five seconds, where’s it all going to end up?! Yeah, there. Best to you!

    Oh, some of the Cheap Plastic Crap ended up in my house today after we were given two goody bags – one for my 16-month-old! — Lynn
