T.G.I. Friday’s Cheddar and Bacon Chips
October 30th, 2015
“No bacon whatsoever,” wrote a TINA.org reader who surveyed the ingredients on the back of the bag. Indeed, TINA.org found that the word “bacon” does not appear once among the more than 30 listed ingredients, which led with soybean oil and/or sunflower oil. “How can you claim ‘more bacon’ when there is no bacon!?!”
Good question, reader. Maybe more accurate product packaging would have read bacon flavored in the same way some fruit snacks are labeled fruit flavored.
In any event, if it’s real bacon you’re after, label this bag of chips T.G.I. Fail.
