  1. I totally agree, it’s insane to secure parents in the false security of giving their kids a “healthy” drink like that with such a tag line!…

  2. I’d like to say I was surprised but unfortunately this sort of thing is all too common here in the states. And when I was a kid I would have gone right for this and my parents probably would have given in and gotten it for me, figuring it was a “healthy” choice — which is a big part of the reason I was such a fat kid!
