This week's food is applesauce. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised that it has HFCS in it, but I was. I guess I wouldn't have been surprised if it had been one of the funkier twists on applesauce - like cherry flavored applesauce, or Scooby Doo! (from Mott's) applesauce - but it was just regular applesauce. Both Mott's and Mussleman's regular (or original, depending on the brand) applesauce contain HFCS. Go figure. HFCS is the second ingredient listed - bleh! The unsweetened applesauce does not have HFCS, and there are probably other brands that sweeten using cane sugar, but if you're looking for a HFCS-free applesauce, beware and read those ingredient labels!
