As I walked down the grocery aisle I wasn't looking for pudding, but the
package caught my eye. The clean look of the white packaging and the
flavor...CARAMEL LATTE. I'm gonna have to try this, I thought. But...
being the nerd that I am, I started reading the back of the package.
12 MG OF CAFFEINE PER CONTAINER. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT
INTENDED FOR CHILDREN OR THOSE SENSITIVE TO CAFFEINE.
If this pudding isn't for children, why is it sitting right beside pudding
that is okay for children? Shouldn't the sentence about the children
and the caffeine be on the front of the package instead of the back?
The front of the package has the perfect wording. It brags about the
pudding having milk as the #1 INGREDIENT and how it has NO
PRESERVATIVES. Funny, there's no mention on the front about the
fact that children aren't supposed to eat it.
No matter how good a product looks or sounds, be sure you read the
back of the package as well as the front.
