    Apparently the HFCS is way cheaper to add to stuff than sugar. It's way worse for you too. I won't touch margarine, it's one molecule away from being plastic! I'll have my real butter in moderation. We literally sat at a restaurant the other night watching the margarine on a very hot baked potato NOT melt......scary

    I'm thinking I either have a thyroid problem or a problem with yeast or gluten...or is that the same thing?

    Not sure.

    I have a thyroid issue. I take meds for it but I think I need to have it re-evaluated. I have this issue with my head sweating, it's embarrassing but the pills are doing nothing to stop it. I'm sitting here in my air conditioned office fine from the waist down and my head is sweaty right now :rolleyes008:

    I dont like marmite either. I tried it when I was a child and thought it was disgusting and tried it again when I was older and still didnt like it.

    Its true you either love it or hate it.

    I think the bread is sweet too. The bread over here isnt as sweet.

    I love the pretzels and I cant wait to get one when I hit the parks the first day and the funnel cakes are to die for. :p015:

    Buy the bakery bread instead of the commercial bread, Mick. It's still probably a bit sweeter than in the UK, but you can taste the difference between bakery and commercial bread. :)


    Sun Maid--the name of the raisin company.

    Johnie, I have that same thing! I have Hashimoto's so take thyroid medication. Doesn't do much for the persperation let me tell you. It can get pretty embarrassing, too.

    'Catz, wheat is the grain, of course. Gluten is an "aspect" of the grain (it's what you develop when you knead bread, makes it tender and light) so in some ways is wheat, yes.

    I hate margarine and refuse to believe something man-made that tastes that icky is good for you. I rarely use butter, but I will use it (not right now with the diet and all). Olive oil is my 'fat' of choice. :yes:

    Yeah Sun Maid bread - I remember that was really nice. Except now you're going to tell me it's got that icky corn syrup in it. :(

    So is that stuff used instead of sugar?

    At least you know where you stand with sugar - all that artificial stuff is a bit scary. That's why I drink regular Coke here and not diet, except that when I go over to you guys it looks like I can't even drink that.

    You can not make clotted cream hun. Its local to devon and cornwall. Luckily i live in cornwall although you can proberly get it in most shops in the country now. I would do a seacrch to see if you can buy it in USA. I would offer to send you some but it needs to be chilled which means it can not be sent.
    I hate marmit, it yuck.
    I love to buy pretzles, mickey coconuts and lots of maple syrup. Oh nearly forgot i love the carrot cake in Walmart. Best i have ever tasted.
    We always buy the soda bread. We bought some white bread last year and it was more like sponge.

    Johnie...my head sweats too. Always has. which is why if I wear hats I don't take them off...it's not just hat hair lol.

    As for the High fructos Corn syrup...that nasty beastie is being banished from our home and we will not be getting anythin but water or unsweeten tea when we go out...eveybody in this town has splenda anyway on the tables lol.

    I'm also banishing Gluten. Avoided it for 2days now and I can feel a difference already. I am however still going to the Doc next tuesday. If the thyroid is going bad then I will need help...but whatever has gone wrong I want it fixed.

    I can buy clotted cream in Fresh Market and sometimes Whole Foods. Do you have either of those stores there, 'Catz? It's nice to use instead of butter, but only sparingly! :eek:

    My Aunt was the same way Johnie. More women that you realize, eh?

    I wear hats to keep the sun off, or when it's bitter cold (obviously not here) or there is a cold wind blowing that will hurt my ears (usually use a headband style then).
