ds is allergic to cows milk, so imagine my delight (yes my life is this sad and empty) when i found Goats variety Babybel in the supermarket this afternoon. ds was just putting some in his mouth when I read the small print: Goats variety babybel is 10% goats milk, rest is cows!!!!!!!!!!! it should say goats flavour shouldn't it??
if he was properly allergic, it could be awful. i have a massive problem that it seems to me that they're targeting parents who give their children a cows milk free diet...i'm so cross about it...almost cross enough to write to them/waitrose...
Thought from the title that this thread was going to be about those blasted red wax strips that get glued to your floors
You would think that something calling itself "goats' variety" would be 100% goats'. I'm intrigued as to what the point of it is, if it's only 10%. Does it have a noticeably different flavour, especially to child consumers? Or is it just a ploy to get extra shelf space in the supermarket?
Nutella is another one - mostly peanut oil - but that never gets mentioned in the adverts or one the front of the pack when they are going on about hazelnuts.
I think that is shocking about the goats milkish cheese. I found a soy cheese and was really excited but then discovered that the soy just replaces the fattier component of the cheese and there is still milk to flavour.
