  1. This is a step in the right direction. I just visited Jason’s Deli who has made the commitment for the entire menu (except drinks) to contain NO msg, NO high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), and NO artificial trans fats. They are very close to replacing HFCS at the soda fountain with cane sugar. If you would like to vote on the subject just go here.

    Currently 72% of the voters are in favor of removing HFCS from the soda fountain.
