  • seriously, What were our parents thinking?

  • Everyone.

  • I'm Rebecca and welcome to watch Mojo.

  • Today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 food facts that will ruin your childhood.

  • New Caprice on strawberry kiwi flavor the latest liquid.

  • That means we're looking at some of the more shocking food facts about items marketed to kids back in the day.

  • They still look delicious, but our adult brains just can't process.

  • How are parents?

  • Let us eat this crab anyway.

  • Let's get to the list hundreds of fortune so you can put your money Number 10 Heinz Easy scored this product introduced the world to green ketchup.

  • Oh, sorry, blast in Green Trick.

  • You read some funny stuff.

  • The green hue was a tie into the first Shrek movie released in 2001.

  • But Heinz, Easy scored also came out in other wild colors from awesome orange toe funky purple.

  • What you may not have known, but probably should've guessed, was that these ketchups were so processed they were no longer allowed to be called tomato ketchup.

  • This is because in order to achieve these vibrant neon shades, all the red coloring had to be eliminated from the tomatoes and replaced with a whole lot of food coloring number nine fruit roll ups.

  • Given that the label reads made with real fruit, you'd think that for roll up flavors like strawberry would be made from, you know, strawberries well, we're here to ruin your childhood, remember?

  • So no, there are actually no strawberries in your strawberry fruit roll up, and the actual fruit content is minimal for roll ups are actually made from concentrated pear juice and corn syrup.

  • Since fruit concentrate sacrifices most of the fiber and a substantial percentage of nutrients found in whole real fruit, we say the rial fruit claim on the box is paper thin.

  • Number eight Billy Bear Sausage slices.

  • Yeah, it's baloney and poor quality.

  • Baloney of that, a quick read of the Billy Bear label reveals it's a mixture of 66% pork and 34% well, nothing your body needs more of, that's for sure.

  • It's a scrumptious mixture of pork fat, P starch, corn, sugar and sodium nitrate yum.

  • And while thankfully you will rarely see this product in stores anymore, we all know that the Internet is forever, and so luckily, we can look back in horror that this monstrosity ever existed to begin with and that our parents thought it was a good idea for us to eat it.

  • Number seven Oreo O's Cereal It is perfectly normal to take Oreo cookies and dunk them in a tall glass of milk, but for breakfast and we're gonna have to go with a big old no.

  • Cookies are great for a snack every now and then, but they're not supposed to replace the most important meal of the day.

  • And why not?

  • You may ask part of a complete breakfast.

  • Well, it's a total sugar bomb.

  • For one, Oreos weigh in at a whopping 11.45 grams of sugar.

  • In just one cup, you'd probably be better off with straight up milk and cookies.

  • To be honest, at least Oreo cookies are made from wheat flour.

  • While this cereal is corn based breakfast number six Lunchables.

  • There are many issues we could take with Lunchables, like there's short lived, maxed out trays that, on top of having incredibly unhealthy food, came with a Tandy bar and sugar water.

  • But we're a bit more concerned with the meat that's been packaged in these variety packs since day one.

  • It's no stretch to say that it is a tad dubious when the makers marketing materials describe the ham as quote formed.

  • Informed it is with five different types of sodium and mechanically separated chicken and pork.

  • For the record, actual meat doesn't have that much sodium ever.

  • It's great.

  • You know why?

  • Because it's like lunch on Lee.

  • Ah, lot smaller.

  • Thank you very much.

  • Way go Number five hubba bubba bubble tape.

  • Remember how much fun it used to be trying to jam all six feet of this wonderful product in your mouth that wants to impress your friends?

  • Yeah, no us, either.

  • Anyway, having six feet of gum to play around with sure was fun.

  • But there are a few reasons it was better avoided.

  • First is the fact that, of course, it's packed with sugar.

  • Second, it also contains B H T or a beautiful ated hydroxy, an insult to maintain freshness.

  • While B HT is a fairly common preservative, it's also been linked to cancer.

  • Having said that, it is FDA approved, and the evidence that it causes cancer in rats is quote limited.

  • Still, it might make you think twice bubble tape.

  • Six feet of delicious bubble gum.

  • How much can you handle?

  • Number four Chicken nuggets.

  • Damn you, Jamie Oliver!

  • Damn you!

  • For ruining our childhoods.

  • We would have been perfectly happy continuing to chow down on our beloved chicken nuggets.

  • But no.

  • In a viral video, the celebrity chef demonstrated how fast food chicken nuggets are supposedly made by turning skin and bones into a pink sludge.

  • Because this has got loads of connective tissue and things that really aren't made.

  • To be honest, you've got put loads of stuff in it.

  • McDonald's defended their nuggets, stating that they're made from breast meat.

  • But when Mickey D's did release actual footage of how their nuggets were made a few years later, it wasn't exactly appetizing.

  • Ignorance is bliss, and now there's no going back.

  • Number three Sunny D When your orange juice is really just water and high fructose corn syrup, you're drinking Sunny D.

  • Okay, we got O.

  • J Sunny Delight before being relaunched in 2009.

  • It was only 5% real juice.

  • One serving can contain up to 27 grams of sugar.

  • That's more than two tablespoons of sugar.

  • How did we ever fall for this product, you ask?

  • Well, there used to be two styles Florida and California that we all assumed referred to the oranges used.

  • But the only substantial amounts of orange used in this product is the color on the label.

  • Think Capri Sun is any better, huh?

  • Afraid not.

  • One pouch contains over six pixie sticks worth of sugar number two Pop Tarts.

  • When you're a young child, nutrients are of the utmost importance to help you grow big and strong.

  • And that's why it's recommended.

  • The Children eat lots of fruits and veggies and limit excessive sugar intake.

  • Real fruit.

  • In fact, the recommended daily allowance of Sugar for Kids is 25 grams.

  • And so, if you've ever eaten a frosted pop tart as a child, you automatically consumed over 60% of your daily sugar allowance in one sitting.

  • Pop tarts are mostly made from cheap corn sugar as well corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup and dextrose.

  • And that's on top of the already added white sugar.

  • That's a whole lot of sugar.

  • Number one.

  • Cheez Whiz.

  • Next time you're snacking on Cheez Whiz, check out the ingredients list and count how many times you see the word cheese.

  • Then slowly put down the jar and cautiously step away from it.

  • According to a craft spokesperson, Cheese isn't mentioned in the ingredients because they decided to list the parts of cheese instead.

  • And, oh yeah, they changed their ingredients and there's less cheese in it.

  • Now we're thinking they mean hardly any.

  • Then again, zero is also less so.

  • Maybe that's possibility to what you're actually dipping into is a mix of way milk and vegetable oil.

  • Mmm.

  • For some reason, I have been craving cheese whiz for months, and I have yet to satisfy that craving because, like nothing really satisfies it other than Cheez Whiz.

  • Anyway, which of these food facts devastated you the most?

  • Which food do you still eat?

  • I don't know.

  • Let us know in the comments, or come tell me on Twitter or Instagram at Rebecca Britain.
