Ass-partame

Recently, I came across a new product that is supposed to simulate the effect of a cappuccino all while adding boiling water to a powder. Sounds easy, right? In fact, it is. To top it off, the frothy concoction has little fat and very few calories.

But, there’s a problem: It’s made with aspartame.

The aspartame allows the drink to be low in fat and calories, but since it’s an artificial substance, it’s not particularly healthy for your system. And, I found that out the hard way.

After opening the package, pouring it into a cup, and adding the boiling water, the product did what it claimed to do and produce a frothy, coffee-like beverage. But, there was an aftertaste... while drinking it. It wasn’t bad, mind you, but unsettling.

What was even more unsettling was the following morning.

Since the body purges anything artificial out after a short period of time, that’s exactly what it did. And, it wasn’t pretty. There’s a reason why aspartame starts with ass because that’s the way that the story ends.

I feel that you may be referring to a product I already wrote about on my blog - the apparently ironically titled "General Foods International Coffees On The Go"? Is that what it was? I have a picture here:

Was it filled with foamy goodness?

Well, at least you realize that your shit DOES stink!
Lets see.. less calories and fat which also tastes pretty good, but a not desirable bowel movement. I'm rushing out to get me some! lol

Dr. Adrian Gross, the FDA’s own toxicologist, told Congress that “without a shadow of a doubt, aspartame can cause brain tumors and brain cancer…”

This is your brain on aspartame---CRASHED

Also you forget to add that it is pretty cheap to produce so companies will stick with it until government says something against.
