I miss Waitrose

The U.K.'s Food Standards Agency is recommending a food labeling system that resembles a traffic light to help busy consumers identify which packaged goods are high in fat, sugar and salt. Grocers Sainsbury's and Waitrose have adopted the system, and Asda is expected to institute it soon, said the FSA. But most food manufacturers have opted for a label listing GDAs, or guideline daily amounts, of fats, sugar and nutrients.

I like this idea :)

I miss that juice from Waitrose...oh, and their bread. I heart Waitrose.

I don't think I like that idea. I don't read the labels now. But if I saw something with a big red dot that said high in sugar on all the candy bars I ate, that would make me sad.

The concept is good for some people, but not for me.
