Food companies quietly dropping GMO ingredients

NPR has an interesting article about brands quietly dropping genetically modified ingredients. One would think this would be a huge selling point for brands and that they'd be shouting this information from the rooftops, but according to the story, they're not:

General Mills' original plain Cheerios are now GMO-free, but the only announcement was in a company blog post in January. And you won't see any label on the box highlighting the change. Grape Nuts, another cereal aisle staple, made by Post, is also non-GMO. And Target has about 80 of its own brand items certified GMO-free.

Megan Westgate runs the Non-GMO Project, which acts as an independent third-party verifier of GMO-free products, including Target's. She says her organization knows about "a lot of exciting cool things that are happening that for whatever strategic reasons get kept pretty quiet."

But just because they're testing the water doesn't mean most mainstream companies are ready to start publicizing their changes.

Nathan Hendricks, an agricultural economist at Kansas State University, says big food producers are trying to gauge what direction consumers are headed in. "Ultimately," he says, "these big companies aren't just friends with Monsanto or something. They want to make a profit, and they want to be able to do what's going to make them money." So they'd better have a product line in the works if consumer sentiment starts to shift more heavily toward GMO-free food.

Great deal on 5-gallon Rubbermaid water cooler: $12.99 at Menards!

As it's summer and I have camping on the brain, I thought I'd share a great deal I spotted in the Menards ad! This 5-gallon Rubbermaid water cooler is just $12.99 at Menards this week. It's $17.99 with a $5 mail-in rebate, limit 2.

I mention this because I was looking for a deal on these recently -- we have a 3-gallon water cooler that's suffering the same fate as our old tent -- not quite large enough for our family. And, I was looking at prices on these recently. Look and see how much this cooler is on Amazon right now..!

Seriously, go look. You could buy three of these coolers for the price of the one on Amazon! (Granted, the Menards cooler is green, not orange, and it's got a Menards logo on it... but it's the same cooler. For 1/3rd the price, I'll take it.)

Also, a note to those who shop in my neck of the woods: The Carpentersville store is sold out of these. (I've learned to call ahead!) Woodstock had 9 this morning.
