When we go to the supermarket, we get to pick from a huge variety of products. What we didn’t know however is how limited our choice actually is. Pepsico for example owns KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Pepsi, 7UP, Tropicana, Lays, Doritos, Cheetos & Ruffles to name a few. Many products that compete are owned by the same corporation.

wow - who knew?? those annoying stickers on fruits and veggies tell you A LOT! 4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown, 5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified (GMO), and 5 numbers starting with 9 means they were organically grown (no pesticides or nasty GMOs)"

Starbucks - not GMO free as per their response to my question. See their response below. so sad to say goodbye to starbucks and sad that they couldn't just even suggest some of their products that might be GMO and some that should be non-GMO. SAD! :(

    Hello Amelia, Thank you for contacting Starbucks. While we understand that some customers may have a need to know specific ingredient information prior to consuming a product, unfortunately we are unable to provide more in-depth information than what is currently available in the ingredient statement on the website. If there are concerns about this product possibly containing an ingredient that you do not wish to consume, we would recommend that product not be consumed. Thanks again for writing us. I hope you have a Starbucks day! If you ever have any questions or concerns in the future, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Sincerely,

    Thank you for sharing! I was just thinking I should write to Starbucks since hearing they contribute funds to anti-GMO labeling. I figure their flavored syrups are from GMO sugar beets, but I'd rather support a local company who will answer my questions.
