This first one hopefully doesn’t come as a shock but it’s sad to say that many people were and are actually fooled into believing that these come from a micro brewery. The clever artsy ad campaign must have been what did it.

3.Kashi

The fact that Kellogg’s owns Kashi isn’t the only reason to stop buying it. Read more here about why you should avoid Kashi at all costs. [Update: Kashi is in the process of becoming Non-GMO Project Verified . Don’t jump the gun though! Until a product bears the official Non-GMO logo, it’s most likely still chock-full of genetically modified ingredients. And keep in mind that they’re still owned by Kellogg’s who supports the GMO industry big-time.]
