    I came across a blog that I wanted to share today. Here's a quote from it:

    "We heard from a friend who works for a well-known grocery store chain that it is regular practice for food manufacturers to gradually remove ingredients from their product once it becomes a “bestseller” in order to cut costs."

    This blogger goes on to discuss how one of her favorite seasonings, Old Bay, seems to have changed its recipe over the years - but is still advertising the "same great taste for over 70 years."

    Is this true? What do you think?

    The full article can be found here:

    I do think many products do this...as for the seasoning they may or may not...it could be her taste buds have changed. As you get older your taste buds actually change. You can handle more spice as you get older, and there are many things that I eat today that 15 years ago I hated.
