2011-2012[edit]

Haven't there been some newer commercials and such that are pro-syrup that could be elaborated on more? InfernalAngel00 (talk) 08:04, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Other countries?[edit]

I was just wondering if there've been similar things in countries other than America? HFCS is used worldwide, but the article only has examples from the USA. 109.246.242.180 (talk) 17:47, 14 May 2012 (UTC)

HFCS is used primarily in the US, because it is cheaper than sugar. In Europe it is vice versa, the local variants of US products are made with sugar. The Situation might change in 2016/17 when the so called "sugar quota" will be dropped. But there is a similar situation in regard to the public image of sugar. In germany manufacturers of organic food and drinks often use cane sugar instead of beet sugar, although it has to be imported. There is no physiological difference between them, but lots of customers consider cane sugar to be tastier or even healthier. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.115.51.60 (talk) 17:35, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
