    You've eaten them......the little colored things on top of cookies and doughnuts. They drop all over the place.

    So yesterday, I was shopping and was going to get some to put on cookies (yes, I bake......you want to make something of it. ). Anyway, I made the mistake of actually reading what was in them..........

    Carnuba Wax. I know it's supposed to be good to make my car shiny, but do I really want to eat it. I also found out that those little colored sugar crystals have it in them too.

    When you meet someone better than yourself, turn your thoughts to becoming his equal. When you meet someone not as good as you are, look within and examine yourself....

            HEY!! When at home, I sit to pee... it's easier to do that than to clean my ricochets and splatters. And I don't bake!

              Don't you have a wife to clean that?

                That candy "Nerds" has carnuba wax, too. In fact, you'd probably be surprised how many candy foods have it in them.

                  Oh goodie, another "can you believe what you're eating thread!"

                  Well, carnuba wax is from palm trees and comes in different grades, depending on what it is used for, food or car waxing. Probably won't hurt you, since we have probably all eaten gallons of it already.

                  On the other hand, confectioners glaze, which is used to make some candies shiny, think M&M's, hard-shell almonds,etc., are covered in BEETLE JUICE, also known as SHELLAC! Little bitty beetles secrete shellac to hold their eggs on tree twigs. This BUG glue is harvested and used to make candy!

                  Now, all together....ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

                    And furthermore, there is nothing more appealing than a man who can cook and feel comfortable in the kitchen. Even better if he can do dishes in a pinch!

                    And the world's most famous chefs are all men, so it's an honorable and manly occupation!

                      Handy to know the next time I get a little hungry while waxing the wife's car!

                        My husband is a gourmet cook. He LOVES to cook. He doesn't make any desserts which is good because I just found out I have diabetes. But he makes wonderful entrees. Some men, like my husband and maybe Niteshift, cook because it's relaxing.

                          LOL I cook at times, or is it me pretending to cook I can never figure it out but either way I do a good job at it. I cook to fulfill a need and that need is my tummy. It needs to be filled LOL

                            Stone That's cruel. She's a wife, not a cleaning lady.

                            On the carnuba wax subject, if it hasn't killed anyone after all these years I'm not going to start worrying about it now. Or is it a new additive?

                              I thought the wife was the cleaning lady until the kids got old enough to be trained to clean everything so you did not have too. I will say that I do my share of cleaning so do not jump all over me too badly LOL.
