Ingredients in the new KFC Krushem

Last week MacDonalds, this week KFC. Here are the listed ingredients of the new Caramel Crunch Krushem. (how I love it when they use a K when a C would be the appropriate letter!)

Semi skimmed milk, sugar, butter, skimmed milk powder, dried glucose syrup, emulsifier E477, E471, stabilisers, E466, E412, E407, E451, caramel sauce, glucose syrup, caramelised sugar syrup, sweetened condensed milk, flavour, colours, paprika and caramel, honeycomb pieces (sugar glucose, vegetable fat, maize starch, raising agent E500).

Apart from the fact that there is actually something called sweetened condensed milk (isn’t the whole point of condensed milk that it is filled with sugar anyway?) the amount of sugar in this… well it beggars belief to be honest. What is the point of top surgeons wanting a ban on butter, and the government wanting to ban smoking in doorways when this diabetes -in- a paper cup is allowed to be made.
