Oatmeal in Chili!?!? WTF?
I ran by the grocery store to grab some chili for lunch. I thought that it would be a quick, less expensive, slow carb alternative. Reading through the ingredients, both Hormel and Wolf chili have "oatmeal" or "rolled oats" fairly high in the ingredients list.
I went over and bought some of the store's "gourmet" chili - no oats. Just crazy the stuff that turns up when you actually look for it.

I did the same thing. Thought Chili would be a good low carb alternative... After eating a few bites, I noticed it tasted sweet. Checked the ingredients and sure enough... high fructose corn syrup. Same thing happened with stewed tomotoes. Now I check EVERYTHING and prefer to just make it myself, that way I know what is in it!
