Keep The Nanny State Out Of My Kitchen!

May 24, 2011

The nanny state in Denmark has banned Farley’s Rusks, Horlicks and Ovaltine, for God’s sake!

As usual, a government has declared that it knows best when it comes to what you can and cannot eat (we have the same idiocy going on here in BC over raw milk). Now, it is true we can only applaud their position on Marmite (I haven’t eaten it in more than 50 years and I can still remember that ghastly taste and smell!), but that’s beside the point.

I’m all for the full facts about nutrition and ingredients and whatever being made as widely available as possible. Beyond that, let the people decide, which they can literally at the market. Anything else is sheer arrogance.
