This isn't much of a surprise to most of us, but what is news to me is the lengths food companies will go to describe these falsities in ingredient lists. Descriptions like "blueberry bits" and "blueberry flavored crunches" mean nothing more than food coloring, sugar, and flavoring. Worst example? Total Blueberry Pomegranate cereal, from General Mills, which contains neither blueberries nor pomegranates.
