Test Your Ingredient Panel Literacy

The online magazine Slate has a cool activity up right now - The Slate Ingredients Quiz.  The quiz presents the published ingredients list from various processed foods and offers you an opportunity to select the product corresponding to the ingredients.  Select the correct one, and the panel will turn green and allow you to continue with the quiz.  There are eleven questions in all, and the average Slate reader got a little better than 5 of the eleven correct.

I scored 9 correct out of 11.  Can you beat my score?  Click here to find out.

Eight out of eleven for me. This reminds me of the classic "Saturday Night Live" TV commercial parody which had an unctuous Chevy Chase asking "Is it a dessert topping? Is it a floor wax? New 'Shimmer' is both!"

8 outta 11. That one with the Ginger Ale and Coke & Pepsi threw me off. Caramel color in Ginger Ale? Didn't expect that.
