Never buy advertised food, or anything else for that matter.

Funnily enough, same goes for buying anything else.  Take cars.  Why do BMW and Mercedes advertise endlessly, for example, while some marques like Mazda hardly ever do?  The answer is that Mazdas are so reliable, they don’t need to advertise, personal recommendation sells them, while BMW and Mercedes have to sell on image.

As soon as a product is advertised, stop buying it, is a very good guide.  If something was that good, it wouldn’t need advertising.   With food and health, the message is totally true.   Eat butter, not margarine.  Eat natural fruit juice not sugar-loaded carton juice.  And so on, and so on.

    Hmmm. I drive a Beemer.

    Enjoy your beemer until it breaks down enough times to spoil the fun. I used to drive one and that was my experience. The third time I had to call the AA out, the man told me he attends BMW breakdowns with great regularity, and Mercedes. He said Police BMWs often break down during car chases!

    Don’t believe anything in advertisements

    Oh dear I just saw a Mazda advert for the new 6. I checked it out online. They’re all diesels now designed to pollute the air on our streets and cause cancer. I was right. The advert gave the game away.

    The 2.2 is, I mean, the one I currently have. The petrol/gasoline option no longer available.
