Mothers' Day 2013 - comic strip about artificial (and natural) food colors

Mother's day is tomorrow... and yes Haribo Quaxi (one of Baby Boo's favourite gummy candies) is colored with the blue-green alga Spirulina. I may even dare to say it TASTES like Spirulina algae (not a very nice taste). But it is fun to see the special and completely NATURAL blue-green colour of the little frogs... I discovered the use of these strange pigments after some friends bought Baby Boo some completely artificially coloured gummy candies with comments about the health damaging effect of the latter ('may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children'). Since then I started to watch and read very carefully all ingredients and comments on gummy candy packages...
