Artifical Colours…

Posted on: November 11, 2010

On twitter we were having a discussion about the colours of clinkers, a much loved lollie/chocolate.

Carly linked to the Cadbury site which sited 102, 123 and 133 as the colours used.

To find out what the colours were exactly I did a bit of digging and found this site which gave me this information about the colours used:

Colour 102
Tartrazine
A real Long list. In summary, causes Asthma, concentration & learning  difficulties, depression, swelling of lip and tongue, insomnia, not reccomended for children and carinogenic

Colour 123
Amaranth
Hyperactivity, hives, asthma, rhinitis, carcinogenic, may affect reproduction, liver, kidney.

Colour 133
Brilliant Blue
Not Recommended for children. Causes  Asthma, Hive, Hay Fever, allergic reactions. Carcinogenic.

So yeah, never eating clinkers again…
