Gen Z is like 28 at the eldest, I don't understand why people think we're still children.

"five fiscal years" is such an odd scale to me, perhaps to inflate the number versus a single fiscal year?

That's a different topic, you're moving the goalposts :P

Close, it's shitter

[-] isVeryLoud@lemmy.ca 2 points 3 days ago

Another good one I use! As well as AdNauseam and SponsorBlock, obviously :P

They always re-appear and I'm tempted to click on them, that's the main issue.

Oh on desktop it's not a problem, I use an extension to block shorts

I have YouTube Premium but I have to use ReVanced to block shorts because it's terrible for my ADHD. My mental health has improved ever since I ripped that fucker out of my life.

I want to control what I see, and this isn't even about them being paid anymore, it's just about forcing me to see what I don't want to see.

You make the claims, you provide the research.

The burden of proof is on you.

Ok, please provide your sources.

Today's culprit is... Jello's Chocolate Pudding! Oh wait, no, "pudding snacks", whatever in the label-regulation-dodging fuck that means.

Posting here because this has quickly become a very common shrinkflation tactic where the manufacturer substitutes fructose/sucrose in their main product with the cheaper aspartame and stevia and calls it "healthy". There is no sucrose-only version of this product anymore.

However, these shrinkflated products taste bitter, unsweetened and are completely unappetizing to me. So I end up having to look at labels very carefully (usually some thin text at the bottom of the label) to make sure they didn't sneak in some artificial sweetener.

The strangest part is I haven't seen or heard of anyone complaining about it, are we in the minority of people for who artificial sweeteners are bitter, like Cilantro that tastes like soap? Both me and my partner find it bitter and unappetizing in any product, but only I have the "cilantro gene".

I did find these articles on the topic:

I think they've been like this for a while though. Clearly a way to sneak out 2 cookies without the consumer noticing.
