I will now feel patriotic when I dump the extra spoonful on my cheerios

I pledge allegiance to the United States of Sugar and to the sweet things for which it stands, one nation under pure, fine-granulated, quick-dissolving sugar, indivisible, with liberty and sugar for all!
I know that sugar is true. I can’t live without sugar.

“You can’t live without sugar”. So very, very true!

Please read my comment above while listening to MoTab hum God Bless America in soft tones in the background.
One must take advantage of the opportunity to mingle one’s patriotism with one’s Mormonism and one’s sugarism.

And yet, how important was the production of sugar beets in the local mormon communities along the wasatch front for many years!
I spent a few summers thinning sugar beets on my Uncle’s farm in Idaho, so even though this ad plays on the patriotic angle of home production of sugar, I have a different view. Behind every scoop of sugar on your Cheerios (at least before high-fructose corn syrup) was some teenager with blistered hands, sunburned neck, and a crick in their back from having to bend over and hack at those ungrateful beets that grew too close together.
