British politician Tessa Munt is up in arms over new rules on British jam, saying her country's plan to lower the minimum sugar content of the fruity spread threatens to turn a much-loved treat into "gloopy sludge." She said:
"I think this is going to be the end of the British breakfast as we know it. If these regulations change, we'll end up with something much more like the French and German product — and worse still the Americans — where they have things a bit like a fruit butter or a fruit spread. It's dull colors that don't taste the same and they certainly don't last as long."
