Some (hi, First Lady Michelle Obama) see it as a win, while others (looking at you, sugar industry) see it as an upset. (We’re in the former camp, because anything that means less ingredient deciphering — and therefore more time for sample eating — in the grocery store aisles is a win, right?) [The New York Times]
