Skinnygirl Margaritas, gets the boot!
So what’s the skinny on Skinnygirl Margarita?
Former Real Housewives of New York City reality star Bethenny Frankel is going to have a lot of explaining to do since she was just dropped by Whole Foods this week after the chain denied her claim that the ingredients were “all natural.”
Is the skinny margarita…. really skinny? Find out the dirty!
Whole Foods has confirmed that they “had to stop selling” because “it contains a preservative that does not meet our quality standards.” Whole Foods says it is due to the use of a preservative known as sodium benzoate. Sodium Benzoate is commonly used in acidic foods such as salad dressings, carbonated drinks, jams and fruit juices.
Skinny girl responded by saying, “In order to keep the product as fresh as possible, an incredibly small amount of a very commonly used FDA-approved beverage preservative is added. Skinnygirl is made with as few ingredients as possible and its flavor ingredients are indeed natural.”
Well now you decide? Do you care that this alcoholic drink has a small amount of a preservative?
Guess its not that important to Frankel anyway, she reportedly sold Skinnygirl back in March of 2011 to Fortune Brands’ Beam Global for $120 million.
