    I guess the chef could be using a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">natural additive, like spinach</span hide>.

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Charlotte added Chlorophyllin, a natural (ie not artificial) green food coloring found in Chlorophyl.
    Charlotte is probably unconcerned that its use is not FDA approved.</span hide>

    Steve,

    I don't think the FDA has any jurisdiction in the Magic Forest, which is in darkest Kent, and therefore in England.

    That is terrific, then it would be an acceptable natural additive!

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Based on this page and this page, I would guess they are allowed in the EU, but they look a bit artificial to me. Chlorophyll itself however, looks perfectly acceptable.</span hide>

    They look "artificial"?. I wouldn't have thought that was an issue with green eggs since the purpose was to make them look "artificial" (to me green is not "natural".) <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Al Bear's breakfast treat

    I wondered why Al Bear seemed to have wisps of white spaghetti draped over his bonce - he really needs to be viewed with a dark skin!

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> PS - did Charlotte cook and serve the eggs <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">under a green light</span hide>?

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> Why should Charlotte squeak after she'd made JB's bubble?
