    Global starvation is caused by corrupt leadership.

    Kids in America couldn't eat this stuff... raising them in bubbles has many with bad peanut allergies.

    Too many people and not enough food. Not an easy problem. Arab Spring is said to have been caused by increased cost of food. I notice at the local market and other stores food is up. We have the largest growing area in the world basically the Missouri-Mississipi drainage system. Maybe we can use food to buy the things we need.

    Wow, a lot of negatives here today.
    I left a restaurant the other night and was shocked at how much food is left
    on our plates. And I tried to imagine how much food we waste here in the US on any given day and throughout the year.
    I wish I had some answers, but I suspect there would be enought to feed a lot of hungry people here in our own country and around the world.

    @ Ms Molli
    Kids get too much sugar for cap'n crunch, soda and twinkies so we now associate sugar with poor health. Sugar, however, is a simple carbohydrate and is important for malnourished children. Your body needs sugar but just like anything, it shouldn't be in excess. Just google malnourishment and sugar and you will find more info.

    Who would have thought that something so simple could save lives AND create jobs? This is a great food - I just hope that the peanut crops have not been destroyed where this product is produced. I would hate to think that people will starve because peanuts are so expensive.

    I love peanut butter - who doesn't?

    Why is it necessary to include sugar as an ingredient, particularly for children who have likely never had sugar before?

    Silver bullet for who? So what replaces this supplement when children or adults won't eat it anymore? I do hope they are giving it to adults too, the children need the parents as much as they need this fudge. Or is it a feed the children starve the adults type of program? Why isn't it in our schools and homeless shelters? We have so many starving children in the US we must have this fudge for sale in our schools, or will that interfere with private food providers ripping off education funds.

    Or, scam artist people just want us to think we have starving children to get money.
