    I wonder mostly one thing when I watch these videos that is what happens with all the food waste I mean they make so many batches in every step of the process of making anything so where does all the material go which is not they throw it or use it somewhere else?

    Unsure about the US version but they changed the Australian orange flavour about 2 years ago as well. It's more of a "fake" tic-tic orange flavour now, I like it better than what it was before but.
