As Robin reported in today's Morning Brew
, Gut Check's dear friends
at the Corn Refiners Association is trying to gain permission to market high fructose corn syrup as "corn sugar."
The cynic inside us doesn't begrudge the Corn Refiners Association this attempt at damage control, but we feel compelled to point out that, quite frankly, the name corn sugar sucks. We invite members of the association -- and you! -- to follow us after the jump for our suggestions.Update

, reports that the FDA already recognizes "Corn Sugar."
