What Is It?

I am going to post a list, every month, of ingredients.  These ingredients are found in a common packaged food item.  Tell me what you think it is and in a few days I will reveal who is right.

Here is our September item:

Ingredients: WATER, CORN SYRUP, HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL (COCONUT AND PALM KERNEL OILS), HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, LESS THAN 2% OF SODIUM CASEINATE (FROM MILK), NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, XANTHAN AND GUAR GUMS, POLYSORBATE 60, SORBITAN MONOSTEARATE, BETA CAROTENE (COLOR).

    Thanks to everyone that participated, hope this was fun!
