Oxymorons contained in a frothy beverage

When Mr. Goat and I were at the Twins game a week ago I took the opportunity to have a root beer - which happens to be a special Twins kind of root beer - Killebrew.  Hahaha, get it, like Harmon Killebrew, the famous Twin player from the 1960s and 70s.


Mr. Goat and I split it and it was yummy.  Then we looked at the back.  Can you see the oxymoron?

Pure Natural Spring Water 
vs
High Fructose Corn Syrup

Pure Minnesota Honey
vs
Caramel Color 

My question:  Why bother listing things as "Pure" when everything else is fake?  Really Target Field?  Really? (Still, it was yummy). 

And yes I do know that it is soda and therefore crap, but again, why bother with the "pure" labels.  Are you trying to fool someone?
