Papa John's is removing high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) from its entire line of foods:

Out of curiosity, I went back to an ingredients document that PJ gave me in 2008 to see which of their products at the time contained HFCS. PJ no longer makes such a document available to the outside world and no doubt there have been changes in ingredients since 2008, but the items that had HFCS at that time included the following:

BBQ Sauce
Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce
Buffalo Dipping Sauce
Chipotle BBQ Sauce
Garlic Ranch Sauce
Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
Italian Dressing
Ranch Dipping Sauce

Notably, and to the best of my knowledge, PJ does not use HFCS in any of their dough recipes or parbaked crusts, or in their cheeses, their pizza sauces, and most of their meat (e.g., sausage and pepperoni) and other pizza toppings.  I don't know if there are any GMO issues with any of those items but I am sure that PJ is carefully studying that matter.
