3WW 04/22/09



Oh delicious Fig Newtons! Although I took an oath to be skinny by bikini weather, here I am, indulging in your fine moist goodness. Fooled by your colorful packaging, your balloon like lettering describing Fruit Chewy Cookies, I was enamored by the claim that you were made with REAL FRUIT. It wasn’t until I squinted at your small print of ingredients that I realized your deceit.

    wow welcome to the blogging world, if this isn’t your first blog, and to 3WW

    Your post rang a bit too true as I just happened to find my way to Chick fil a –the best fried chicken in the world. Just strips and with “good fats” but still…

    Welcome, welcome.

    This entry is witty and gave me a good laugh. That it has elements of real ad language only adds to the absurd. Bravo.

    Oh that made me smile. So often we are taken in by claims that are untrue and yet we still eat and drink of the things that deceive us! Short but sweet and I enjoyed this piece.
