Cranberry Soft Chews

Everyday Cranberry Soft Chews beg the question: Is it really so $!# hard to drink a glass of juice? On the other hand, chews do have a certain appeal (beyond the pleasure you get from chowing on something chewy & sweet). One nugget provides a day’s worth of this or that – basically a more indulgent form of a vitamin. And wouldn’tchew rather see pharmaceutical cos. invest in stuff like chews, rather than all the horrid drugs they’re pushing? Anyway these cranberry chews = 15 cals and the top-3 ingreds are sugar, corn syrup, & cranberry fruit powder ("Cran-max brand" which sposedly uses 34 pounds of cranberries to produce one pound of cran-max)

This reminds me of the chocolate calcium chews that they sell, but Twisted D has the right idea, just eat the bones!
(I did the soda vs pop survey, but we called all carbonated drinks "tonic".)

You've all seen the new Ulmer Scale and who's on top again? Who? WHO? You bet your ass it's me. Hoo-RAH! There's nothing I can't do, and disputing my power is a fruitless act (not unlike these cranberry things). An example: See how i can gently lull Katie into a quiet, safe place. Do you see Brad Pitt or Angel-O Jolly on this list? Hell no. They're complete FAKES. This PROVES it. I hear they're trying to have a baby. If they even think about having a baby in the near future I will send them to a QUIET, SAFE PLACE. (But, rumors have it that he's gay, so that's probably not possible anyway.)

(Clairevoyant, whoever in god's name you might be, I wasn't talking about you. I have no idea - and no interest - as to the status of your saliva.)

Paris,
If you'll follow the thread of the comments here, you'll find that I directed my pithy remarks to Soofsayer and to The Twisted One. I know that you're intellectually challenged, but even you could have figured out that I wasn't interested in addressing you. (Perhaps you were too busy studying your Mother Teresa script?)

I'm wondering why the hell anyone would want to chew their cranberry juice. Don't get it.

I don't care for sweet drinks and wouldn't mind chewing my cranberries instead. Right now I get all my cranberry goodness just by eating the dried ones. I doubt it gets much better than that.

However, my grandmother was diabetic and wasn't allowed to have cranberry juice (this was before they came out with all those fancy artifically sweetened ones) and she had trouble swallowing pills so instead of making her eat cranberry sauce with everything, this might have been a nice option.

Cybele volunteers such a polite, ladylike explanation. (But I think Passing Through must be of the male persuasion! Otherwise he would know that cranberry juice is often recommended to women seeking to avoid urinary tract infections.)

After 10 days in Tuscany eating real, slow food, it's reassuring to see this country is still manufacturing this kind of junk nutrition.

BK's Blog, welcome back! We'll try not to hate you (too much) for having been in Tuscany while we were stuck here.

glad "someone" pointed out that in New England we said "tonic" and never heard of "pop".
cybele, you didn't catch the appearance of sugar as one of the first ingredients?
Not sure that clairev is "whoever in god's name"
just read about Tom's childhood and now I understand!!

I see dog mentions on this blog but no links to cats. If you were more cat-friendly, I think you'd get more fans on your blog.

WHAT? SCREW CATS.

There's a B-52's song on the radio that's related to our resident mediums. Can they guess what it is?

would it be Planet Claire? (i've been there, and it's a pretty hot place!)
(certainly wouldn't be Planet Soof!)

What a lucky guess.

"Planet Claire"
She came from Planet Claire
I knew she came from there
She drove a Plymouth Satellite
Faster than the speed of light

Planet Claire has pink air
All the trees are red
No one ever dies there
No one has a head

Ahhhahhhahhahh

Some say she's from Mars
Or one of the seven stars
That shine after 3:30 in the morning
WELL SHE ISN'T!

Wow. WOW!

You guys, and the Twisted Dog, need to find a room...
