Kashi Go Lean - MALT

my first reaction to Kashi Go Lean high protein & fiber bar in a malted choc crisp flavor was, there is a god. i mean, after all, malt. But it’s rather a chore to eat. Maybe this is a regular deal w/ these hardcore protein/fiber bars... but this mofo has 49 frickin carbs (and I am not one of those carb-counter people). also 13gs protein & 270mgs potassium - possibly good 4 U but holy davy jones’ locker, this 290-cal sinker knocks you out while simultaneously jacking you up w/ bogus alternative sugars (evap cane juice, honey, brown rice syrup, barley malted syrup, pear juice concentrate). plus the malt flavor wasn’t very strong. I guess it’s meant as a meal replcemt? in any case: back to my old agnostic ways

I ALWAYS ASSUMED CATS WITH MALT ON THEIR BREATH WERE CONNOISSEURS OF SCOTCH. I ERRED IN GIVING THEM TOO MUCH CREDIT FOR THEIR GOOD TASTE.

Great links... as opposed to 'twisted.'

But tell Davy Jones to get with the program... Talk Like A Pirate Day was this past Tuesday.

Arrrgghhhh, matey!

I think a "Kashi Go Lean" - LITE is in order.... Although, sounds like it would go good with some French Vanilla Ice Milk.

BK: I hope you weren't parading around SFO dressed like a pirate in anticipation of Talk Like a Pirate Day. If you were, it's no wonder people were photographing you on your Segway.

TG: Based on the number of carb grams, it out to be billed as a two-meal replacement. That's about twice what the ADA recommends per meal.

Ay yes, Kirk, my mate BK made a fine pirate, coverin' more territory on his good ship Segway than I covered raiding and plundering ships for 11 long years!

T.G., have you ever thought about starting another blog on a different topic? I have some suggestions for you, if you're facing a shortage of ideas.

How about a blog about people who have "ideas for different topics" for bloggers?

Maybe you could call it, say, "I am a busybody who is too lazy to start a blog on my own"?

Hey I got it: How about a blog where you just have comments? That would save T.G. a lot of trouble and she could devote all her time to explaining the drinks they serve at Starbucks.

Let me segue (I LOVE that word) in with that mocha just to say...

It's Rum & Coke Friday!

Ciao!
