$ new dark-choc prods have already hit 278 this year (279 if you count today’s blog item?) (and it's only sept!), compared to a total last year of 217
$ Sales of dark choc are up 40% this year, sez Ad Age, driven by reports that the antioxidants make it heart healthy
in that area, Nestle dark raisinets scores 2-for-1, cuz raisins have antioxidants too. this 11-oz foil package claims to have 7 servings, w/ 180 cal, 32 carbs, 8 grams of fat

The way I used to eat Raisinets, that would be 1,260 calories, 224 grams of carbs and 56 grams of fat.

Is it any wonder that Type II Diabetes is the "new" health epidemic?

Wasn't there a commercial campaign with singing raisins?

Nothing goes better with a glass of port than a highball filled to the rim with vodka.
