Have you seen the funny commercial with the young guy sharing a Coke Zero with his grand-dad and the boy tries to explain what it is and the old geezer goes into a rant about what he knows?? Well, after trying a Coke Zero, I find that commercial to be mocking the old man for not realizing it is a diet drink. But that aside, it is an okay diet drink. I have tried Coke and Sprite Zero lately and they are a nice change. I rarely get a regular soda now but will get one of these when I can.
Of course, now science says that fake sugar can make you fat because your body can’t tell the difference.
Bruschetta Burger at Applebee’s
I like Applebee’s burgers and usually get the Cowboy burger with BBQ sauce. Last week I tried the Bruschetta (please, people, “sch” in Italian is always a hard sound) Burger and loved it. If the Romans had invented the hamburger, this is what it would be. Focaccia bread, pesto and diced tomatoes, mozzarella cheese…these are a few of my favorite things. Really good. If you aren’t into Italian type stuff, it may sound wierd, but still give it a try.
French Twists by Barry’s Bakery
These things are goooood. And get this: Non Dairy, No Butter, No Cholesterol, No Eggs, No Yeast, and Low Sodium and only 60 calories a piece. How about that?! They are light, flaky, crispy and sweet. We have only tried to Original, which is cinnamon, but there are many others.
