Dark Chocolate: Heart-Healthy?

Oh, please . . . don't try to tell me that dark chocolate candy is in any way heart-healthy. Blah blah blah "flavonoids" blah blah blah.

Have you ever tried to eat dark chocolate without using about a metric ton of sugar per ounce of chocolate?

For a huge segment of the population (including Filbert, but Snookums not so much), "It's the carbs, stupid!"

Go ahead and enjoy dark chocolate, but good luck convincing me that it's good for you.

Cola Wars

We picked up a 12-pack of the new Pepsi One last week in South Dakota, and as much as I'm a Coke guy, I have to say the Splenda and acesulfame-potassium-sweetened Pepsi product is pretty good. It had the usual yucky Pepsi Cola aftertaste, with very little artificial sweetener taste. Overall, it was very much like "real" Pepsi, in fact.

Now, I can't wait for Coca-Cola Zero to come out in June. It's supposed to taste a lot like Coke Classic. They're also planning to roll out a Splenda-sweetened Diet Coke, but retaining DC's unique taste which has legions of fans (including my very own Snookums).

It looks like it will be a tasty summer 2005 for cola lovers.

A-B rolls out Budweiser Select nationwide
Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. is rolling out its Budweiser Select beer nationwide Monday in response to consumer demand for variety.
Budweiser tries again for the low-carb beer market. Haven't they heard that low-carb is dead? I'm looking forward to trying it . . . maybe it will actually have some taste, unlike Michelob Ultra.
