Functional oreos!

Thanks to Dr. Freedhoff for passing along his Weighty Matters blog post about Voortman’s new Omega-3 Zeer-Oh cookies. He got them in Canada. Maybe we will get to have them here soon? OK, so sugar is the first ingredient. But they are “Zero grams trans fat!”

No wonder consumers are increasingly confused about what foods are good for them.

Gee, can’t wait for the whole grain version.

I’d recommend adding a beige colored food dye to the pearly-white creme filled center, for that healthy whole grain look. Double Stuff anyone? ;)

I’m sure some AHA-supported dietician will be promoting them soon, perhaps in 100 calorie packs. Sheesh.
