News: Wonderful new products!

The creativity of junk food makers never ceases to amaze. Try these.

Thanks to Michele Simon for sending information about Engobi chips, infused with caffeine, and lots of it–140 mg of caffeine along with its 220 calories in a 1.5 oz serving. That’s twice as much caffeine as you get in Red Bull!

And thanks to Jessica Anderson for reading her airline magazines and running across the “Hollywood Cookie Diet.” Eat cookies; lose weight. What could be better?

Aren’t you happy to know about these?

Delighted! Now I can eat cookies and chips in the car on the way to work and eliminate the mess of spilling my coffee. Also, I can bring these products straight from home, can eliminate the few mminutes of stopping at the fast food place for breakfast. And, best of all, lose weight to boot! Yippee!! What more could a girl ask for?!

That cookie one is hilarious. First thing you see is “I lost 5 pounds in 3 days using the Hollywood Cookie Diet!”***

Of course there’s an asterisk. Because it’s a ridiculous idea for a diet. and oh, yeah, those results are “atypical”.
