Annals of “healthy” eating: Olive Garden
My friend and colleague Maya Joseph submits this entry for the category Annals of American “Healthy” Dining:
I was at an Olive Garden last night and, while I greatly appreciated the calorie labeling, which prevented me from ordering the 1,480 calorie entree I was hankering after, I was unsettled by the promotional materials urging us to order two entrees for the price of one (you’re supposed to take one home…).
She includes this link to the two-for-one offer (Oops. It’s no longer available. Whew).
Comment: OK, they offered customers a choice.
But unlimited breadsticks and two Fettucine Alfredos?
The mind boggles.
