How, I ask you

can Kellogg's Frosted Flakes recommend on the side of its box that people eat healthy snacks??

Healthy, like, oh, frosted flakes? Please!

Or are they recommending that people not buy their sugary cereal?

This seems like irony or hypocrisy or brazenness or something...

You can OD on them, though--I was just saying that to miafedup They lure you in with the sugary quick fix, but then, then make you feel not quite right.

yeah slim fast is bad too. I have had that sometimes and I crash cause it has a lot of sugar.

It's a legal disclaimer so they don't get sued
(just like Mars writes 'we support a balanced diet')
Still...insane!

Oh Joybon, I'm so glad you're still around. I was just thinking of you the other day. Isn't it funny that you can miss someone when the sum total of your relationship is just a few lj entries? But it's true!

It is odd, isn't it? I've missed everyone terribly, I'm locked out you see and can only read public posts (so thank you dear for your lovely, thoughtful public posts).

Hopefully thesis draft will be finished soon.

Good luck w/thesis! Now see, if I had my imaginary Internet cafe slash used bookstore up and running, you could go in there and have something to eat and sit quietly for a while working on it--or escaping from it, either way.

But Kellogg's cereals ARE healthy asakiyune!! They add all sorts of extra vitamins and minerals to make them so!

We just won't talk about the low fibre content and the huge amount of sugar in every bowl....

Hmm. Kinda like the tobacco companies "anti-smoking" campaigns, isn't it? Teens shouldn't smoke but adults? Puff away on our cancer sticks, it's a free country!

I could really, seriously use me some frosted flakes now.

I had a few handfuls as a snack yesterday... but they made me feel kinda sick afterward. It was good adverse conditioning.

I read a milkybar label wich said "a tasty way to milk goodness"...SCANDAL!

Oh... And another...the kellogs diet, eat two bowls of kellogs "special" K a day and a main meal and you loose weight. ERRR yea.. but you will be starving and your teeth will fall out, your skin sag and probably be in a shitty mood because of it. Very healthy...not.
