Trader Joe's European Style Chocolate yogurt is excellent ... as a dessert item. The grocey store brand called Siggi's is also lightly sweetened compared to the competition and can be a tasty dessert. To me plain yogurt is just fine unsweetened or with berries or other fruit, but I agree, most of the pre-sweetened stuff is just horribly sweet. Sweetness is a matter of what you are used to, just like salt.

But, it is low-fat! So it must be heart healthy.

Oh, yeah. When we drive by, he almost breaks his neck trying to see if the "Hot Now" sign is lit.

Also note that in the original article in Mother Jones they are using the "Original Glazed" donut from Krispy Creme. It's by far the lowest calorie donut they sell at 190 calories and 10 g of sugar.

And their only good donut IMO. Hot off the conveyor belt is ridiculously amazing.

I have to have a donut the second they finish making them. I ate one that had been sitting around for a short while and it wasn't the same. Defeated the purpose of eating a raised donut. The texture was different. But I don't eat many donuts anyway.

Cheers!

Well yeah I have, it was very disappointing in fact it was almost disgusting! I went after work one evening and they were being made I watched and they were warm and they were sweet. Sickeningly sweet. I bought 2 or 3 glazed but wished I hadn't spent so much time going there vs just driving home as it was about 7 pm in the evening! I had a few here and there as they were a novelty having just opened 2 stores in the state and people would bring in a dozen every now and again.

That was years ago and I haven't had one since and I wouldn't want one either. I like sweet stuff but they were just so sweet they were terrible. YYMV.

I wonder how much the writer got paid for the article.
