    Now if only Pocky had zero calories ....
    They've been working on that version for a while and have come up with some interesting approximations; all having just about zero taste.

    I'll have the real Pocky as I love the mix of salty, sweet, crispy and smooth. It's designed to be a treat so I'll stick to indulging only occasionally.

    Yeah, the reduced cal versions of food just aren't the same. I'm not a fan of eating cardboard.

    From one of my fav stand-up comedy routines by a guy with a very dry delivery style and tone: "Have you ever tried rice cakes? They're pretty good when you put enough icing on them."

    I say we take the creme brulee, tiramisu and how bout I make a pound cake. Ya'll invited to my place. We can all go hang out with a big pot of joe or proper cuppa tea and have a gab session. Thats only if those from the UK bring the cream for the coffee.

    I have a bad sweet tooth, it will be the death of me. My favorite is almond butter toffee which I make at the holidays or on special occasions like birthdays. But I will usually go for a cadbury if I need a chocolate fix, love the gummie dudes too. Anything ickie, stickie, gooie, chewie is a yummie ummie to me. I am a candy ho.

    LOL,

    That would be soooo awesome... Tea w/ real cream, or coffee w/ Bailey's? I'll have both, I guess!
