    Semi-Angels and Devils: Ice Cream Bars & Sandwiches

    We continue our look at ice creams, this time focusing on sandwiches and bars. Unfortunately, as you are about to see, if you are not careful, you could very well end up buying a portable chocolate-covered triple bypass.

    I give the following a not-too-enthusiastic thumbs up (while better than other varieties, they are quite high in added sugar):

    Haagen Dazs Fat-Free Raspberry & Vanilla Yogurt Bars
    100 calories
    0 grams fat, 0 grams saturated fat
    16 grams sugar
    (per bar)

    Skinny Cow Chocolate & Vanilla Sandwiches
    130 calories
    2 grams fat, 1 gram saturated fat
    22 grams sugar
    (per sandwich)

    Soy Delicious Li’l Buddies Sandwiches
    150 calories
    3 grams fat, 1 gram saturated fat
    13 grams sugar
    (per sandwich)

    And these frightful four should be on the “very occasional treats” list:

    Klondike Bar
    280 calories
    19 grams fat, 14 grams saturated fat
    22 grams sugar
    (per bar)

    Nestle Drumstick
    340 calories
    21 grams fat, 11 grams saturated fat
    24 grams sugar
    (per drumstick)

    Starbucks Mud Pie Ice Cream Bar
    350 calories
    21 grams fat, 13 grams saturated fat
    25 grams sugar
    (per bar)

    Ben & Jerry’s Cone To Go
    360 calories
    19 grams fat, 12 grams saturated fat
    30 grams sugar
    (per cone)

      There’s no such thing as demon food.

      Everything will cause disease in excess, even exercise and celery.

      And very few foods are bad in moderation.

      While it’s best to eat fresh, vitamin-rich food, and to avoid processed foods and things high in simple starches, sugars and saturated fat, the real problem is not what we eat, but how much stress we have.

      Unfortunately, the diet industry has added so much stress to eating that it has become something people are afraid to do. I guarantee that far more heart problems are caused by stress than by having a few Klondike bars over the summer.

      But of course, we can’t ever address stress. That would get in the way of our capitalist goals of working constantly so we can buy SUVs and riding mowers. Nah, much better to create fake foods, diet fads and gym memberships and shame people into using those products.

      Please stop contributing to this problem, and stop labeling foods as demonic. It’s silly, and it’s counter-productive to goals of better health.
