Human Puppy Chow Recipe

From, one of many recipes for "Puppy Chow" available on the Internets. This snack, which has eluded me until now, is apparently a well-known treat for enjoying in front of the television, or hey, any time! The proportions vary according to the various online recipes, but the ingredients remain the same: a concoction of Chex or Crispix cereal, microwaved with chocolate and peanut butter and coated with powdered sugar. Looks just like Puppy Chow, tastes, apparently, like heaven. I am so serving this at my next swanky party.
Puppy Chow
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
8 cups Chex or Crispix Cereal
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Melt peanut butter, chocolate chips, and butter together in a large bowl in microwave.
Pour over cereal in another large baking bowl and stir very well.
Pour the cereal in a large Ziploc or Glad bag and add the powdered sugar. Close bag tightly and shake until evenly coated with powdered sugar.
Best if refrigerated.
Take out and enjoy!

My favorite part of this recipe is the serving information at the bottom of the page. "Serves: 1-20"

'Tis the Season for Turkey Soda

Another Thanksgiving, another Jones Soda Holiday pack.

The Dessert Pack flavors provide a choice of pie flavors: Cherry Pie, Banana Cream Pie, Key Lime Pie, Apple Pie, and Blueberry Pie.

All flavors are caffeine-, calorie- and triptophan-free.

Happy holiday.

Big is the new medium

Wendy's has decided to remove the term "Biggie" from its menu, and use the more familiar terms small, medium and large.

The 32-ounce soda formerly known as a "Biggie" will now be known as a "medium." That's right, a medium soda is 32 ounces. A quart. That's almost 3 cans worth, at 384 calories and 104 grams of sugar -- about 37 teaspoons. Wendy's is adding a new "large" soda at a whopping 42 ounces.

Perhaps the clothing industry should follow Wendy's resizing example. American Apparel, the popular clothing company whose American-made shirts are the basis for many trendy t-shirt lines, considers a "medium" equivalent to a women's size 4-6.

The average woman in America is a size 14. The average model is a size 6. How is a 4-6 "medium" by any rational standard? Now apply Wendy's sizing paradigm and you get a whole new perspective. A "Biggie," which is 3 times the standard can size, is now a medium. So by logical extension, an "extra large" in clothing -- defined by American Apparel as a 12-14 -- should be the new medium.

Considering the contribution the fast food industry is making to the body size of Americans, it seems only fair we should align our definitions of body size to their definitions of portion size.
