Does Your Protein Bar Have Too Much Sugar?

  • 4:47 am Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 by Ann Kelly

I ready something recently that rings so true: “if you don’t have to read the label you don’t have to count the calories.” This is so true for me right now. I’ve started looking for a healthier protein bar and after reading a lot of labels I’ve come to the conclusion that my choices are much more limited than I thought they would be.

A new study from HealthGrove shows that way too many so-called “healthy” protein bars have as much sugar and calories than a Snickers bar. Wow! So I’d get that quick rush of energy but it comes [More]

You may not have to wait for your once-a-year Girl Scout cookie fix much longer. This January General Mills will debut their newest cereals, both inspired by two of your favorites Girl Scout Cookies. There’s “Caramel Crunch” that make you think of my favorite – the Samoa. But if Thin Mints are more your style there’s one especially for you. We first heard about this from the site CandyHunting.com.

Then there’s a little franchise location Shaquille O’Neal bought for himself. He’s always loved seeing the “hot now” sign on and now he owns a Krispy Kreme location in the Atlanta [More]

  • 4:05 am Thursday, October 13th, 2016 by Ann Kelly

It’s hard to be humble when three of the top ten “foodie” cities in the US are right here in Tampa Bay. The newest survey from WalletHub places Tampa 4th, Miami 3rd and Orlando 4th.  What do they look at to make us culinary champs? That would be what we’re actually spending on groceries, and how many truly affordable restaurants we have that have that oh so desirable 4.5 stars. Oh and course anything that’s a food festival and those are never in short supply. We just celebrated Oktoberfest in Tampa, Magical Dining Month and the Epcot Food and Wine [More]

Pretty cool homage to a really fun show.  This is the sixth season with host Jonathan Bennett and judges Cake Decorator Shinmin Li and horror film icon Don Mancini. Sweet and scary.
