Natural Procrastination

I think there is a market for packets of "Cheeto Dust."

Sprinkle it on your ice cream, or just dip your finger into this adorable Chester container and enjoy!

Did you know that 1 oz. of Cheetos has fewer calories than 1.7 oz. of Larabar "Jocolat?" Only 30 fewer, however, and practically the same amount of Vitamin E — 6% dva — which is only 4% less than what Larabar proclaims itself to be a "Good Source" for.

Protein, did you say? She's got 5g, he's packing only 2g. But, he's a small snack, after all, and made up of things like hydrogenated soybean oil, disodium phosphate (I venture this is what makes the cheese powder so addictive — plus the obligatory MSG, of course), enzymes even, and several things described frankly as "artificial," while Ms. Lara has about six ingredients, all organic and with fair-trade certified chocolate.

That's Denver, Colorado, versus Plano, Texas, for you!

Disodium phosphate, just the way mom used to make it. Yum!
