nobody is perfect

Pin It

No one is perfect, including me. Remember that post I wrote about avoiding things like HFCS, and going for organic stuff? Well today, I was at the "DQ" the evil twin sister of McD. (If you didn't know, McD's is the whipping boy for the fast food industry. Ever watch Supersize Me?)

Why was I there?

Because I was
a) bored
b) driving
c) kind of hungry, and thinking about ice cream
d) all of the above

(the answer is D) Here are my excuses: Elizabeth fell asleep in the car on my way into town to run errands. It was mid-afternoon, about the time that I normally eat a snack to keep me going until supper. So, since she really needed the nap, I just kept driving. I saw the DQ, and impulsively decided to get a kit-kat blizzard, one of my favorite combos. Bad decision.

What I learned:
I need to work on my impulse control. I could have chosen not to get anything, but I did anyway, and I even knew that I shouldn't get it.

Imagining what a kit-kat blizzard tastes like is better than the real thing. My money would have been better spent getting expensive ice cream at the grocery story without all the bad stuff.

Since I had already wasted $3.07, I should have stopped after the first few bites, instead of "waisting" the food.

It was totally NOT worth the Content of said treat.
600 calories of (as borrowed from the DQ site:

INGREDIENTS - Kit Kat Blizzard - Small
Chocolate Topping: High fructose corn syrup, water, cocoa (processed with alkali), modified food starch, salt, potassium sorbate (a preservative), and artificial flavors.

Dairy Queen Vanilla Soft Serve: Milkfat and nonfat milk, sugar, corn syrup, whey, mono and diglycerides, artificial flavor, guar gum, polysorbate 80, carrageenan, and vitamin A palmitate.

Kit Kat Pieces: Sugar, wheat flour, cocoa butter, nonfat milk, chocolate, refined palm kernel oil, lactose (milk), milk fat, contains 2% or less of: soy lecithin, PGPR (emulsifier), yeast, artificial flavor, salt, and sodium bicarbonate.

So not worth it.
