As if 4.3% unemployment, satellite TV and Viagra were not enough, now come Lay’s WOW potato chips from Procter & Gamble – fat-free and half the calories of regular potato chips, which I remember only vaguely from 1973 when I last ate one. (Many health nuts don’t even eat nuts, let alone chips.) Yes, there have been all those warnings about unpleasant side effects. But I’ve tried them anyway and – wow! They’re just like real potato chips. (Well, the “ruffles” are the best, and most like the Potato Frills of childhood.)
And what of the rest of the menu?
Toss a well-marinated ostrich steak on the barbie (2 grams of fat per 3-ounce serving versus 3 grams for turkey and 16 grams for hamburger), top it off with one of Fanny’s fat-free cheesecakes or her low-fat carrot cake – is this a great country, or what?
