Little big scam

Mencken must be chortling in his grave over the exploding craze for 100-calorie snacks. More hucksters are not going broke suckering an American public that ballooned with the last fad, for fat-free Snackwells etc. Maybe if schools still taught math people would realize 100 calories is not exactly bird feed. One little Snickers leads to another, and before you know it you could have had a Happy Meal on a 2,000-calorie day. I’m just glad I got my aspiring anorexia out of the way at a young age. A hundred calories was a normal serving of almonds or chips or whatever. And you could buy portions one at a time. What good is a six-pack of baby Twinkies for someone with no self-control?
