I’ve seen breakfast cookies, sugar-free cookies (yuck) and cookies that look like panda bears. But cookies that help you lose weight — that’s just too good to be true. The great thing about this blog is when I have the time to update it, I occasionally get offers to try stuff or attend events. All of it is very cool but when I got an opportunity to try some diet cookies, it seemed too good to be true.
I got a big box of these Smart for Life cookies at home. The thing behind these cookies is that you have to eat an entire box off cookies in one day. That makes about 6 cookies that come in chocolate chip (the variety sent to me), blueberry and oatmeal raisin. Then a sensible meal at night which basically means no junk. Each cookie is 100 calories. I’ve known salespeople in my office who have done this diet with amazing results, losing up to 8 pounds in two weeks. But those salespeople must be crazy because these cookies are disgusting. Have you ever had a “mockocolate”-covered sponge with a diet aftertaste?
The F*Cup cookie was something I picked up at Nijiya for the, ahem, packaging. I got it as a joke for Paul, but when it rang up on the register, it was almost $5 for four cookies. What exactly did I pick up and why was the cashier checking me out? It seems that F*cup cookie claims to have breast-enhancing herbs that will increase your cup size to a double D.
They tasted a bit like shortbread, nothing too special. As for their claims… no news to tell. I wonder how many of those cookies I’d need to devour to look like Katie Price. (answer: ALL OF THEM) Beside the vanilla cookie, the F*cup cookie also comes in chocolate.
I can’t help but wonder what would happen if I combined the breast-enhancing cookies with the weight loss results of the diet variety. The world will never know because I prefer cupcakes over cookies.
