Way to ruin one of the great pleasures of summer, Newsweek. Why is it such a sin to eat silky, delicious, premium ice cream? To quote the humorous and intelligent ladies on Shapely Prose, OMG!!1! TEH FATZ! This article isn’t about ice cream, it’s about making people fear body fat, reviling it on themselves and others.
It wouldn’t surprise me, however, if the article has the opposite effect on readers, because last night it inspired me to crave, then buy, eat and thoroughly enjoy its number one ranked “most fattening ice cream flavor,” Häagen–Dazs‘ Chocolate Peanut Butter. To say it was fan-freaking-tastic would be a vast understatement. Viva la crème glacée!
On another note, how is this Newsweek piece even news?
