Freaking Cool Whip

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Hi. My name is Joell and I'm a Cool Whip-aholic. My problem started sometime in the late 90's with my discovery of the of fat-free Coolwhip. Just 15 calories and zero fat for 2 delightful tablespoons of creamy goodness.... yummy, delicious spoonfuls of whipped goodness. The problem is, like potato chips, you can't just have one. One TbSp leads to two which leads to three, which leads to 50 (which happens to be exactly how many tablespoons contained within an 8 oz tub). I know this from experience.

It starts in the grocery store with a conversation between me and myself:

Me: I should get some ff whipped cream.
Self: You know what happens when you have coolwhip in the house.
Me: I'll put it over fresh fruit... it will be low cal.
Self: YOU can't have coolwhip in the house.
Me: I can mix a little pb with a couple of TBSP and make fluff...Yaye Protein.
Self: Hellooooo!!!! Cool whip is evil!
Me:'s just a dairy product, how can a dairy product be evil.
Self: Step away from the cool whip.
Me: I can handle it and we're not having this conversation anymore. LaLaLaLa

....and into the cart it goes (as I totally ignore me sense of reason other-wise known as self).

I have very good intentions usually.... starts off with a measured out serving and then another. Well hell that's only 30 cal and then another 45 and then an other 60 and before I know it, I've sucked down the entire 8oz tub.

8oz =50 Tbsp = 375 calories = 75 g Carbs = zero fat (thank God)= 8 WW points.


just pitiful

    Coolwhip isn't the only evil dairy product out there. One word - Starbucks. Great blog, funniest I've read on SP.
