Low Cal Honey

sugarbearI like honey. It’s natural. It’s sweet. And best of all it has zero calories. I mean, how could it not? Why else would they have replaced all the sugar cereals with honey equivalents?

What? You mean it’s not a low calorie sugar substitute? Sheesh! You’d think it was some sort of miracle diet food the way Super Sugar Crisps were suddenly ditched in favor of Golden Crisps. They even renamed Sugar Bear to Super Bear. What’s up with that?

Well, today I have a honey of a story for you. I wish I could claim this as my own, but it’s something I heard on the radio. Still, it’s too good to not share.

Apparently a woman walked into a store one day and asked the shopkeeper about some low calorie honey sold there. The shopkeeper, puzzled, said they didn’t carry any. The customer insisted. “My roommate bought some and I know she got it here!” This did not change the shopkeeper’s mind about her inventory. “In fact, not only do we not have any, I don’t believe that even exists. Honey is honey, plain and simple.” Undeterred, the customer disagreed. “I saw the jar. I had some and it tasted just like real honey. I’ve got to have some. It’s around here somewhere!” So they marched around the store and low and behold the customer found it.

Actually, I’m pretty sure my mom has some low cal honey, but it’s definitely not natural. It’s like Splenda in golden liquid form or something.

I have some “sugar free” honey. Found it last week at Super Wal-Mart.

Sugar free honey sounds like fat free fat. I don’t even want to think what’s it’s made of…
