Look, Ma! No Fat!

I haven’t made a grasshopper pie in years but this hot weather just begs for it.

Let’s see.

  • Marshmallows
  • Heavy cream
  • Butter
  • Oreos – must be some protein in that chocolate!
  • Creme de Menthe – green is always nutritious, right?
  • Creme de Cacao – more chocolate?
  • Milk – good enough for babies, good enough for me!

Grasshopper pie is obviously a health food!

Seriously now. The marshmallows are made of corn syrup and sugar. The package has a huge label reading FAT FREE!

Is this:

  1. Brilliant advertising
  2. Someone’s idea of a joke
  3. Proof that Americans are gullible, stupid, or both
  4. Repulsive
  5. All of the above

What do you think?
