REALITY CHECK: Real Simple June 2009 issue - SCOOP AWAY!!!

I recently read a fun article in the June 2009 issue of Real Simple. We all finally have a reason to quit looking at the nutritional facts on ice cream. Real Simple gives you a reason to indulge guilt free! On page 242 of the June issue there is an article titled, "Calorie Expenditures That May Surprise You". Did you know that:
  • Scooping very cold ice cream burns 655 calories
  • Scooping very cold ice cream while fending off three children burns 727 calories

Need to unwind and thought a glass of wine will do - don't stop there. Instead, I strongly recommend that you have the best of both worlds...treat yourself to a pint of Mercer's Wine Ice Cream. Yes - wine & ice cream! Lose the guilt, buy the kids a half-gallon of Mercer's Chocolate Marshmallow. Your biggest decision should be what flavor for you: Ala Port, Cherry Merlot, Chocolate Cabernet, Peach White Zinfandel, Red Raspberry Chardonnay & Royal White Riesling. By the time you are done scooping for everyone else, while protecting your pint of course, you have burned enough calories to put the spoon in your pint and enjoy your for adult-only dessert! And guess what, you don't have to make a choice between wine & ice can have both. Just keep it on the top shelf. Cheers!!!
