Danger: Delicious appetizers ahead

12 Dec

So, I’m at the Trader Joe’s tasting bar and the barista is offering samples of Spinach and Kale Bites.

Beware: Seductive flavor lures you to do things you didn't want to do.

I  try one.

I say: This is SO good!

She says: I know!

Despite the whole kale craze, this might be my first taste. I’m a veggie lover and spinach is a fave, so it’s no surprise that these green balls with cheesy garlic goodness make my eyes pop out.

I look at the box. Well, the points it scores on flavor it loses in the calorie and fat content. Not the most I’ve seen in a snack, but enough to give pause.

I say: I’m nervous about the calories and fat content.

She says: Well, they’re appetizers, so you’re not going to have very many.

I look at her. She looks at me.

I say: Right….

We smile, sadly, knowing that what’s meant as dainty food for company is too often what’s for dinner.
