I don’t know if anyone has ever tried any of Walden Farms calorie free sauces/dips but I found them in the store today and stocked up. I was so excited to find 0 calorie marshmallow dip and peanut butter and chocolate sauce and creamy dressing, that I convinced myself it would magically taste like the real thing. I was so excited in fact that I couldn’t even wait to get home to sample my new things. They were DISGUSTING!! OMG, they were so bad I think I will have nightmares for the rest of my life.

Anyways, in hopes of restoring my faith in the possibility of tasty 0 calorie treats, I turned to tea. Also, I turned to a tea I love. Hence I am having a cup of Fantasy Island. Raspberry deliciousness combined with coconutty sweetness. This hits the spot every time. Yum!!! Faith restored :)

Oh, I’m so sorry I am laughing so hard! I know that feeling, when you build the anticipation and end up spitting whatever it is out and tossing the rest in the trash. Tea is way better. :)

Don’t worry about the laughing. My mom was sitting next to me and I think she almost peed herself when she saw my reaction. It just did not go over well.

oh no! lol…. i prefer outright justifications: carrot cake is good for me because it has carrots in it which cancel out the oil and the sugar. so is the cream cheese icing because it has dairy…. calcium is damn important!

while i experience more delusions this way, i also experience fewer let downs =0P

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
