Supermodel Heidi Klum has entered the world of candy as health food
In yet another sign of the impending apocalypse, can you believe a supermodel like Heidi Klum is actually promoting a new line of "healthy" fruit candies by using her image on the packaging? While I'm sure a bunch of dirty, perverted men will buy the candy just to drool over Klum, I just don't get how somebody like her could or would want to associate themselves with something that is obviously not a healthy product at all.
Of course, she would argue that they ARE healthy because, after all, they are FAT FREE! And we all know if something doesn't contain ANY fat at all, then it must be good for you, right? Well, let's take a quick look-see at that nutritional label, shall we?
Let's see here, the serving size is 7 pieces of candy with three servings per package. That means you get 21 pieces of "Heidi's Fruit Flirtations" in each bag. Although it is fat-free and that fact is PROMINENTLY displayed on the packaging, there are a whopping 31g carbohydrates per serving in this candy. In other words, OVER FOUR GRAMS OF CARBS PER PIECE!
Okay, when I was on a low-fat diet back in 1999, I used to chow down on Twizzlers candy like it was going out of style because it was "fat-free." I didn't just eat a couple of strands, I'd eat the whole bag! It is not implausible that someone could ostensibly eat all 21 pieces of Heidi's chewy, fruity candies in one sitting, is it? Wanna hear the scary part about that -- that adds up to nearly 100g carbs all by itself! Be still my fluttering heart!
While Heidi Klum goes around sucking on her new candy trying to fool people into believing they are eating a "healthy" treat, just remember that this supermodel who supposedly serves as an example of what beauty, health and vitality is all about is actually making the obesity problem worse by encouraging the consumption of more and more sugar.
That's just plain freaky, Heidi, and you should be ashamed of yourself for allowing your image to promote such garbage!
