Guilty Pleasure Thwarted By (Nutritional) Facts

Twice a day, for five consecutive days, I walk past a Baskin & Robbins. On one of the windows is a large advertisement for their Reeses® Peanut Butter Cup Sundae, and it makes my mouth water every time that I see it. Of course, now that I've looked at the nutritional facts (courtesy of the B&R website) I'm far less inclined to act on my impulses.

  1. I love the obesity tag. Also, I now want to eat this.
