Sunday Paper Tidbits

If you still have Sunday's paper, look closely through the national advertising flyers. There's likely a coupon for 50-cents off a box of Lipton's new pyramid teas lurking somewhere in all those flyers. The teas have landed in grocery stores here in the Midwest. Not sure about futher west. I'd really love to hear your thoughts on these teas! I've only had a chance to sample one. Will write more on my experience in the near future.

Also, in yesterday's Parade there was a discussion on the health/heart benefits of chocolate. To reap the reward to your heart, you need to consume dark chocolate that is at least 60% cocoa. I'd also recommend organic. More info on chocolate and heart health. Before you get too excited, remember that chocolate packs a very high caloric value for its weight. So think in terms of small bites - one small piece of dark chocolate a day!

I don't get the Sunday paper, but I did notice that the Lipton tea pyramids are in my grocery store. They seemed a bit pricey (compared to loose leaf teas) for what you get. I didn't buy any, so no report on how they taste.

Yeah and double chocolate up with the benefits of red wine and you've got yourself one heart healthy and romantic snack. Thanks for the choco pesticide info. I haven't found any organic 70% chocolates I like...so I'll have to keep looking. Organic chocolate is probably one organic thing that isn't that much more expensive than regular.
