Big time fun
Next time you are in the frozen foods section of your market, perhaps even you'll be going there today?, be sure to scour the shelves for these little beauties. Mocha Frappucino bars. Heaven on a stick. Low fat heaven, too, if you're watching -- 120 tiny calories per bar. I know Starbucks coffee shops are international, but I don't know if their grocery-store items are or not.... I can also happily vouch for their Java Chip and Low-fat Latte ice creams. Yum.
Another great experience I can recommend: Ratatouille! Even though I'm a big Pixar fan, I wasn't expecting too much from this one -- I thought the overabundance of advertising had to be a bad sign, and I figured that at some point they'd have a dud. Whoa. Not this time! We all loved this movie. The plot takes some unexpected twists, the animated scenes of Paris are unbelievably beautiful and accurate, and it offers some genuine laugh-out-loud moments.
