So I looked at the label on my sugar-free cookies and was not happy to see that they're chock full of trans fats (the kind that are bad for your heart):
C'mon guys! If they can get the trans fats out of the glowing-neon-with-delicious-fake-cheezy-goodness Nacho Cheesier Doritos, they should be able to take them out of my sugar-free chocolate chip pecan cookies.
I'm calling them the Avandia cookies because they're good for the blood sugar, bad for the heart. Like the popular diabetes drug that has recently had attention called to it, they are maybe not so good for most diabetics if you look at the bigger picture because they may raise your risk of heart disease, which is the leading complication/cause of death among diabetics. And these cookies were clearly targeted at the diabetic market rather than low-carb dieters. You can tell by the package; dull and old-school rather than sexy and plastered with "LO CARB!" exclamations.
They sure were tasty though.
