Eat Chocolate, Sexy- M&Ms Super Bowl Commercial
Loving the 2012 M&M SuperBowl Commercial. With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s an ad of sheer brilliance. ”I’m sexy and I know it!” Oh, M&Ms- you are so funny.
FYI- there are actually several Health Benefits of Chocolate including the anti-oxidant rich content in DARK chocolate and some studies have shown Dark Chocolate to help reduce blood pressure. And did you know that M&Ms actually come in a delicious dark chocolate now? I think they are purple…not sure why they are purple, but they are.
That being said, I am not giving you a pass to go into a chocolate binging frenzy. Chocolate is still full of lots of calories. If you will be indulging in Valentine’s sweets over the next couple of weeks, make sure it’s good chocolate. If you get a box of those weird fruity filled ones- poke them to see if it’s on you like instead of gobbling down a weird one. Also, cut out other high fat/high calorie foods, such as Doritos. That is if you still want your jeans to fit.
Speaking of Doritos, what did you think of the Doritos Super Bowl Commercial. I think that Granny catapulting the baby over to the swing set to get the chips was funny BUT seriously why did that little boy have a whole BIG bag of chips? Why couldn’t he have an individual size snack bag or a bowl full. What sort of message is that sending?
Anyway, the worst part was that Granny and baby were eating them in the end. I wonder what Michelle Obama thought about that commercial in her war against childhood obesity. I’m guessing she was horrified. Here is my tip: Do not give your babies chips and especially if they are in a bouncer. They are too young to eat that junk and they could choke. The End of my Rant….
