100 Calorie Crooner Sparks Dilemma Between Cupcakes and Culture

100_cal_crooner.jpg

We've since relegated Hostess to the banks of childhood memory along with Pixie Stix, Kool-Aid and other non-food food, but we actually did swoon when we saw this promotion for their new 100 Calorie Packs.

Plug in your Calorie Pack preferences and the 100 Calorie Crooner will sing a song that sits somewhere between the Beauty School Dropout scene in Grease and Sinatra's last live rendition of Strangers in the Night.

The denigration in standards from Sinatra to Grease to the 100 Calorie Crooner didn't escape us, but the gaping void left by lack of class is nothing that can't be filled with three mini-cakes (at 100 calories total! Come on).

I've actually had these and they are amazing, they taste just like the "big ones," which is a real accomplishment for those 100 cal snacks (trust me on this one!).

The Crooner site has a $1 off coupon too - I love nothing more than singing napkin holders and discounts - hehehe. :D

I missed the coupon. I am totally migrating to the nearest 7-11 for a pack of these horrifying things.
