Perhaps those Europeans have it right.

We recently had a guest dog. Her owners were over in Paris, sending postcards and buying cookies celebrating a brother’s milestone birthday and hanging out in cafes.

They brought us cookies to thank us for watching their sweet dog and I couldn’t help but notice the packaging. Cookies made by Kraft foods. But down there on the right hand corner, front of the box

1 cookie = 62 kcal, 3% GDA (presumably GDA = gross daily allowance). I mean don’t get me wrong, I eat enough milk chocolate and butter cookies to do the math myself — more than one cookie = more running necessary. But I love that it is right there on the front of the box.

Of course it didn’t keep me from eating my share of cookies, which led to a little crying from the youngest when she discovered, sob, that “there aren’t any French cookies left.”  Umm, not in this house with the milk chocolate fan home.

    Should you ever want to experience part of the joy of a trip to France for about $3.50, check the grocery store. Around here anyway, you can buy these cookies (without the French vocabulary) at Safeway.
