I should have known it was too good to be true. But that didn't stop me. Hope sucked me in, just like it has done so many times in the past. Hope, stupid, foolish, hope.
It was the Yoplait commercials - the wife on the phone talking about Boston Cream Pie, Apple Turnovers.....while her husband desperately searches the fridge for these delectables. Of course she was talking about new yogurt flavors, not the baked goods themselves. But those sound like really good flavors!! And I really like yogurt! What a great idea! What a beautiful dream! Why hadn't anyone thought of this before?
Yeah, whatever. Go ahead and wake up. I just tried Weight Watchers Boston Cream Pie low fat yogurt. It MIGHT have a weird Boston Cream Pie aftertaste. Maybe. If you really concentrate and look at the picture of Boston Cream Pie on the container and try to remember the last time you allowed yourself to actually have Boston Cream Pie.
The bottom line - this yogurt is NOTHING like Boston Cream Pie! Boston Cream Pie is delicious! There's that layer of thick chocolate frosting, the yellow cake, the cream.....
If you really want Boston Cream Pie - have Boston Cream Pie - savor it, celebrate it - make it worth every bite. But don't waste your time with Weight Watcher's Boston Cream Pie yogurt. It just makes you long for what might have been.
