Here it is... we have made it through another year. All the events of this year can now become nostalgia in the annals of 2008.

Ricky and Stacey have a few words to publicly say as this year closes.

To our staff of Sugarless deLite- We thank you for your efforts and loyalty through the past year. To Stephen (Macgiver Falcone), Wylee (too cool for an alias), Larry (the official Dude Man), and Dalton we thank you for being part of this crazy family. To Tim, your genius creativity in the bakery is known by many. To Brad, the master manager of this domain-your efforts, guidance of our staff and juggling of the many hats you wear very well is appreciated,especially when things get "ganza meshugah", which is often.

To our customers-without you, we wouldn't be here. W…

Coming to you from the Beaches in my Mind

Sitting here in my hammock, swaying in the breezes of Seychelles, sipping on a sugarfree Baja Bob's Desert Lime Margarita chased down by a Sugarless deLite chocolate truffle, and watching the sailboats drift by.......

Oh, sorry. Got caught up in that daydream again.Sounded good, didn't it? Well, you CAN get the margarita mix and the chocolate truffles from us. However, if you get to Seychelles, i would not put up one argument if you take me and my husband with you. We won't bother you at all.



OK, I admit, it is the Saturday before New Years Eve and I am ready to put this year to bed and start on the next. But... before we do that,…

Liberate Your Libations
New Years Eve is Monday! Stock up this weekend with Margarita, Pina Colada, Martini, and Mojito Mixes to help you celebrate.



The year is drawing to an end. Time to start making your New Year's resolution list if you are into that sort of things. Mine are simple-don't do anything newsworthy because they only print the ridiculous, the bad,embarassing and the inane or insane. My husband's list never changes.He wants the Atlanta Braves to win the World Series this year and every year.Our den is the Atlanta Braves Hall of Fame inner sanctum. From th…

We have plenty of freshly baked items coming out of our kitchen or how about a Pumpkin or Egg Nog shake? Sound good! that is because it is.

However, the rest of us are here and at your service.

While you're at it, get yourself a treat.Peruse our bake case, chocolate case, or let us make you a shake, cone, or cup of our delicious frozen yogurt.




Boxing or Boxer Day-A short History Lesson

According to Wiki-pedia-It was the day when people would give a present or Christmas box to those who had worked for them throughout the year.

* In England many years ago, it was common practice for the servants to carry boxes to their employers whe…

Last chance to shop. We have baked some extra pies for you, and we have plenty of chocolates and sweets available for you. While you are in the store, don't forget to get your stocking stuffer items.

After going to church and brunch, my family and I split ways so that I could work and they could do some shopping. We met up afterwards to see the new National Treasure movie. If you can stomach a bit of a stretch from the plot and about 20 minutes of unnecessary movie time, this is one that would make a good holiday film for the family.

If you've seen the original, this one follows the same formula. The same characters return with a different treasure and a different…

Cone Day! All cones are $1.85 (regularly $2.77).

We are no longer accepting additional orders for the bakery. We will bake extra pies and cake loaves, but it is a good idea to come in early to make sure that you can get something if you don't have an order.

After today, we will be down to the final two shopping days before Christmas. We will be open extended hours tomorrow and our hours will be shorter on Monday.

Sunday: 10 AM to 6 PM
Monday: 9 AM to 4 PM

While you are in the store, it is a good idea to pick up a calendar so that you will know the hours for the last week of the year.

The Festivus celebration was wonderful. We managed quite a good showing of grievances and, as the Festivus cheer spread, to include the staff of Bavarian Grill. The friendly banter between our table and the accordion player was enjoyable. Moreover, the annual hiding of the Festivus pole was an …

Today, JJ Pearce and Trinity Christian Academy students can get a free small yogurt by showing their student ID. What a great way to start the holidays.

Three shopping days left after today. Don't forget to come in and pick up all of your sugar free needs while your in between your holiday shopping errands. If you need a bakery item, we are happy to take your order. We are, however, no longer accepting cake or cheesecake orders until after Christmas. We are excepting orders for pies and pumpkin breads.

Happy Birthday wishes to Samuel Leroy Jackson. Mr. Jackson is a well known actor who has been in movies that range from the critically acclaimed Pulp Fiction to the critically paned Snakes on a Plane. Over the years, he has built himself a fantastic body of work. My personal favorite film is the The Long Kiss Goodnight. (What's your favorite Samuel L. Jackson film?…

Parfait Day! All parfaits are $2.99 today (regularly $3.69). It is not a bad idea to call and order these. They tend to go very quickly when they are on sale.

The bagels, pita (wheat and white), and English Muffins have arrived. We have received our shipment and have all varieties of bagels (Blueberry, Sweet Wheat, Cinnamon, Onion, White, and Perfect 10) on hand in the store.

The bagel shipment will be a bit off for the next two weeks. Next week, we will receive our shipment on Friday instead of Thursday. The first week of the new year, we will not receive a shipment. It's not a bad idea to stock up.

Today is the deadline to order for the holidays. Unlike Thanksgiving, we are usually able to fit in a few more orders after the deadline, but it is always best to get an order in early if you know that you need one.

Some of you might be starting your weekend early or taking of…

Yogurt Special! Buy one, get one free from 6 PM to 8 PM (limit one, excludes XL).

There are two more days until the holiday orders are due for bakery items. We are still currently accepting cake orders as well as pies, cheesecakes, and pumpkin breads. Don't forget to order.

My holiday shopping is done, and I am getting ready to hunker down for the long hall of the next several days. While I'm looking forward to vacation and time with family, I do enjoy the time that I get to spend helping people find the perfect gift. For as busy as everyone gets this time of year, most of us seem to stay in pretty good moods. It's one of the things that make the holidays special. I just think it's better if we don't forget to slow down a little and be thankful for what we have.

Shake Day! All shakes are $3.69 all day long (regularly $3.93-$4.62).

We had a lot of orders go out yesterday. We're sending more today, and we will ship through this Friday. We will be happy to expedite your shipment if need be. Also, if you live in the area and need a bakery item for Christmas, don't forget to place your order by this Thursday, the 20th.

After a busy day at the store, I went for a relaxing journey to the mall. Crazy? Maybe, but the mall wasn't that bad. While it was busy, I managed to walk through the crowds without to much of a problem. I got some of my favorite pretzels at Antie Anne's and then continued on to my destination. I kind of wondered around in that over tired haze after I completed my shopping goal. It's an odd form of decompression, but it worked well. It's nice being on the other side of the counter wishing…

Everyone has one week left to take care of their Christmas shopping. We're going to be busy in the store today with the mail orders for the holiday season. If you need something shipped, come in today and place your order. All orders that go out today will be there in time for Christmas. We will also ship throughout the week, so if you find yourself running late, we can still help.

Tonight, our yogurt is buy one, get one free from 6 PM to 8 PM (limit one per person, excludes XL).

Tomorrow, we will have our coke floats for $2.99 (regularly $4.62).

The next to last shopping weekend of the season is here. We're going to have a lot of people coming in today, but don't be afraid to join them. Personally, I've only got one person left for which to shop. I took the responsibility of shopping for my mom, and my wife is going to shop for her dad. I figured it was a fair trade. I'm looking forward to getting finished and wrapping the presents.

In the meantime, we have been stalling by watching the final season of Veronica Mars. The show is proving to be a winner once again. The sharp writing is still enjoyable and refreshing. The character development, which has always been a strength of the show, is moving along at a nice pace again. It…

Teacher Day! All teachers can come in and get a small yogurt for 99 cents today, or you can upgrade to another size and receive $1.46 off of your yogurt. (Limit one per person, please show your teacher ID.)

We've had a very busy week up here with mail orders. While mail order Monday still looms on the horizon after this weekend, we managed to get a pretty good head start. If you need us to ship something for you for the holidays, please come in and order this weekend or place an order online. We will be happy to make someone happy for you with a gift from Sugarless deLite.

Happy Birthday Wishes to Dani. Dani is my wonderful sister-in-law who is turning 20 today. We hope that you have a fantastic birthday, and we look forward to seeing you over Christmas.

For the second time in a week, my wife and I ate at Kenny's Wood Fired Grill in Addison. This is not a place that we would normally stop into, but we had two 50 dollar gift certificates. Even though it would not have made it on to our to try list based on curiosity, it is a fantastic restaurant. If your looking for a great place to go for a date or a relaxing evening out, this dimly lit chophouse is an excellent choice.

The average plate will run 20 to 25 dollars, and the food is not going to be massed on your plate. Rather, the gourmet style pr…

12 Days Till Christmas

Yogurt Club Day! If you are a member of the Yogurt Club, then come in today and get a small yogurt for only 45 cents. Or, you can get 2 dollars off of any other size (limit one discount per card). If you are not a member of the Yogurt Club ask us about it and join today to start saving.

Christmas is only 12 days away after today. This fact got me thinking about the 12 Days of Christmas song. (The only good version of this song belongs to the Muppets and John Denver.) I've always assumed that the song refers to the 12 days before Christmas; however, it is actually an event that starts on Christmas Day and concludes through the morning of Epiphany on January the 6th. The link will take you to the Wikipedia entry for anyone who would like to read more. I found it interesting.

One thing that I did know about the 12 Days of Christmas song is that it is used as an ec…

There are only thirteen days left to shop at Sugarless deLite before Christmas. We will be closed on Christmas day. Also, our holiday hours are a little bit different than normal at the end of the month, so make sure to check the calendar out. The hours start to change on the 23rd (open from 10 AM to 6 PM) and the 24th (open from 9 AM to 4 PM).

After a couple of day of feeling under the weather, my body seems to have recovered from whatever ailed it. It was fortunate that I was not feeling well on a weekend that I had off already. While I was sick, I was not so sick as to miss the graduation celebration. I just ended up sleeping a lot afterwards. Now that I am feeling better, it is full steam ahead until Christmas. :)

There is more good news for the Mediterranean diet. It seems that strictly following this d…

I noticed a couple of mistakes on yesterday's mailer. The first was a grammatic error in the first sentence. The second was a little more important. The coupons should all read 2007 for their expiration and not 2006. Mea Culpa. I guess that is what I get for cutting corners. Rather than tie everyone's inbox up with another email, we will honor the coupons will as is. Don't forget to use them.

My wife and I watched High School Musical last night. I will freely admit that I am the one that made her watch the movie. I like musicals, and I am not ashamed to say it. We grew up watching musicals in my house which is probably because my mom grow up watching musicals on the big screen. As my wife will attest, I will frequently break out in song. If my song is left unc…
