The Genie's Out of the Bottle

Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Grasshopper (Mint), Mocha, Pumpkin, and Very Berry.

Buy 2 cases of the GNU Flavor and Fiber bars, mix and match, and get a free 10 dollar yogurt card.

We are now restocked on the Pepper Plant Chipotle sauce and the Kitchen Table Baker's Crackers (Aged Parmesan, Sesame, Everything, Rosemary, & Jalapeno).


It shouldn't come as a big surprise, but we've found something else that is widely used is bad for us:

"Manufacturers, retailers, and regulatory agencies consider eliminating a potentially harmful chemical from plastic sport and baby bottles."

That's right. The sports bottles that we are found of toting around with us at the gym or the sippy cups that we give to our kids contain a chemical called bisphenol-A (BPA). After a recent study, the Canadian government has decided that this chemical is closely enough linked to possible cancer or reproductive problems that it has banned the sale of the bottles containing this chemical.

One week after the decision by the Canadian government, the main company that makes the majority of these bottles has decided to phase out the use of this chemical over the next few months. Good call Nalgene.

If you are looking for an immediate alternative, then check out the line from Klean Kanteen.

Puzzler: Deduce the secret five-letter word from the clues. For instance, the word WRITE shares three letters with the word RIGHT.
