Ingredient list.....sugar, HFCS, dextrose fall in the top 5....yeah cause that sounds like eating spinach to me!
    UGH! If you said, just eat the spinach to get all the nutrients I bet you would get a dumb look LOL

    • Pretty much! A few tasted them and said they are awful and left a nasty after-taste. I wanted to say, "well, what did you expect a cookie that is packed with vitamins and minerals to taste like? Spinach?" 3 small cookies for 150 calories and 11g sugar and 24g carbs, eat a regular cookie.

        A regular cookie would certainly taste better and then have some spinach with your meal.

            • Since, everyone's still on the subject! Just a note to girlies that get UTI's often and not sure where the fuck they are coming from - it might be the rubbers you're using.

              I only see my boyfriend for three weeks at a time, twice a year at the moment. Every time I was with him the past two years, I'd get crazy painful UTIs - and that was the only time ever they popped up. They had to be caused by the sexy sexy times. Most everything online said that cleaning up after sex was the way to fix it, but I never had this problem before with our visits - so I called BS and kept looking for other reasons. Found a random post by some girl mentioning the condoms as a problem.

              We switched to polyurethane condoms, because that was the easiest thing to try at the time and everything cleared up within days and haven't had one since.

              Also, the plastic that is used to make certain.. toys can disrupt the awesomeness of your junk. One toy that I had for a couple years, started giving me yeast infections out of the blue. No change in routine about cleaning up there either.

              Not sure what the hell in going on down there with it hating everything now.

                No, they're the good ones. They're supposed to be there and they are an integral part of your immune system. Taking antibiotics kills them and increases your chances of subsequent infections from both other bacteria (like C. difficile) or yeast, which the good bacteria normally fight off for you. There are lots of others that normally live in and on your skin, gut, blood, sinuses, lungs, pretty much everywhere. They're your buddies.

                  Ok well crap. I should have asked what bacteria before they put me on an antibiotic. Here were the triggers they used to diagnos it
                  RBC/HPF was 50-100 should be 0 - 5 /HPF
                  WBC/HPF was 10-20 should be 0 - 5 /HPF

                  I do not even know what that crap is.. ugh.. friggin hatin' doctors right now

                  • I just got into a flexibility contest with my sis and accidentally ended up whacking my nuts on the floor. On the plus side I found out I'm as supple as a 12 year old.

                      No condoms or toys? It knows all. It sees all. It also apparently wants a baby.

                            Guh. Just turned 24, the baby urges are really starting to kick in - and that will be my gripe of the day. FU, junk!

                              I know that's where mine come from!
                              It ruins the mood of it but if you go to the bathroom straight after then wash yourself with cold water (I'm not gonna lie, it's not a fun thing to do unless you've been split by Mr. BigDick.. then it's kinda comforting xD) there's a much smaller chance of a UTI. The only times I get them now is when I've been too lazy to get out of bed and wash up. Drinking lots of water after as well helps to flush anything out.

                                Well my girlfriend and I learned in our two years together spermicide condoms cause her UTIs and so does not going to pee right after. These two simple changes got rid of the problem for her... Just an FYI
