File Under: Yes, It Exists! I’m not one to worry much about counting calories, so I would likely never have even looked for something called Skinny Syrups, but this was a gift — and what a gift at that! The friend who gifted this pretty pink bottle of Jordan’s Birthday Cake-flavored Syrup to me knows that I adore anything that has to do with Birthday Cake (or the flavor thereof) and the fact that it is my favorite color is, as they say, the icing on the cake!
I have started sweetening my morning coffee with two teaspoons of this stuff and, man, is it ever scrumptious. And it has zero calories! Anyway, you can put this syrup on or in anything that you want to sweeten without adding any additional calories but instead adding the flavor of Birthday Cake. Win Win!

To kick things off, let me give a round of shout outs to the considerable number of tasty edibles that you should be putting in your mouth right now. Let’s do this thing!
Anne and I had been at the Monarch Rooftop, enjoying its unparalleled view of the Empire State Building and drinking Lychee Martinis until we were fucked-up out of our minds, when we decided to stop in at Jack’s — which is this gigantic close-out emporium — on the way back to the subway in Herald Square. All I wanted to do was go home and slouch in front of the telly, but the idea of buying Indian food frozen entrees for $1.49 each was just too good to pass up.
While Anne searched in the refrigerator section for milk (yes they sell milk at Jack’s), I saw this in one of the glass cases, and then did a double-take. Yes It Exists: Hello Kitty Cotton Candy Flavored Yogurt from Yoplait. I couldn’t bring my self to purchase it, so I have no idea how it tastes, but it sounds pretty nasty.
