With New Year’s Resolutions for fitness and weight loss quickly approaching, it is time for most of us to go on that final holiday calorie splurge just before we have to dust off the Total Gym or Bowflex or pop P90x into the DVD player in an effort to incinerate our fat and fit back into our pre-holiday pants.
Before we can think about how we can get fit quickly, however, we have to consider how to obtain maximum caloric overload in minimal time. I mean, after all, once January 1 hits, we will never eat anything bad for us again. NEVER. I mean it this time!!
Now, if we still lived in the 1980′s, before we popped a Jane Fonda workout tape in the VCR (or BetaMax) we could make simple, yet tasty snacks–even “apple pie” in as little as two minutes with the SuperSnacker?
How do I know the SuperSnacker is the perfect snack-making appliance? Everyone’s favorite butler, Mr. Belvedere, told me so.
(Cue theme music.)
Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t equate flaky pie crust with toast. I’m pretty sure if I brought apple pie filling stuffed between two slices of toast to our Christmas dinner and called it “apple pie,” the “hungry hooligans” in our family would run me out of town. And if I said it was “just like mom used to make,” I’d be kicked out of the family forever–and I can’t remember my mom ever making an apple pie.
The “Supah Snackah,” as Mr. Belvedere* so aggressively calls it, is for so much more than Apple Toast Pie, though:
Now, I’m not thinking I’d use my SuperSnacker for making eggs or muffins, but I do think that this kind of infomercial kitchen product was a predecessor of modern conveniences like the Hulk Hogan Ultimate Grill. Indoor countertop grills are so common now that I don’t know how I ever lived without one. I’m just not sure I’d ever use it for pie.
At least, not in the new year.
I mean it this time.
