I was thinking about my diet today and I decided to become a vegan. I have gone through long periods of eating vegetarian, but I've never been a vegan. Today, I decided I was ready. I started working on my resolve and my motivation and my rationalizations: "hey, I don't even eat much meat as it is." (I had a huge roast beef sandwich on Tuesday and Swedish meatballs today, but I'm sticking with my "not too carnivorous" self-image.) I decided to get a couple of cookbooks, buy some soy products and throw away all the old cheeses lingering in my fridge.
Then, I went to Whole Foods and spied this product:
Those words you may or may not be able to make out on the label are: DOUBLE CREAM WHITE CHOCOLATE MILK. The Oreo-meets-Double Cream White Chocolate Milk image overpowered me. I quickly reneged on the vegan thing.
I can start eating a vegan diet tomorrow, right after I have 9 cups of coffee topped off with Double Cream White Chocolate Milk.
