RuPaul, drag queen extrodinaire, gave wonderful life advice when he talked about the tic tac diet on his first Christmas special.
As usual I was sitting there drinking my water, having no idea what to write this week, when a tiny orange pebble fell out of the sky and hit me square in my temple. After I woke up I realized that what had fallen upon me was a tic tac.
From my extensive research and practical knowledge, I know that a tic tac is 1.9 calories a tac. If you eat two that's 3.8 calories. A wonderful way to burn off that excess Christmas weight.
RuPaul is known to have people over for dinner and serve them nothing, but one tic tac. He is a true, gracious host. If only I'd been born on November 17th in 1960, I could have observed the manners of that time period.
I truly do have an infinity for tic tacs. I usually have on in my backpack Their sweet, tangy, and colorful. Just like me. They're like a delicious M&M without the calories. Their a beautiful thing.
Tic Tacs are for the better part just mints. Delicious mints, but mints none the best. Their perfect in case you ever find yourself about to make out with someone. You swirl it around in your mouth. The container is pocket sized. You can offer one to your kissing mate. Have to make sure you both are on the same minty freshness. Their perfect.
Now I've never actually cooked with tic tacs. Why ruin the low calorie appeal? But, for you. My favorite people I have done some research and you will be pleased to know that you too can cook with tic tacs.
