negative calories


Don't they look like the real deal? Lipton is giving away these cell phone charms with a bottle of their iced tea.

Japanese love to collect things and these companies love to give stuff away in order to sell their products.

There are actually 6 in the whole collection, but I got these 4. I guess this is one way to go on a diet....the package says "not for consumption" in Japanese, or maybe not as I need to drink the pre-sweetened teas now...


Oh and awhile back, I bought these, again from Lipton, and sent them to Carol of Paris Breakfasts, she is totally hooked on miniatures!!

Certainly a good thing for the calorie-counting crowd. The way you're holding them makes me want to take a bite!

ps. I will begin to enjoy as soon as I buy myself some shorts. I am so melting in my cotton knit pants!

K and S said...

I usually am melting as soon as I get home too...Get yourself some shorts, Rowena!! and enjoy :)

So cute and realistic-looking! I couldn't carry these keychains around because I would get hungry every time I look at them.

P-T said...

I love that cream puff one!

K and S said...

I wonder if this is why I haven't put it onto my cell yet, Jenster??

P-T, cute, yeah??

Take care you two.

ilingc said...

I could've sworn that they were REAL!... until I read your text saying it wasn't.

I think they all look pretty surreal, except for the croissant. :)

K and S said...

aww, Carol, no need to send anything:) glad you enjoyed those minis!

I think it helped that I held it like I was going to eat it, Ilingc :)

Take care you two.
