1.16.17 / Sugar Will Set You Free

 


With all the warnings about the toxic effects of sugar on the body and mind, isn’t it refreshing to look back to, say, 1954, when sugar was a virtue—indeed a necessary part of a balanced and shapely lifestyle? Slim and trim were words to live by, as long as sugar was an ingredient. Or to quote the Archies:

Sugar, ah honey honey
You are my candy girl
And you’ve got me wanting you
Honey, ah sugar sugar
You are my candy girl
And you’ve got me wanting you
