General Mills cuts more sugar from kids' cereals
Last year, General Mills cut the amount of sugar in 10 of its kids' cereals to 11 grams per serving. Now, it's bringing it down to no more than 10 grams. The company's ultimate goal is to reduce sugar to the single digits per serving. General Mills' cereals for children include Lucky Charms, Trix, and Cocoa Puffs.

Alcoholic whipped cream, anyone?
Before you have a slice of that pumpkin pie topped with whipped cream, check if that dollop has alcohol in it. Yes, alcohol. Whipped cream products infused with booze like Whipped Lightening and CREAM are gaining popularity. With 15 percent alcohol, they have more alcohol per volume than beer and deliver the same kick as many liqueurs.
I wonder if these so-called "whipohols" will soon join the ranks of the "Blackout in a Can" products.
