Taste of Chicago Healthy Initiative

I'm kind of excited for the Taste of Chicago this year. The city is trying to encourage healthier choices by requiring each booth to have a healthy selection...some of the choices sound good!

  1. Are you kidding me? Potato chips and cheesecake are considered "'healthy" under this initiative. It's kind of a joke, IMO. Then again, who goes to Taste to eat healthy anyway?

      More to the point, who goes to Taste of Chicago to eat chow?

        Hey - that's ORGANIC tomato on your 12 oz of deep dish cheese and flaky crust. And APPLES in them pies. What could be heathier than tomatoes and apples? Sign me up. Except for those tofu skewers. Yech.
