Old School Thursday: Reversing the Effects of the Sticky Bun Edition

Happy National Sticky Bun Day. Here’s a recipe to help you celebrate.

The rest of “today in history” news is all about mitigating the effects of that sticky bun. Today in 1931, Alka Seltzer was introduced, though the famous “plop, plop, fizz, fizz” jingle didn’t come along for 41 more years. (And I just learned it was written by Juliana Margulies' dad. Interesting.)

Fast-forward to the 80’s. In 1985, nutritionist and proponent of exercise and a low-fat, high-(good) carb diet, Nathan Pritikin died. Then, in 1989, the USDA approved Simplesse, a low-cal fat substitute that I’ve never heard of.

And that’s about it. I think I’ll focus on the sticky bun…
