Should the Food and Drug Administration require chain restaurants to list the caloric information for alcoholic beverages alongside the caloric information the agency has proposed the restaurants list for their menu items? There is an argument that they should, especially when you consider that many of these beverages are basically ice cream and other sweet stuff. The FDA seems to take the position that it does not have authority over these “drinks.” Here is my position: DRINK REAL DRINKS. Ice cream is for children. I don’t know why I need to keep saying this, but apparently I do, so I will put it as succinctly as possible in hopes that it finally sinks in: “Drink alcohol. Quite a bit. Mostly bourbon.” It’s so simple! [Via]
