Not Disappointed

I had a Reese’s mini Blizzard and it was just right!  I can’t eat these everyday, they are still around 340 calories for the candy versions, but when I really want a treat I can eat a mini and feel satisfied, not bloated.  Thanks, DQ!

P.S.  I can ride my bike to our DQ, but I haven’t taken advantage of that, yet.  Then I could feel like I burned some of those calories just getting there.
