And you wonder why some keep putting on the pounds?

According to the NY Times today, General Mills almost spiked their yogurt Yoplait with sugar to transform it from a healthy, low cal treat to a dessert. With a yearly revenue to General Mills of $500 million (1999), it was a real money maker for General Mills.  NYT said it had twice as much sugar per serving as the General Mills sugar treat marshmallow  cereal Lucky Charms.

If you eat yogurt, do you check the sugar content or not?
