    Feds ban school’s beloved "pink cookie"

    School children in Elyria, Ohio are mourning the demise of a 40-year tradition – the loss of their beloved pink cookie. The fabled cookie, long served in local school cafeterias, was done in by a pound of butter, six cups of powdered sugar and the Obama administration’s food police.

    “It no longer meets the national school lunch program guidelines for snacks,” said Amy Higgins, the spokesperson for Elyria City Schools. “It has too many calories.”

    The USDA “Smart Snacks in School” standards mandate that all snacks must contain less than 200 calories.

    The cookie was banished to comply with the federal guidelines.

    “We can’t have them in the cafeteria for sale, period,” food services director Scott Teaman told The Chronicle Telegram. “The guidelines for snacks are very strict, and there is no wiggle room.”

    Anyone who’s gone to Elyria schools in the last 40 years knows the pink cookie.” Elyria Mayor Holly Brinda remembered tasting her first pink cookie when she was just a little girl. “I grew up eating them,” said Brinda. “They are a comfort food. It’s one of those things that’s special to our community.”

    The mayor says the cookie’s demise is the talk of the town.

    “This cookie has a cult following,” she said. In 2009 the cookie was crowned “Best Cafeteria Cookie” by Cleveland Magazine.

    Instead of pink cookies, kids will be able to eat things like fruit and vegetables and yogurt. <portions snipped>
    Yay vegetables and yogurt. Is there anything that Demopukes don't ruin.

    Look at this evil. LOOK AT IT!!!1!1!!!!!!!!. This is what evil looks like to a bunch of dopes:

    Make'm smaller, not less good.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Make them at home or buy them at the store. Put in backpack.
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    Sorry, kids! No cookies!

    Here are some Brussels Sprouts to go with your liver and tofu. Be sure to eat your kale!

    And then the Michelle Obama lunchroom fascists will just steal that child's cookies and throw them in the garbage, unfortunately.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    I've seen many facebook posts about how kids are throwing away most of their school lunch this year as it tastes so bad. It will just increase more students bringing their lunch, and less jobs for the school district. The only one eating the school food will be the ones receiving free or reduced meals at school.

    I want a big, fat, cheerful First Lady who believes in giving kids a cookie every once in a while. I'm so done with the Mooche.

    NYC Democrat Wants To Ban Toys In Fast-Food Kid Meals
    https://sg.news.yahoo.com/ny-council...024222232.html

    A New York city councilman wants to ban toys in fast-food restaurant kid meals that do not meet strict dietary guidelines.

    Democrat Ben Kallos introduced a bill Thursday that would ban the toys from a child's meal if the food serving contains more than 500 calories and more than 600 milligrams of sodium.

    The measure would also encourage including one half-cup of fruit or vegetables, or a serving of whole-grain products.

    Under the proposal, violators would be fined between $200 and $500 for their first offense, no more than $1,000 for the second violation, and up to $2,500 for subsequent violations.
