Back in the 70's, Weight Watchers was not the only game in town, you know. There were other weight loss plans, and most of them were pretty weird. In fact, the more I think about it, my little Retro WW Experiment is pretty healthy and normal by comparison. Anyone remember this catastrophe?
I still have vague childhood memories of seeing these little gooey chocolate tabs and desperately wanting to eat one, but being told "NO! Those are for grown ups only!".
Due to obvious marketing challenges, this diet fell swiftly by the wayside in the mid-eighties.
But almost 50 years after its inception -- WW is still around. So they must be doing something right. Or perhaps they just picked a more fortuitous name?
