How could something so bad, bad, bad for you taste so good, good, good?
Because humans are programmed to LOVE, crave, and seek copious amounts of fat and sugar. Mrs. Paleo would have eaten these until she keeled over in glutted, glorious sugar-buzz bliss.
Who can blame her?
But Mrs. Paleo wouldn't have stumbled upon a Krispy Kreme tree or bush. She was too busy picking berries and hunting down mastodons. There were no Krispy Kreme stores in Paleo-Land.
Only we the lucky of the 21st century, only we get stuck having to resist Krispy Kremes day in and day out.
