Fight It: Swiss Miss Tapioca Pudding

Tapioca has long been considered a healthy food because, as a starch, it is easy to digest. In fact, in the 19th century it was often used as a medicine (don't ask us for what, we're just quoting Wikipedia). Despite the fact that people were using this stuff to help heal, in reality it is (and always has been) more of a dessert. And if you're gonna splurge and have some pudding for dessert, why not enjoy one that's lower in calories, sugar, and carbs -- and higher in fiber? Send this Swiss Miss on her merry little way and snuggle up to Kozy Shack's version instead.

Love the pudding myself, but have you read the new information about Tapioca having possible carcinogens and its' high calorie low nutrition facts. Scared me away from it for the most part.
