Top dietitians have reluctantly admitted that double chocolate fudge cake is, technically, a pretty good source of fiber.
The announcement comes after nutritionists finally conceded that chocolate fudge cake usually has around 1-5 grams of fiber, which could be as much as 20% of the recommended daily fiber intake.
“A slice of double chocolate fudge cake can have under a ten-to-one ratio of carbohydrates to fiber,” said Jerry Thomas, Northeastern University Biology Professor, “which, I guess, makes it a pretty good source of fiber.”
Following the announcement, both Betty Crocker and Pillsbury had updated their chocolate fudge cake marketing to include the term, “Approved by nutritionists as a high source of fiber!”
Americans everywhere have now been abandoning their Fiber One bars and All-Bran cereal for a good ol’ warm, hearty slice of double chocolate fudge cake.
“Look, we don’t want people to get carried away with this,” continued Thomas. “It would just be irresponsible of us not to admit that double chocolate fudge cake, technically, does contain a couple grams of fiber.”
“I’ve been trying to stay away from sugary desserts for years,” said area woman Marcel Dunham, “but now that I know it’s a good source of fiber, I’ll be baking my family a whole cake for breakfast every day.”
At press time, scientists were forced to admit that Tiramisu is actually an alright source of protein.
