Am I the only facebook page owner out there that is completely pissed off with how many of my actual fans can see my posts? Before the new change, I’d say about a good 80% of my fans saw my posts and now it’s only 25%. There were a few good posts of mine like the sausage and potato recipe that went viral on facebook and had over 100K in shares and that peanut butter brownie pizza recipe that was pretty much the same deal. Now I’d be happy if I got over 50 shares! It’s kind of sad. Maybe one day when enough page owners complain to facebook how nobody can see your posts anymore, they will change it back to the way it was.
Well, enough with the ranting…. I have been thinking about putting drinks/beverages on my site for quite some time now. I like to make my own cocktails at home, yep those types of drinks and have seen so many different kinds of slushy recipes out there. I posted a pink lemonade slushy recipe on my page that did pretty well. Going to try that one soon, so we’ll give this first one a shot.
Have you ever tried the frozen hot chocolate drink at dairy queen? I kind of laugh whenever I read frozen hot chocolate because it is an oxymoron. If you don’t know what an oxymoron is google it, because google is your friend. It’s basically hot chocolate mix that has ice in it. Kind of like how they make ice cold coffee. It’s a treat especially during the summer. This is a lightened up version of their Frozen Hot Chocolate. A small frozen hot chocolate has 260 calories and 29 grams of fat. This version only has only 111 calories and 1 gram of fat. Which version would you rather have? If you go to Dairy Queen, make sure to try the S’mores Blizzard. It is the flavor of the month now, and it is pretty awesome. Highly recommended. Infact, you could have some Frozen Hot Chocolate and a S’mores Blizzard. Use the hot chocolate as a chaser after your blizzard. 🙂
