Little Big Bite
We salute any trend that is both wallet and waist-friendly including this latest goodie from the world of casual dining. Mass-market chains ranging from Applebee’s (above) to Chili’s to faux-foreigner P.F. Chang’s are introducing mini-sized desserts that are both far less costly — and calorific. Priced between $2 and $3, the “shot” and “shooter”-sized treats are roughly half the calories of regular desserts and prove that size — at least in this case — certainly doesn’t count for everything.
