For those who feel their love handles bulge just looking at that 90-calorie-flute of Champagne, a U.K. company has launched “Skinny Champagne,” offering all the bubbles with half the calories (again, we only started with about 90). “The fashion crowd especially loves the idea of drinking fizz with less fat!” exclaims founder Amanda Thomson, who wrangled real, live Frenchman Alexandre Penet into making some bubbly with no added sugar — which just means it’s very dry Champagne with no dosage. Don’t tell that to the chic dieters lapping up Thomson’s branding: Just days after launch, it’s all already out of stock. [Express]
