The Kirkland muffins used to be one of my favorites when I was younger. now I just can't justify the 600-690 Calories per muffin.

I like a muffin that can stand up to a good buttering.

That's such a downer about so many delicious foods. I wish I knew to savour Cinnabons, poutine, slurpees and KFC Big Crunches more when I was 18 and could eat an unlimited amount of anything. Or Pilsbury cinnamon rolls - I remember buying a sleeve of those, baking them, and eating them all in one sitting.

Now I just feel constantly guilty for eating too many calories on a normal day, and when I eat something amazing my enjoyment is tempered by the guilt even as I'm eating it.

Only since 2016, according to Wikipedia.

Switchback: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Switchback_(TV_series)

The same format with shared pre-produced segments aired across Canada on the CBC with different local hosts. I think Humble Howard only hosted for the first season before he left Calgary. After that, he was replaced by co-hosts. One of them was the guy who ran the caricature booth at the Stampede every year.

I don't know if Costco changed something in their ingredients around 3 or 4 years ago but I can't eat Costco muffins anymore without destroying my gut. In the past, I bought the muffins on pretty much every trip to Costco but now I only buy them once every three or four months and I regret it every time afterwards.

I eat lots of other pastry, cakes and cookies without issue so it must be something that has changed in the muffins.

Other kids or teened themed shows of the 80s and 90s was Scoop on 2 and 7,Spelling Bee on 2 and 7,and NRG with Anita Ritter, on 4 and 5.

There was a short-lived local kiddie show that CFAC offered as competition to CFCN's Buckshot Show called "Gwynn's Pad." It was basically this creepy hippie with a pornstache and matching polyester fringed vest/slacks combo with a paisley wide-collared shirt. Which was the style at the time.

Gwynn's sidekick was "Robbie The Robot" except he pronounced it "Robe-Bee." Anyway, Robbie was a non-ambulatory robot who talked and barfed out bags of Old Dutch potato chips and was probably just a pimped-out vending machine. They had to cut to commercial early one time because some kid got his hand stuck in Robbie's chute/mouth.

And I swear I'm not making this up.

I was an alternate, so I got to go. I also got to hand the card to Ed for the secret word, which was a geographical location (waskesiu?).

They showed us around the Kidstreet set next door too. Ice cream and pop provided post show as well.

Scoop either started in Lethbridge or we had our own version of it. I went to school with Lindy Moriyama and Tammy Jean Young, the original hosts.

In the 70s the Stamps were playing the Lions in the playoffs.

A Vancouver station put out a song "Beat Calgary" to the music of "Pop Muzik” by M.

CKXL responded with "Born To Beat The Lions" done to "Born To Be Alive" by Patrick Hernandez.

I think you're referring to Wynn's Pad. If we're talking about the same show, I wouldn't say it was competition for Buckshot but that's not important. Anyway, I was on the show as a kid, on my birthday or something. Liked the free chips.

Yes, Wynn's Pad. Thanks.

Turns out this guy was Wynn(e) Hanson and had a lounge act back in the day and even put out an album. Ended up owning a music store in Red Deer.

It was driving me nuts last night Googling "Gwynn's Pad."

I’ve only been on the ice there once but was shocked at how poor it was. Rutted and in terrible condition. And that was after a flood. I hope that’s just because they didn’t put a big effort into prepping it as the Flames were out of town at the time.
