FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1989

hile a registered
pharmacist and
owner of Grove
Drugs downriver back in
1979, Marty Benson had
diabetic and calorie-conscious
customers who would tell him
about how much they loved
ice cream but couldn't eat any
. . . Especially diabetics, to
whom the word sugar is
poison.
And so began the saga of
how an ex-pharmacist, now
co-owner of the American
Bulk Foods chain with. Nate
Fink, went on a four-year
trial-and-error campaign that
began in his and wife Sandy's
kitchen . . . and further tested
in the laboratory of their
Dearborn store and corporate
offices . . . In 1987, he in-
troduced his finished product.
Today, Marty's sugar-free
soft-serve Slimmery ice cream
is the wonder that diabetics
have hoped for . . . and the
dream calorie-conscious folks
can enjoy without guilt.
It is a soft and creamy
dessert completely sugar-free
and 98 percent fat-free with
only 60 calories in an eight-
ounce serving.
Sugar-free, soft-serve Slim-
mery is available in this area
only at American Bulk Food
on Orchard Lake Road, south
of Maple, in the West Bloom-
field Plaza . . . It can be got-
ten in 50 different flavors .. .
from butter pecan, fudge,
cherry, lemon, raspberry,
strawberry, banana, candy
cane, etc. . . . including a host
of fruit varieties . . . plus, of
course, the conventional
vanilla and chocolate.
Even the oodles of delicious
toppings, from hot fudge on,
are also sugar-free.
Most ice creams have from
16 to 22 percent butterfat .. .
Slimmery has only 2 percent
. . . and easily meets the
guidelines of both the
American Heart Association
and American Diabetic
Association.
Plus it's almost 1,500 items,
the American Bulk Food store
on Orchard Lake Road in
West Bloomfield, run by
Sandy and Marty's son,
Mitch, is a veritable health
ice cream parlor . . . with five
tables and 10 chairs . . .
where other than carry-out,
people cr.n eat plain Slim-
mery . . . or sundaes of choices
among six sugarless toppings
. . . hot fudge (also caffeine-
free), cherry, strawberry,

pineapple,
apple
and
blueberry.
There's even a complete
Slimmery Department now at
American Bulk Food in West
Bloomfield Plaza . . . with a
pastry case full of Slimmery
products . . . cheese cakes
(blueberry, cherry, pineapple),
black forest cakes, tortes,
mousse (rocky road, chocolate,
lemon, strawberry), French
creme rolls, shortcakes
(vanilla, strawberry, blue-
berry, cherry, pineapple,
apple, coconut) . . . plus a
lineup that'll make most
bakeries drool . . Brownies,
apple streudels, individual
and large pumpkin pies,
cream horns, fruit fluffs,
banana cream pies, chocolate
cream pies, mousse cream
pies, light puddings, jelly
rolls, filled eclairs, filled
cream puffs, etc. . . . and all
sugar-free!
Also sugar-free muffins .. .
oat bran, blueberry, cherry
nut, apple cinnamon, raisin
spice, etc. . . . among 30
varieties that are baked daily.
Mitch worked at Grove
Drug Store for dad and is
always halping develop new
products . . . Sandy and Mar-
ty sent him to work with
Manfred Zette in St. Louis,
who specialized in low-calorie
cuisine at his restaurant .. .
The popular sugarless French
creme rolls are among Mitch's
concoctions.
Those muffins, by the way,
at American Bulk Food on
Orchard Lake Road are load-
ed with no's . . . No sugar, no
cholesterol, no eggs, no milk,
no animal fat or protein .. .
and two yesses . . . They're
kosher . . . and quite
delicious.
In other words, folks giving
up calories and added sugar
do not have to give up sweet
treats . Sugar-free candies
are another specialty . . . with
bins containing goodies
galore.
American Bulk Food in
West Bloomfield opened its
dors Oct. 11, 1988 . . . and is
a seven-day-a-week operation
. . . Monday through Satur-
day, 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and
Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Those former customers of
Marty Benson when he was a
practicing registered phar-
macist not only spurred him
into a happy, healthful ven-
ture, but are no doubt
themselves a joyful lot these
days.
Slimmery can be compared
somewhat as enjoying sin
without the sin.

ORDERING an A&W Root
Beer during May will salute
work of the Arthritis Founda-
tion . . . "Help Bear Their
Pain" is the catchy name
given to a serious fundraiser
sponsored by A&W Restau-
rants . . . 10 cents will be
donated to the Arthritis
Foundation for every frosted
mug of A&W Root Beer sold.
Arthritis is a serious
disease . . . far more
devastating than the minor
aches and pains many people
look on it to be . . . The facts
about arthritis are staggering
. . . More than 37 million
Americans have some form of
arthritis, including some

Sugar-free, fat
free, low-cal and
delicious . . . in 50
different flavors.

71,000 children with
rheumatoid arthritis . . . In
almost all cases, arthritis is
chronic . . . Often this painful
disease affects people be-
tween the ages of 20 and 50.
Probably the worst problem
about arthritis is the "image"
most of us have when we hear
somebody has this disease .. .
Most people think it only af-
fects elder folks and arthritis
can't be very serious . . . that
it is only "minor aches and
pains." . . . This is a fallacy, a
myth . . . It is horribly pain-
ful . . . On bad days, writing,
eating or getting out of bed is
nearly impossible . . . and
there is no cure . . . Medica-
tion is expensive and often
has damaging side effects.
Exercise and rest are
critical to treating arthritis,
but many often avoid exercise
because of the pain or do not
properly rest themselves .. .
The Arthritis Foundation
conducts self-help courses
teaching how to adapt to the
changes the body is going
through, and how to avoid the
depression that so often ac-
companies the disease . . . If
interested, call Dawn Hafeli,
Metro Detroit Branch direc-
tor, 350-3030.
Monies raised by A&W Root
Beer sales will be used to sup-
port both research and local
programs like the Arthritis
Self Help Course and Help
Line, where questions are
answered and information is
sent out free of charge.

sidiary of Taubman In-
vestments, is projecting a
