Deep Fried Twinkies - As Bad For You as They Sound?

I know you want me to say, "No, go ahead. Enjoy. They're great for you. Have one. Have another. Eat a whole bunch."

But come on people. It's a Twinkie, that's chilled and then deep-fried in tempura batter and oil for 2 minutes. The cooking process melts the vanilla-cream center, which infuses the yellow cake and gives it a souffle or pudding-like texture. Finally, the treats are sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with either chocolate or berry sauce.

I think I gained a pound just writing that.

Here's the break down:

1 Twinkie = 150 calories (alone)
Batter and oil = 275 calories
Total Damage = 425 calories

You could get a whole slice of apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the same amount of calories.

Not into Twinkies? Wanna know how the deep-fried Snickers Bar adds up? Then

Order the King-Size version and you'll be downing over 700 calories and 44 grams of fat.

And that's not the worst of it. Some pubs serve their fried candy bars with a side of fries and call it a meal. Now that's what I call junk food. I think the fried Snickers should be added to the list of foods you should never eat.
