What Processed Dessert Do You Eat?

geeksugar pointed me to a very interesting article that I had to share with all of you. I've never been a fan of processed foods, I have an occasional Cheez-it or Oreo every few months, but in general I avoid those aisles at the supermarkets. Thank goodness, because the article discussed a few fun facts about Twinkies.

  • Ingredients include boiled down human urine and limestone.
  • Both Twinkie cream and rocket fuel derive their slippery sheen from a fun substance called cotton cellulose.
  • Despite urban legend after a nuclear war Twinkies will last only 24 days.

I guess I didn't need to know these facts to not eat these "desserts," I knew it all along. Perhaps after reading this you will never again eat a Twinkie or other processed desserts, but up until this moment, what processed desserts did you eat?

I like Poptarts and Hostess Cupcakes, but it has been years since I have had either.

when i was younger, i ate little debbies (namely zebra cakes and fancy cakes. oatmeal cream pies for a brief period as well!) ALL the time. used to LOVE chocolate chip pop-tarts, the mini cosmic brownies, used to eat honey buns non-stop. used to eat many glazed krispy kremes. i had/have a major sweet tooth. soo not good for my health. i am surprised i didn't weigh more/have diabetes back then! now i am much more conscious of my weight and my diet decisions, so those are things i would rarely, if ever, touch again. i might have a bite from someone else but it'd be really hard to get me to eat an entire snack cake or pie or whatnot. not gonna lie, they're still a little tempting and soo delicious, but i know it's in my best interest to stay away. and those twinkie facts?! gross!! boiled down human urine?? my mom still buys low-fat twinkies on occasion and tries to get me to eat one. fat chance!

Tastykakes remind me of home, and they are cheap - I am not proud of it, but I could live on butterscotch krimpets, chocolate juniors, and creme-filled cupcakes.

Pop tarts are the ultimate survival food. College, camping, any other activity starting with a "c," and a pop tart will see you through. :P

Thanks for the shout out - I chose pop tarts because I think they are pretty and my mom never let me eat them when I was a kid...funny thing about twinkies (and this relates to my mom thinking sugar is evil)...I had my first twinkie when I was 22! I've never tried a home run, hostess or anything!

I enjoy the occasional twinkie and pop tart. I'm seriously going to be on an all organic diet, I just watched Fast Food Nation, I probably won't eat another hamburger again. Style Before Comfort!

I'm big into those oatmeal creme pie things (though that's a totally sick name to write out, for some reason). Do those count?

Uhm, the twinkie stuff really killed it for me. I had a twinkie as my cake for my first birthday!!! I really enjoy Moon Pies, though, so hopefully there isn't any urine in that...

The only thing up there I eat is poptarts, but boxed cookies and such I will indulge in occasionally. I just hate Hostess products, and clearly with good reason!

I like hostess cupcakes...but i only have them like, 4 times a year. when i am on a road trip, and it is like 3 in the morning...that sort of thing. my past time was brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts, doritios and root beer...i lost weight eating those at night 3 times a week...not gonna tell you the underlying reason why though lmao _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?
