cheetosbw

Cheesy and cheery to make you chunky

Are Cheetos nutritious? No, the cheese part does not make them nutritious. They are filled with salt, processed cheese, and corn...

onionringsbw

Would you like an order of fat with your burger?

Onion rings are another delicious fast food. I love the soft oniony inside and the crunchy batter outside. Unfortunately, the deep frying part renders these puppies into a very fatty snack....

friesbw

America's Favorite Vegetable

The average American eats 30 pounds of french fries a year. I found this statistic on a website devoted to the history of french fries. French fries are a much loved staple for us Americans. We probably out do the Belgians who consider them a national treasure.

fritosbw

Corn, oil, and salt combined to fill you up

Hey, wait a minute! Almost 600 calories in a bag of Fritos??!! That is ludicrous. Yeah, it is. Maybe YOU will be able to stop yourself from eating the entire bag.

beefjerkybw

Mechanically separated meat is not good for you

The stick of jerky photographed here is actually not beef. I was shocked to discover that I had purchased a stick of jerky made with pork and something called "mechanically separated chicken". Okayyy.

cupcakebw

Would you like chemicals with your cupcakes?

The Hostess website claims that there is a person in Florida who eats 4 Hostess cupcakes a day. So, at 680 calories, I hope she is replacing a meal with them (cupcakes for breakfast anyone?)....

twinkiebw

The poster child for junk food

What can I say that hasn't been said? These little snack cakes are the definition of junk food. They are so hard not to love. And they sell 500 million of them a year.

donutbw

Doughnut - stick it on your thigh

I love donuts so much that a friend once suggested that I become a police officer. I realize this is a slander against police officers, and I apologize to them, but the connection has to do with staying up all night and getting a snack from the only place that is open at 3 AM...

snickersbw

Snickers satisfies the need for sugar

"Snickers Really Satisfies" goes their marketing jingle. I think that the company that makes them (Mars Bars) wants to remind you that they have peanuts in them, and that they will stop your hunger.

noodlebw

Full of salt and lacking in nutrients

Is this a snack or a meal? Well, I think many people would still feel hungry if you had just a cup of noodles for lunch, so I think it is a snack....
