[GD] The 37 Or So Ingredients In A Twinkie

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 



Quote:
The photographer Dwight Eschliman was never a health nut himself, but he was raised by one; his mom kept her kids away from meat, dairy, or any kind of processed food. When Eschilman went away to college, he loosened up a bit, allowing himself to indulge in all sorts of previously forbidden treats, but by the time he had kids of his own, he found a renewed appreciation for simple, healthy food—and a renewed skepticism of chemical-filled, preservative-laden snacks. He'd also developed a love of disassembling ojects and photographing their component parts.

I'll stick to my nice and healthy Ho Ho's thank you.

Good thing I avoid those little snacks... although I do have a weakness.... Zebra Cakes. :<

I've never eaten a twinkie in my whole life. I think he's cheating a bit, though. They don't really contain elemental iron, do they?

Nothing wrong with those ingredients and whats so special about being a health nut? You're going to die someday and everything is bad for you, you're better off eating what you want for the most part and being happy.

I've had one. It was decent. You need iron though. Ground up frosted mini-wheats and put a magnet to it. You'll get iron, and plenty of it

Animal Shortening= Animal Fat

By the look of these pictures, there isn't a lot of bad stuff.

Until you add the preservatives.

agreed. There is nothing wrong with enjoying the food you love. You need to be careful not to over indulge is all. And if you find yourself doing that then either cut back, start working out a bit (maybe even just running), or both! You shouldnt restrict yourself from enjoying life. It's asinine.

A little more on topic - I never liked Twinkies. Just not my thing I guess. Im very picky about cake-foods. I either love it or hate it. Though that photography is pretty cool though.
