Food Villains #26: Hostess

July 01, 2014 1 min read

If it is made by the brand "Hostess", it's a food you NEED to stay away from. Ever since the first "Twinkie" hit the market all those long decades ago, Hostess has basically ruled the sweet treat market. Sure, there are brands that offer some competition to Hostess, but most gas station convenience stores are like a shrine to the puffed flour, high sugar treats made by the company. And you can bet your boots that every last one of these products are loaded with sugar, fat, and more chemicals than the unleaded gasoline itself! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="564"] Source: firstwefeast.com[/caption] For example, take the Hostess Chocolate Pudding Pie. Sure it's darn tasty, but it contains:
  • 45 grams of sugar
  • 24 grams of fat (saturated AND trans fats)
  • 520 calories
And that's just in one little pie! You've essentially just eaten ¼ of your daily allowance of fat and calories, and given your body ZERO nutritional value. To make things worse, the damn things are ridiculously cheap. Each costs less than a bottle of DASANI water, so of course you're going to buy them when you feel peckish! My advice: Drive away while you still can!(Don't buy snacks, but if you must, stick with fresh fruit and some beef jerky.)   Featured Image Source: www.vanityfair.com Resources: http://eatthis.menshealth.com/slideshow/30-worst-foods-america
