Where Have I Been All Your Life?

So, let’s catch up. Aramie and Kacey (my sister and niece) were here for a few weeks and we had a good time. The girls did not get along, which was a bummer, but when you put two only children together, mayhem is guaranteed to ensue. So, in a nutshell, the girls fought, Aramie and I laughed and ate, my friends loved my sister (of course), and I almost choked to death twice. It was good times.

Now that my brother Nate and his wife, Haley, are moving down, something new has been brought to my realization. Hostess Ding-Dongs have 19 grams of fat and 360 calories a pop! Well, serving size is actually 2 dongs. I know that seems unrelated, but as skinny as my brother is, he is made up of probably 78% processed sugar. When Nate lives here, there is always good food around. So, between my brother and Frankie, the probability of diabetes just skyrocketed in the Parmenter household! Anyway, I only realized those ding-dong stats after I ate one! And I didn’t even like it that much.

What is something deplorable that you love to eat?


  1. What if your going to eat something from Hostess make it a cupcake or twinkie don't wast bad calories on a ding dong!!!

  2. I am laughing so hard over this phrase, "the serving size is 2 dongs."

    p.s. my guilty pleasure are Little Debbie Nutty Bars. Mmmmm.

  3. I have so SOO many bad things that I love to eat. Doughnuts from the BYU creamery is one. Also chocolate covered raisins and whoppers at the movies. Oh, and heavily HEAVILY buttered popcorn. Not very good.

    And anything with a whipped cream-like center (i.e. ding-dongs, twinkies, zingers, ho-hos, swiss rolls. . .shall I go on?) are so nice. I do love a cream-filled oil-based pastry on any day for any reason.

    And what did you almost choke on? Please say it was a ding dong!


tell me what you're screaming
