At Least It Isn’t Fried

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

If you’re already struggling to stay on the bandwagon of New Year’s healthy eating resolutions, it might be a good idea to look away now*. Some people mostly crave sweet snacks (chocoholics, unite!), while others favour salty morsels, but there are more and more ways to combine the two. Bacon cupcakes. Salted caramel. Pretzel M&Ms.

This one is a little more dramatic, if also a little more style-over-substance in its combination of sweetness and saltiness...

What it lacks in not being fried, I suspect it more than makes up for in the sugar and butter department. Or is it better to have your food-disguised-as-other-food at least have the appearance of being healthy? I wonder if it also carries a double serving of guilt? Especially in January...

* Well, it was probably a good idea to look away quite a while ago, given the amount of food that makes its way on here, and its rarely healthy properties. But if you are still here, I’m very pleased to have you!
