Top Five Friday: Processed Foods

This is a challenge hosted every Friday by a pretty funny gal.  Adorkable Annie

Because I enjoy embarrassing myself and showing my true hypocrisy, here are my top 5 favorite processed foods: 

5)  Cheez-its - This obsession came back to smack me when I read Sara's amazing post about how she makes her own cheesy crackers.  Go check it out: The Splendidly Imperfect Miss M

4)  Starburst Jelly Beans - I am not a big sweets person, but these?  I will IV.  I usually just get them around Easter.  But, that's just a lucky hang-up I have.  Otherwise, I'd be 300 pounds.

3)  Diet Coke - Forget ever considering me healthy.  I love my aspartame. 

2)  Cheerios - Yes, I am still 3 and love having a little baggie of delicious whole-grain O's to munch on.  Or for breakfast with bananas or peaches and soy milk.  They get us young. 

1)  Tostitos Tortilla Chips - Crunchy, salty, delicious.  I will eat them until my lips crack open and bleed and my tongue goes numb.  I will eat them with salsa, guac, in nacho form, plain...heck I'd probably put chocolate sauce on them if someone dared me.

Where do you get your preservatives?


  1. Cheerios BARELY count. I demand a do-over for number two.

    I just posted my list on Facebook the other day in response to a Saveur article. ( )

    My five:
    1. Yellow cake from a mix with chocolate frosting from a can
    2. Totino's party pizzas
    3. Stove Top stuffing
    4. Hostess chocolate frosted Donettes
    5. Pigs in a Blanket (Lil' Smokies wrapped in crescent rolls from a tube)

    When I'm bad, I'm REALLY bad.

    (ps. thanks for the shout out!)

  2. Ohh! I hadn't seen that article. Cool!

    Alright. To replace's gotta be another variety of chip. Boring. But...Doritos? Potato chips? Anything to up my sodium.
