    Man I remember having those, (with the packet of icing included). Good times, great for kids to get involved with cooking.

    I find that food doesn't taste as good without the trans fats.

    Carrot cake is the best cake. Anyone who claims otherwise gets beat. :mad:

    Eh, other than the overprocessed flour, and the dyes, there isn't much to worry about in that list of ingredients.

    Though xanthan gum is considered a pretty potent laxative. I'll leave that up to you all on whether that's a good thing or not.

    Not as bad as Twinkies. Can leave those things out on a countertop for years and nothing happens. Even a mouse would hesitate.

    I have to go beat the tstorm to dinner, so ciao for now.

    I am Disappoint. Please greet real white Death. Not whinging pearl-clutching cake.

    In the heat and amid pouring rain, the trusty(?) Chevota sits outside, expired inspection sticker and all, willing to drive or swim 30 miles round trip for a box of this stuff. Now. Too bad the A/C doesn't work. No sale! Far too hot to bake anyway. Now wondering if a carrot smoothie... nah.

    That stuff is great w/ hoppin' john in winter. Gonna die, that's a comfy way to go. But the fatback in the picture there, that's probably enough to kill three, four people. :D

    I think I'd need a side by side comparison.

    Home made is better without whatever preservatives they use to extend shelf life. A great option with home made is to use apple sauce to replace oil in the carrot cake recipe. :)

    Lol. I assume you all know that white death is a white sugar reference, but lard and white flour certainly should be included. :)

    Well, for cheesecake, I prefer the 'real' homemade (in other words, natural ingredients) stuff. Hence, as I don't make it myself, I will buy it.

    Frosting not included! WTH?! Cream cheese frosting makes the cake. You could probably put good cream cheese frosting on last night's hamburger and it would taste divine!

    Setting aside the fact that it's getting hard to make that comparison any more... I have decided that certain crackers I used to keep stashed in the pantry are not worth buying. There's just something sort of pre-dried-out that comes with the no trans fat way of making crackers. Somehow Town House managed to do a little better than Ritz. For me. Maybe.

    Anyway the nanny state got a twofer off of that one in my house. Not only am I skipping trans fat, I don't even eat carbs from crackers any more. :rolleyes:

    If it weren't for prepackaged stuff, I'd be dead now. Any time I attempt homemade food, I end up hurting myself.

    Well, maybe I'm not being entirely fair with myself here. It took me a little bit, but I've become decent at smoking, and I've been doing alright with one of those food services I recently subscribed to, which sends you a bunch of raw ingredients along with a few recipe, but otherwise expects you to slap it all together yourself.

    The Chipotle steak I made last week ended up being so, so rad.

    Carrot cake is one of the few cakes I can eat without frosting, and still like. Though yeah, the frosting does make it a lot better.

    Not so sure about the hamburger thing, though.

    It's not just crackers and cookies. I used to love Paneria Bread till they changed to a healthy menu and took the taste out of the food.

    I do too, but Carrot Cake not so much. :p

    @Huntn your subject line made me giggle. Thanks for the laugh and enjoy your delicious helping of White Death sir. (She who just realized she's only eaten two Brazil nuts today. Sheesh, that needs to be rectified pronto!)
