I am weak.
Frozen Reese’s Peanut Butter Mini-Cups.
No matter how healthy I try to be, no matter how high-quality I keep my snacks, no matter how many granola bars and fresh grapes and baked chips and guacamole I keep in the pantry, I will always succumb to these completely bad for you, utterly snackable things.
They’re my nemesis, the candy I can’t resist. Even the Milky Ways I love so much often lay untouched in Maxine’s candy dish, but if I see a bag of peanut butter cups before the angel and devil can even appear on my shoulders I’ve already bought it and stuck it in my freezer. There they remain, a guaranteed late-night snack partnered with guilty slugs from a bottle of skim milk (that’s about as helpful as diet coke topping off a McDonalds meal).
How bout you, readers? What utterly bad-for-you foods can you not resist?
-Jim, wishing he would at least get some class and cook some of these instead
