    considering the fact that a hot pocket such as this described here tastes so good, who cares whats inside? Isnt every frozen treat waiting to be nuked made up of as many, if not more, ingredients as this? Its a new era of laziness for cooking. “I got the munchies, oh man, hot pockets!”

    I remember Sundays in the kitchen with Grandma, whipping up the week’s fresh batch of L-Cysteine Hydrochloride.

    just want you guys to know that right after you posted about this little gem the first time, my husband and I decided to never eat Hot Pockets again (not that we ate them much in the first place, but this sealed the deal).

    That doesn’t make them any less delicious.

    Modified food starch & Autolyzed Yeast Extract = MSG, partially hydrogenated fats, food coloring (which are carcinogens), several types of sugar, preservatives…my goodness, is it any wonder Americans are soooo unhealthy?

    Hmmm. If you’re going to make a typographic poster, you should probably at least google “kerning” first.

    I always thought “Hot Pockets” should be a nickname for a male prostitute.

    I could be wrong, but this looks like it was generated with Wordle – a fun little ap that generates “word clouds”.

    It is a fun way to waste a couple hours…

    This really makes me want some hot pockets. Mmm, milk, egg, garlic, cheese, ham… WANT!

    I’d totally put this on my wall so my friends and I could snark at what the poor eat. Nyah hahaha.

    Now, can anyone point to one of these ingredients and give a specific issue with it? I only see *two* ingredients I actually avoid (and those two are closely related). Can you guess what they are?

    (They’re the two that contain significant amounts of trans fat.)

      You’re right. I didn’t look at it the first time, so I assumed it listed a whole lot of chemicals and whatnot, but it’s really just a whole lot of ingredients. Not exactly healthy, but what do people expect from a ready-made turnover?
      Btw, was palm oil one of the ingredients you avoid?…I do.
