Hi folks...the day you've been waiting for is finally here.
FRIDAY...and even better than that it is Sunshine Mama's second edition of Fantasy Food Friday where I talk about one of the foods that I fantasize about, but can't necessarily eat because I'm trying to eat healthy.
This week after much deliberation...I decided to share with you one of my all time fantasy foods.
Hostess Fruit Pies...Cherry to be exact.
I'm sure they even have these in Canada. And, if they don't, Dawn, let my know and I'll mail one to you. Though, knowing you, you'd probably prefer steak. Now... LiL Miss Blogger and Lindsey might be with me on feeling the love for these fruit pies.
First of all, I just want to say it has been years...literally years since I have actually eaten one of these calorie loaded pies. I think the last time I had one was before I was married like eight to ten years ago. There is so, so many calories in one...like between 470-500 calories. And, off brand ones may be even higher calorie.
But this is my story behind the fruit pies.
I first experienced one of these when I was around 12 or 13. I actually had to sneak them. You see I had a paper route in the morning. I would bike over to the local grocery store sometime during my route and buy one for like 59 cents. I think now they may cost $1.89. I loved them so much. I can't recall how many mornings I would indulge in these things...but they were many.
Looking back I may have even gained a few pounds from eating these fruit pies.
So, what's so great about these?
Well, first there's the outside pastry shell...Ah...it is loaded with trans fat, but it tastes so good. It's shell is slightly firm, but soft. Sometimes I would eat around the outside first and then enjoy the cherry filling on the inside. To this day, I love pie filling.
But, now I've never tried this...
Wow...what a good idea.
