I’ll preface this post by saying I’m pregnant. Fourteen weeks. Which is to say, all sorts of disgusting, horrifying snacks and treats sound pretty tasty right now. Since I probably won’t allow myself to eat a platter of deep fried jelly beans, I’ll settle for the visual.

Here are 12 totally disgusting yet delicious sounding treats calling my name…


  • Banana Croquettes 1 of 12
    Banana Croquettes
    I thought my husband was kidding the first time he told me about this but apparently it's a real thing (his mom used to make it for him and his siblings when he was a kid): Take a banana, slather it in mayonnaise then roll it in crushed, salted peanuts, insert into mouth. Yum, yum? (He swears it's delicious.)
  • Frosty & Fries 2 of 12
    Frosty & Fries
    Fast food French foods dunked into an ice cold chocolate milk shake. Bonus points if the French fries stand straight up.
  • Puppy Chow 3 of 12
    Puppy Chow
    Nothing like a delicious bowl of dog kibble in the morning! Kidding! This is actually powdered sugar on chocolate Chex Mix. I'd eat it. (Source: Orange County Register)
  • Deep Fried Jellybeans 4 of 12
    Deep Fried Jellybeans
    Because everything tastes better battered and fried. (Source: Buzzfeed)
  • Dried Apricots and Cream Cheese 5 of 12
    Dried Apricots and Cream Cheese
    This one doesn't technically belong on this list because it's too healthy.
  • Mac and Cheese Hot Dogs! 6 of 12
    Mac and Cheese Hot Dogs!
    The only thing that would make this snack more awesome was if the mac-n-cheese was injected INSIDE the hot dog, similar to the 80s delicacy The Frankenstuff (chili injected into a weiner). Source: Buzzfeed)
  • PB and Pickle Sandwich 7 of 12

    Also known as, the Pregnant Lady Classic. (Source: The New York Times)
  • Pickles and Ice Cream 8 of 12
    Pickles and Ice Cream
    Check out this recipe for Pickle Ice Cream.
  • Peanut Butter & Frosting Sandwich 9 of 12
    Peanut Butter & Frosting Sandwich
    I added the bananas here so you'd think I was being healthy, but my husband actually eats these things (without the bananas, naturally).
  • Deep Fried Oreos 10 of 12
    Deep Fried Oreos
    Can you feel your arteries clogging yet?
  • Deep Fried Twinkies 11 of 12
    Deep Fried Twinkies
    The only thing better than a Deep Fried Twinkie is a plate of them.
  • Taco in a Bag 12 of 12
    Taco in a Bag
    I was introduced to this fine culinary treat at the county fair here in rural Virginia. Take a bag of Fritos, cut it open, dump in some chili, shredded cheese and sour cream. Top with a plastic fork. Voila -- Taco in a Bag!
