12 Gross-sounding Yet Yummy Snacks I’m Craving While Pregnant

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
    PB and Pickle Sandwich
    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!
