    Oh yeah, I'm eating donuts. Especially a chocolate covered eclair. Heaven.

    I go for the Boston cream donut. Pretty much the same thing in a slightly smaller package. ... But then I end up having a second one. :smile:

    pumpkin or pecan pie

    I think pumpkin pie is worth it (minus the crust)... pecan pie is def not worth it for me. Just sugar!

    Pie crust! I forgot pie crust. In my experience, at least 90% of all pie crust, even homemade, is really not worth the calories. I could spend the crust calories on another slice worth of filling. Of course, if it's homemade, I don't do that, because I don't want to hurt the baker's feelings.

    Agreed. Graham cracker crust or gtfo!

    I also like the chocolate wafer crumb (I guess they're Oreo crumbs). And I've made a "crust" from ginger snaps that's pretty good.

    Yep! Any kind of crust like that is good. which is why I like cheesecake, BK hershey's pie, etc.

    And pasta for me! It's the only thing I try to stay away from, i could eat the whole pot and still be hungry! (Unless it's cheese filled tortellini- those are worth it)

    most fried foods. Especially fried vegetables

    Excepting fried green tomatoes and fried okra, properly made, of course.

    For me, kakiage is worth the calories.

    Most coffee shop drinks. The "refresher" drinks at Starbucks are among my favorite for this reason.

    Nuts

    Trail mix

    Peanut butter

    Granola

    Sandwich bread

    Yogurt

    Soda

    Ice cream

    I bought a granola at Ottolenghi's from the delicatessen after eating at one of his restaurants. The most delicious granola ever, more dessert than breakfast. It was also outrageously expensive at £7.50 for a 500g bag. Then I found a blogger who typed in the recipe for it from one of his cookbooks. I put it in the recipe builder and discovered a 50g serving was 460 kcal without milk.

    I agree. Pretzels too, unless coated with peanut butter and/or chocolate. Along with cheez-it's and cheese doodles, just cheese flavored cardboard JMO

    Anything sweet. I prefer savory and have been known to order 2nd steak and skip dessert.
