    Looks that way! Yes, with Yodels/swiss rolls, there was a whole ritual of denuding the top, trying to keep the icing as whole as possible; and then the unrolling and eating of the roll itself. Strudel, yes! They should make cakes that are only strudel....

    Yes, me too! with that nice little "foot" on the side that detached so cleanly. Ah, memories...!

    Back with another one: both beef and pork are extremely overrated.

    Those are unfamiliar to me, but they look really tempting. Icing on the bottom, too? Hmm, strategy needed to get the most out of this.

    My mom used to make apple crisp with a strudel topping, just sugar/flour/butter. At at certain young age - old enough to cook, young enough to do dumb stuff ;) - I can remember just making the strudel topping, baking and eating it.** This is still an available option. :lol:

    **Personally, my tastes have changed (and long since, well before pursuing weight loss). On the rare occasions I make apple crisp, I prefer a heartier topping with some oatmeal, maybe chopped walnuts, sweetened certainly, but way less sugar/butter. Mom's version tastes way too sweet to me, now. It had a nice crunch, though, and I fondly remember how, when baked atop the sliced apples, it was crunchy on top but soft on the bottom. :smile: :yum:

    Little Debbie zebra cakes?

    Finally tried those and they were ok. I'm not a fan of white chocolate, tho, but I kinda wanted it for the creamy inside (I think I had the roll version...not much cream in that).

    I DID buy the Mrs Freshley's version of ho ho/swiss cake rolls at the 99 cent store. 100 calories each roll so woo!

    Possibly. We weren't Little Debbie people, growing up. For us it was Hostess and Evingers. When Evingers went out of business, first we all cried and then we resorted to Entenmanns.

    My father loved the vanillas. He also liked Social Teas and Nilla Wafers. I remember he would dunk the Social Teas into his sweetened coffee, but never the Wafers.

    Alfredo sauce is gross.
    If I'm having pasta, it needs to be with a tomato-based sauce.

    High carb high fiber diets are the healthiest

    Mayonnaise is the devil's jism and the foul, manky gunk ruins everything it touches.

    Any flavour of Jaffa cake other than orange is wrong. Especially pineapple and cherry. Stop faffing with a classic.

    Rich Tea biscuits are seriously underrated. They're not plain or bland, they are merely unfussy and all the better for it. The perfect dunking biccy.

    I love it but don't eat it often because it doesn't sit well with my stomach. :(

    I used to have issues with corn, but they seem to have gone away. I also love it, but mostly only eat it when it's in season. I have a farm share and get overwhelmed with it for a while in the summer. I did pick up a bag of frozen corn for my stay at home time.
