I remember when hot pockets first came out. My freshman year of college. I rode my bike to the grocery store and bought a box. I cooked them exactly as instructed on the box. They tasted and looked like folded over undercooked pizza crust with a lot of grease.

Hot Pockets are the one food I consider actively hateful. This only reinforces that view.

Nothing brings me more pleasure then openly a frozen lump of shiat and inserting it into a sleeve.. Then after 5 painful minutes waiting for them to cook have to wait another 5 minutes or more for it too cool down so the lava outer edge keeps me out of the burn unit.  Then the most appetizing part. Once I get past 1 inch of the outer part it becomes colder, and colder, and colder and find out the middle is somehow farking ice cold.

Who still farking eats this atrocities?

It's been a decade, at least, since I've had one, but I recall you need to use a real oven/toaster oven for them to be not horrible. Microwave is for popcorn and heating liquids only.

How sh*t is your microwave that it fails so hard? 3.5 minutes for 2, fully cooked through, no lava, no ice.

/doesn't eat them but a cousin I babysit loves them

I knew a guy who loved them! College educated, owned his house, could eat anything he wanted. Hot pockets. I never understood.

I didn't like the crust.  Do they make them with pretzel crusts?  They make Pop Tarts with pretzel crusts now, but I haven't tried them yet.

Assuming it's not operator error, your microwave sucks

Think things are bad now? Wait until the IT workers that keep all the server farms going begin to starve.

"Hot Pockets may contain bits of glass and plastic."

That's a risk I had all already come to terms with; I thought it was understood.

The last time I saw anyone eating those was a recently-divorced coworker whose only source of food for the previous two decades was his ex-wife. He ate so many hot pockets that people half his age were offering to teach him to cook.

Hot Pockets: sustenance only if you are in your late teens or in the throes of a mid-life crisis so severe that everyone notices.

Well, mostly that's true. I don't eat that crap anymore, but the Stouffer Crustini's were a guilty pleasure. Hot Pockets are an abomination.

I eat a lot of microwave food, I work the graveyard shift at a factory in a small town so if I want a hot lunch it's coming from a microwave.

I will never understand who is buying hot pockets.  The best one is the pepperoni pizza, but it's still far inferior to a cheaper microwavable personal pepperoni pizza.
