I didn't even make it to the sweet section...

Stopped at the third one down actually. Why in the world do I always find myself on this tab, out of the entire internet, at exactly the time I am hungry and cannot eat.

Eh, I would totally try 6 or 7 items from the savory list. Top picks there for me are the soul food eggroll and holy biscuit.

Only one from the sweet list that remotely interests me is the raspberry chipotle sopapilla thingy.

waxbeans: Texas sounds fat


CSB:
When I moved from Florida to Texas*, I had been driving for quite a while through Louisiana and things started looking drier. I figured I might be in Texas then, but I hadn't seen any of the "Welcome to Texas" signs or visitor's centers or anything that's typically at the borders of each state on main highways.

So I call up my brother, who lives in Austin and to whom I'm going to be living with temporarily thus the move to Texas, and tell him my situation; that I think I might be in Texas but don't know for sure. There's definitely Texas license plates, but still a lot of Louisiana ones too. My brother says, "Well, look around, what do you see?" I'm near a little town and I need gas, so I pull off and get to a gas station and look around.

"Well," I say, "It doesn't look all that remarkable... except, uh, the people here in whatever town I'm in all seem really, really fat."

My brother responds immediately, "Yep, you're in Texas!"

*The only reason I'd ever move to Texas is to escape Florida.

My mom used to make something similar to the "dilly dog." She would wrap a dill pickle spear in hamburger, then use toothpicks to hold a piece of bacon wrapped around THAT, then my dad would cook them on the grill. She called them "dill burgers." Compared to some of the other monstrosities my mother came up with, they weren't that bad.

Sounds good
Sugar overload
Again, no sweet potato

sounds to me like a contest to determine who can make the least healthy food product  that can be served from a stand at a fair or similar event.
