I cannot be trusted with chocolate marshmallow cookies.

I don't even like marshmallows, but something happens in my brain when I bite into it and I no longer have an ability to say no. It doesn't even matter what brand - could be Mallomars, or pinwheels, or whatever your local store brand is.

Doesn't matter, just put it in the freezer and walk away. It's best you forget about it, because you'll never see the box again.

Reddit user ts_13_ asked:

"What’s a food you can’t buy because you will literally eat the entire thing in one sitting?"

Never. See. The. Cookies. Again.

But I don't feel bad about it, cause I'm absolutely not the only one out here with self control issues. Here are Reddit's snack confessions.

Serving Size

"Same, can’t open a bag of chips/chip-like things (Doritos, Cheetos, etc.) without it being gone and me being full of shame."

"Crunchy, salty, and savory is a deadly combo for me."

"The routine is eat half the bag, lie to myself and save the other half for another day…an hour later eat the rest of the bag."

Some people are far more conscious of their health than others.

Be it out of obligation or self-interest, many people make a point of avoiding certain foods and products, and partaking in extreme diets and exercise plans.

Indeed, all of us are probably unaware that we all likely partake in eating food, using products, or even performing what might seem like everyday activities which could be harmful to our health.

So many kids deserve better.
