People Confess The Food They Can't Buy Because They'll Eat The Whole Thing In One Sitting

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

"The larger size bags are a better value, but I almost always get a small bag. Why? Self-preservation."

"Regardless of how big the bag is, for me the serving size for chips is one bag."

- GrumpyCatStevens

"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."

- [Reddit]


"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."

- Ill-Marionberry-9071

Literally Heaven

"Fresh warm French bread that just came out of the bakery"

- Original-Area-8739

"Same with cookies, chips, anything."

- IReallyLiveCorn729

"Most snacks really. I don't have a sensible relationship with food."

- [Reddit]

A Fascination With The Frozen


"Not the fancy ones, that 3 dollar bag of 24 twin pops. Had my girlfriend come home and see the side table by the couch full of sticks and just shake her head in disappointment at me."

"It's a childhood addiction I'll never shake, I guess."

"When my partner wants to have PB in the house, she literally has to hide it from me. And I've found it a few times, so she has to get REALLY CLEVER every time she gets a new container."

"Last time she hid it in the toilet tank, and I found it because I had to repair the flapper device and found it in there."

- whomp1970

"I found my people. Can’t have it in the house. I will throw it away to save myself from myself."

"Everyone close to me knows it too, cuz I’ll announce it."

When we're little, we're inclined to believe things that seem ridiculous when we get older. Most of us believed in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy at some point. Many of us believed unicorns existed, or that there were monsters hiding under our beds.

When we were 10, my best friend and I convinced our younger brother that we were spies that went to a special spy school in the middle of the night to train. When I was 12, I managed to convince my soccer camp rival that I was pregnant with a carrot. I'm still not sure how that worked!

The point is, when we're children, we tend to believe a lot of silly, or even stupid things. However, some of us carry some of those stupid beliefs into adulthood.

Reddit users shared some of the stupidest things that they or someone they know still believe thanks to Redditor OnionChan_.

He asked:

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"
