  • Not as bad for you as other snacks!! Example.. mini marshmallows have no fat and only 80 calories per 1/2 cup, a tastykake junior has 320 calories for 1 cake 13g of fat and 32g of sugar, ....

  • Everything's ok in moderation. Just ask the high fructose corn syrup people.

  • They're just sugar and gelatin. Not the best thing ever but as long as you don't eat a lot of them you'll be fine.
