Dude, no deep fried snickers or deep fried Kool-Aid? wth... I definitely had my share of little debbies and hostess products growing up. The word that comes to mind now is: synthetic.

I think it's a tie between Twinkies and Easy Cheese -- the stuff that you squirt out of a can. And that orange cheese powder they put on cheese-balls. That stuff makes me nauseous.
5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 111 on sugar cheat. Currently fighting off sugar/candy cravings with bulletproof cocoa and a little rice.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
I'll cop to a "Tofurkey" full dinner bought on sale post t-giving from the local food co-op. I did not realize that it needed to be unwrapped before cooking and ate some w/ the cooked plastic still attached. Taste wise, this did not make a difference. I doubt it did nutritionally either. The beginning of the end of the vegan experiment.
Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.
Probably tofu sausages on fresh whole rye bread with pufa-laden mayonnaise and alfalfa sprouts. Yes really, I was convinced this was healthy at the time. It also tasted healthy for some reason.
F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

Texas sheet cake with holes punched into it for jello to be poured into, and then iced with canned icing - accompanied by really sweet instant tea made from granules, sugared soda, and "ice cream" in those really cheap single-serving plastic pots.

Oh, good grief! I think I have done every single thing ALL of you have mentioned!!
All as a kid, not post-Primal.
25 or so years ago, I tasted soy milk. That taste forever convinced me soy is revolting and shouldn't be eaten :2lol
I used to eat frosties from the box, and malt powder from the tin. Hot dogs (though never cheerios - in Australia, these are mini hot dogs), food colouring. (seems Australia may not have had many of the options you all did - thank god! - we've only recently started making? importing? krispy kremes)
I have to ask, how on earth do you fry coke???
post ptimal - organic home made popcorn and cornflakes
I once made a homemade tofurkey.You blended tofu with agar.... it was a process. There was corn oil too in it for flavor.
But non- primal- I'll fess up- lean cuisines. The mac and cheese. I'd try and burn it in the microwave because the burning helped it taste better.
Also deep fried ice cream- it came wrapped in a 1/2" layer of pound cake. It was bizarre. But oddly delicious with cool whip.
Oh yeah- cool whip- I used to love cool whip. I worked with weight watchers members who ate it by the tub because it was low in points.
