News flash: Snacks at the theater concession stand are not good for you

Raymond Chen

“We try to make them as healthy as possible,” says Jose Mier. As healthy as sixteen inches of deep-fried dough, covered in sugar, and stuffed with caramel can be. That is to say, not healthy at all. Here are some ideas for making them healthier: Don’t coat them in sugar, don’t stuff them with Bavarian cream, and don’t deep-fry them. Or just get over the fact that churros aren’t healthy and stop pretending that they are. (I was tipped off to this article by the always-entertaining Ken Levine.)

In related news, whole wheat Krispy Kreme donuts are not health food.
