I was at Disneyland and encountered almost all of those choices. Pretty scary until I saw an ice cream shop and got some frozen yogurt. Better than that stuff! Great article!

Usually I can pass on everything but Funnel cake. It took me a long time to learn to pass on the funnel cake. Still once in a while~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hi- thank God I hate everything on that list! I actually don`t eat much at theme parks- too busy screaming my head off on all the rides my kids force me go on and I come out feeling nauseous and dizzy and thanking God I came out alive!! Planning Six Flags in D.C. this summer for the kids, trying to get the hubby to take them with other men so that i can have a girlie day out! Had a great session at the gym today, really forced myself to go into my zone and switch off from the world around me and just jog and cycle like a crazy woman. The yoga was even more amazing- it`s so satisfying and thrilling to feel the improvement in my flexibility - i`m amazed what a difference 3 months of yoga has made- my stomach is toning up, i`m able to jog for longer outside because my breathing is so much better. I just hope I can keep up this momentum until I leave for the U.S.
I would highly recommend any form of yoga to anyone who plans to start, it relaxes you, flexibility improves and you will begin to see dramatic physical changes within 3-6months.

i enjoy funnel cake also but it's only once a year whenever the fair is going on. there are lots of things but that is the only thing that i will indulge in at that time. i guess that it's alright just as long as i don't do it more often than that. the fair is only once a year around my b-day so i do enjoy it.

I love funnel cake too. Thank goodness I am not a big theme park fan.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Funnel Cake and always plan on enjoying it when I go to Canada's Wonderland--once a year, maybe, however, I get it plain and share it with friends while we wait in line for the next ride.

Also, I get a corn dog at the CNE--again, once a year and only at the one specific booth no other corndog will do. Then I finish off my day with an ice-cream waffle and AGAIN only at one specific booth because?...yes you guessed it--no other one will do.

That is it for me and theme park food. I enjoy these treats once a year and then I am done.

I'm guilty of the sno cones. The rest just don't do it for me. Never had a funnel cake. Looks like a giant donut.

Wow! What ana rticle!1

I'm guilty of indulging in the cotton Candy on several occasions and OMG Funnel Cake from Knotts Berry Farm in buena Park, California. But this is an eye opener...

The over dramatic article titles do amuse me sometimes.

Well I am not certain how many of us venture to theme parks these days but that doesn't mean we won't come in contact with these foods. I cannot see anything on the list that you cannot get just about anywhere these days.

I think its all pretty straight forward, fair food or not if you didn't know that this crap is bad for you, well you have more food issues than I can possibly deal with or want to.

Despire trying to show restraint when it comes to such foods I have to say that #2 on the list is indeed veil incarnate and if in fact I partake in funnel cake I have absolutetly no illusions about its caloric content or indeed its health value (I'd say about -1) but from a food addict point of view I cannot think of a better food to dive face first into which is why I am thankful that they charge a gate fee to get into the park. I am not going to pay $10 just to get in and get some food so I am thankful for the small things.

The Nacho's really surprise me, ok chips covered in cheese sauce is not something I ever considered "healthy"
But that little box of cheese covered evil really packs a punch 1,100 calories? wow.
I don't know why I am so surprised, I guess its just reafirms the fact for me that its ESSENTIAL to log every thing that goes into my mouth or better yet if something like this is planned to at least know what I am getting into before hand.

With the advent of smart phones which most people have these days one can hop right on the internet and look up food and see what they are getting into, hell spark people has an android app...hmm I need to put that on my phone..well I've added it to my phone what a great little app :)
