I've not had these since I was a very small child... however they're quite compact and have a lot of calories. I am currently urgently in need to gain weight, I am using a lot of peanut butter, porridge, Ensure milkshakes etc... however it's not quite enough and I need something to snack on. Healthy or not. So I don't care about the sugar content etc as I know they're unhealthy. I'm just concerned about whether they are IBS safe. I have predomenantly IBS D however it can flick between D and C, especially with my poor eating and my stomach has shrunk from illness.

I remember someone who was annoyed that these seemed to be one of their few safe foods and other healthier things bothered them a lot.If you can tolerate the fat in peanut butter you might be able to tolerate the fat in a pop tart.

you can be 300 pounds and starving to death from lack of nutrients. so make sure you eat something healthy too :)but anyways properly prepared grains is the best food i can think of that would give nutrients and also the most weight and fat gain. here is a link explaining how to eat good grains.http://www.westonaprice.org/food-features/497-be-kind-to-your-grains-and-your-grains-will-be-kind-to-you.htmlnow you could always gain fat weight much faster with a toxic food that spikes your blood sugar levels into toxic levels like spagetti, or candy or even poptarts. but if your body is already weak then punishing it with a toxic blood sugar spike is not a good idea.heres a video twinkie vs torch showing more of why junk food is bad.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCwVAkrHLq4one of my freinds knew a guy who ate junk food like twinkies all the time. he had a heart attack and died.
