Hot Pockets are a household item and you would hardly find a freezer in the USA that doesn’t have a box or two of Hot Pockets. But how did they become the go-to snack in America?
Hot Pockets were first sold in 1983 in the stores and these were invented by two brothers, Paul and David Merage, and were called “Chunk Stuffers”.
Once available only as frozen pizza sandwiches, Hot Pockets have now transformed into a very different food item.
Flavors like sausage, egg, and cheese have transformed Hot Pockets into a heat-n-eat breakfast option. These flavors taste better than some fast food items that you might eat at breakfast.
Here are some interesting facts that you should know about the Millenials’ favorite snack:
Hot Pockets have a long list of ingredients. The worrying thing is that not all of them are healthy. First off, the calorie count of a single Hot Pocket is 300, thanks to sugar, fats, additives, and a handful of preservatives.
These also include other substances such as sodium phosphate, carrageenan, and sodium nitrates. When consumed in small amounts, these substances aren’t harmful.
However, if consumed regularly these can lead to both short-term and long-term health problems ranging from diarrhea to heart disease.
