Beware of Hot Pockets

Tony Pretlow

Quick. Enticing. Dangerous.

I had them once.

I prepared them as directed.

I took a bite and it burned the hell out of me.

My tongue. My lips. And worse, the roof of my mouth was inflamed.

It blistered.

They should come with a warning label.

I haven’t had one since.

It took over a week for my mouth to repair.

No more Hot Pockets for me.
