Just because a celebrity is paid to say they like something doesn't mean you have to buy what they're shilling -- especially if it has the nutritional value of a Styrofoam cup. Here are the worst celebrity "seals of approval" on some of the most unlikely (and often unhealthy) foods.

10 Unappetizing Celebrity Food Endorsements

Rap Snacks: Various Artists

Each Rap Snack chip package features famous rappers accompanied by empowering phrases like "Stay in School"and "Reading is Fundamental."Rapper Dirt McGirt's bag with the words, "Think responsibly," seems a tad ironic considering McGirt, (real name Russell Tyrone Jones) died of a drug overdose in 2004.

Breakfast Cereal: Mr. T

Mr. T Cereal hit grocery stores in 1984, capitalizing on the success of the show the A-TeamWe pity the foolish parents who bought this sugary cereal for their kids.

Strange-shapedCandy: Miley Cyrus

Forget about the fact that this candy looks suspiciously like something else. Rather, focus on the fact that Hannah Montana has her own candy. Two things that should never go together.

Dunkin' Donuts: Rachel Ray

Among others, Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain called out Rachael Ray for endorsing Dunkin' Donuts. "She's hugely influential, particularly with children," he told Outside magazine. "And she's endorsing Dunkin' Donuts. It's like endorsing crack for kids."

Pastamania: Hulk Hogan

Want to bulk up like Hulk Hogan kids? Eat your carbs!

Wesson Vegetable Oil: Florence Henderson

Since we never saw the Brady Bunches' Mrs. Brady cook anything for her massive blended brood (unless she was helping out Alice) she seems an unlikely candidate to tout a cooking oil. Florence Henderson was the Wesson Vegetable Oil spokesperson from 1976 to 1996.

Macaroni Mouth Poppers: Dwight Yoakam

Singer-songwriter, actor Dwight Yoakam may know his way around a stage but he seems to know NOTHING about nutrition. Need proof. Check out his fried cheese Macaroni Mouth Poppers. We dare you..

Carl's Jr: Paris Hilton

Hamburger chain Carl's Jr. made no apologies for its Spicy Burger television commercial, which ran in 2005 and featured Paris Hilton inexplicably washing a car and eating a burger.

Big Mo' Candy BAR: NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

The 'Mo in Dale Earnhardt, Jr. candy bars is supposed to be inspired by the race car drivers' hometown of Mooreville of North Carolina. But that's the least of it's problemes. According to the product info: the bar was tailored to please his [Earnhardts] palate." But not yours.

Kellogg's Frosted Flakes: Michael Phelps

Olympian Michael Phelps, who famously has a junk food addiction began shilling for Kellogg's Corn Flakes and Frosted Flakes back in 2008.The swimming champion was criticized for his endorsement of the sugary processed cereal by nutritionists like Rebecca Solomon of Mount Sanai Medical Center who told the New York Daily News, "I would not consider Frosted Flakes the food of an Olympian."
