You can argue that at least there are some usable nutrients in stuff that contains a lot of fat (just too MUCH of the one nutrient) but our carb needs are so low in comparison
with what you get from even a small portion of, say, jelly beans, that you have zero need of them.

Doesn't stop me from consuming them, of course.....
