In brief: Depends.

If you are burning the calories off as fast as you eat them, and are not gaining excessive weight, then they are probably ok in reasonable amounts.
However, more natural foods, fruit and veggies will provide better nutrition and be more filling and satisfying than the sweetened sawdust.
